ATOMIC CREDIT UNION SHUTS DOWN once a year, clos­ing all of­fices for a sin­gle day with the sole pur­pose of train­ing and ed­u­cat­ing em­ploy­ees as part of the an­nual “Atomic Credit Union Sym­po­sium.”

“Qual­ity train­ing and ed­u­ca­tion is pro­vided which en­ables our em­ploy­ees to per­form their jobs at a higher level,” said Vice Pres­i­dent of Hu­man Re­sources Julie Maple.

Train­ing and pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment for em­ploy­ees has proven to be a suc­cess­ful busi­ness model. To date, 91 per­cent of em­ploy­ees with two or more years of ser­vice at the CU have been pro­moted since their start date.

“Atomic Credit Union is a strong sup­porter of pro­mot­ing from within and the sym­po­sium pro­vides tools to our em­ploy­ees to as­sist them in grow­ing with our or­ga­ni­za­tion,” said Maple.

Pres­i­dent and CEO Tom Grif­fiths highly val­ues em­ployee in­put and feed­back and main­tains an open-door pol­icy. In 2016, prior to the strate-

gic plan­ning ses­sion, he emailed a pre-plan­ning ques­tion­naire to all em­ploy­ees ask­ing ev­ery­one to share their strate­gic thoughts, noted Maple.

“The ques­tion­naire pro­vided an op­por­tu­nity for em­ploy­ees to ex­press their own vi­sion of our or­ga­ni­za­tion and con­trib­ute ad­di­tional feed­back,” she said.

Founded in 1955, the Atomic Credit Union cur­rently op­er­ates 11 branches serv­ing more than 44,000 mem­bers.
