ON THE FIRST DAY OF WORK AT OMNI Com­mu­nity Credit Union, em­ploy­ees en­ter ori­en­ta­tion and learn about the credit union’s “shared value model” from se­nior lead­er­ship.

“In the most ba­sic terms, if the credit union is suc­cess­ful, we share this suc­cess with our mem­bers, our team mem­bers and our com­mu­ni­ties,” said Chief Hu­man Re­sources Of­fi­cer Patty Neff. “Our team is what makes Omni great.”

Ori­en­ta­tion is the first step on what ex­ec­u­tives hope will be a long-tenured ca­reer tra­jec­tory. When a po­si­tion opens up, the first thought is to hire from within. Neff said the credit union has de­vel­oped pro­grams to make in­house ca­reer growth a re­al­ity.

“We love to pro­mote from within the or­ga­ni­za­tion. In 2016, we had 36 po­si­tion open­ings and filled 30 from within our or­ga­ni­za­tion – that’s 83 per­cent,” she said. “Our di­rect mem­ber sur­vey re­sults show our team mem­bers are happy and pro­vide great mem­ber ser­vice.”

Among in-house pro­gram ini­tia­tives is the Young Lead­ers Lunch Group, which was in­sti­tuted in 2017 with the goal of pre­par­ing team mem­bers for fu­ture lead­er­ship roles. Ad­di­tion­ally, Omni Com­mu­nity CU has its own in­ter­nal so­cial net­work, CU So­cial.

“We love to post an­nounce­ments, recog­ni­tion and share our per­sonal news on CU So­cial,” said Neff. “Our em­ploy­ees re­ally value the sense of greater pur­pose their ca­reers pro­vide them. Omni isn’t just a place to work; it’s a place to be­long, where their work is mean­ing­ful and val­ued.”

Founded in 1951, the Omni Com­mu­nity Credit Union cur­rently op­er­ates 11 branches serv­ing more than 37, 000 mem­bers.

Omni Com­mu­nity Credit Union em­ploy­ees cel­e­brate the 2016 Team En­rich­ment Day.
