VERID­IAN CREDIT UNION OF­FERS the WILD pro­gram: Work­shops for In­di­vid­ual Lead­er­ship De­vel­op­ment, which al­lows em­ploy­ees to select from a va­ri­ety of lead­er­ship top­ics that best ap­ply to their in­ter­ests and ca­reer de­vel­op­ment, ex­plained Man­ager of Hu­man Re­sources Molly Sch­midt.

“Verid­ian fos­ters a lead­er­ship cul­ture where em­ploy­ees are em­pow­ered to make de­ci­sions in our mem­bers’ best in­ter­ests,” said Sch­midt. “We want em­ploy­ees to feel val­ued and wel­come to bring their whole selves to work.”

The “CU Fit Com­mit­tees” are com­prised of em­ploy­ees who mo­ti­vate co­work­ers to en­gage in life­style choices that lead to a healthy mind, body and soul. “Some ex­am­ples of the ac­tiv­i­ties th­ese com­mit­tees co­or­di­nate in­clude well­ness chal­lenges, 5k events and gym mem­ber­ship discounts,” said Sch­midt.

Fri­days at Verid­ian CU al­low em­ploy­ees to dress ca­su­ally but with a spe­cific pur­pose, and are re­ferred to as “Ca­sual Day Fundrais­ing.”

“We des­ig­nate Fri­day as our day to dress ca­sual in Verid­ian ap­parel. Em­ploy­ees give back with ev­ery pay­check and at the end of the year they help de­ter­mine where the money goes,” said Sch­midt. “The money raised is dis­trib­uted to char­i­ties and the Credit Union Leg­isla­tive Ac­tion Coun­cil.”

Founded in 1934, Verid­ian Credit Union sup­ports 30 branches serves more than 208,000 mem­bers.

Verid­ian staff, in­clud­ing the pic­tured Univer­sity Hy-vee branch team, re­cently cel­e­brated an up­grade to the credit union’s on­line and mo­bile bank­ing plat­form.
