Why It's a Great Employer

Seventy-five percent of jobs at ESL Federal Credit Union are filled internally. This is due in part to the company's "iVisit" program, which encourages employees to visit other departments within the company to foster teamwork and bring awareness of job opportunities. Each floor of ESL's corporate headquarters features floor-to-ceiling artistic signs highlighting values such as accountability, teamwork, caring about people, integrity and initiative. As a way of celebrating these values, employees nominate each other for Values in Practice Awards. Nominations are reviewed monthly by the "Recognition Ambassadors" team, and winners receive a cash award as well as an invitation to a quarterly breakfast hosted by the CEO.
