East Hartford-based American Eagle Financial Credit Union was recently named as one of the Best Places to Work in Connecticut by the Hartford Business Journal (HBJ).
This fifteenth annual recognition program was created by HBJ and Best Companies Group to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in Connecticut, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses. The list is made up of 41 companies split into two categories: 24 small/medium-sized companies (15-199 US employees) and 17 large-sized companies (200 or more US employees). American Eagle Financial Credit Union has been named one of this year’s Best Places to Work in Connecticut in the large-sized category.
“Our workforce of approximately 320 employees collaborate and engage with one another purposely for the benefit of our members, and through such efforts we have created a dynamic, responsive and committed team,” said Susan Bushnik, senior vice president & chief talent officer for American Eagle. “We are honored to be recognized by the Hartford Business Journal.”
To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
- Be a for-profit business, not-for-profit business or government entity;
- Be a publicly or privately held business;
- Have a facility in Connecticut;
- Have at least 15 employees in Connecticut;
- Be in business a minimum of 1 year.
Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Connecticut. The first part consisted of evaluating each company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Connecticut, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.
The ranked companies will be recognized at a special awards ceremony in February, and the actual rankings will be published in the March issue of the Hartford Business Journal. For more information on the Best Places to Work in Connecticut program, visit www.BestPlacestoWorkinCT.com.
