UW Credit Union has received an Excellence Award for Strategic Leadership from the CUNA Human Resources Training Development Council.
This is the second time the institution has received the award. It was bestowed in recognition of UWCU’s emerging leader program, which prepares employees for leadership roles over one year of training in corporate strategy, core business functions and mentorship.
Since the emerging leader program began in 2012, 89 percent of leadership roles have been filled by current employees, up from 40 percent in 2011.
“This award is a reflection of our commitment to developing and promoting leadership from within our organization,” said Lee Wiersma, executive vice president and chief human resources officer of UW Credit Union. “We’re proud of our efforts that support and encourage employees’ continuous learning and engagement.”
