Credit unions pride themselves on being ethical in every area of business. To be recognized for this endeavor is arguably the greatest honor a credit union could earn.
Over the past year as Americans continued navigating the most serious economic crisis in modern history, Unitus Community Credit Union’s ethical business practices were on full display and recognized last week at the Oregon Ethics in Business Awards competition.
The 70,000-member credit union was in good company for the tribute, which celebrates organizations and individuals demonstrating ethical business practices in the workplace, the marketplace, the environment and the community. Other beloved and well-known entities honored included Dave’s Killer Bread, the bakery creating high quality organic breads, and the Loaves and Fishes food program for seniors.
“We are highly honored to have been nominated and selected as a finalist for such a prestigious award and that the process for selecting the winners was intensive and very professional,” said Unitus President/CEO Patricia Smith.
Unitus was among the finalists recognized for the prestigious award because of its “People Helping People” principle. The Credit Union offered 64 financial education seminars and its employees volunteered 1,200 hours of their time to local causes last year.
