717 Credit Union Among Best Workplaces in Northeastern Ohio

WARREN, Ohio – 717 Credit Union has been recognized as one of 99 great employers for top talent in northeastern Ohio. 

For the second consecutive year, 717 was named a NorthCoast 99 award winner by the Employers Resource Council, which chooses 99 northeastern Ohio organizations that build and maintain exceptional workplaces through policies, practices and benefits that attract and retain top performing talent.

NorthCoast 99 covers a 22-county region of northeastern Ohio.

“We are beyond honored to have earned this award once again,” said Gary Soukenik, president and CEO of 717 Credit Union. “We have great pride in our employees, and I know for a fact that our success is directly related to our 717 family and the exceptional service our staff gives to our members. We could not give members the respect they deserve without those very employees who constantly look for ways to do their jobs more efficiently, compassionately and with integrity.”

NorthCoast 99 winners were ranked on how they address top-performer attraction, development and retention in the areas of organizational strategy, policies and benefits; talent attraction, acquisition and onboarding; employee well-being; employee engagement and talent development; total rewards; and diversity, equity and inclusion.

717 Credit Union also was recently ranked a top 100 Credit Union in the United States and No. 1 in Ohio by S&P Global Market Insights for the second year in a row. Forbes also recently named 717 to its list of Best-In-State Credit Unions.
