SAFE Credit Union named Best Place to Work in the Sacramento area for second year in a row

FOLSOM, Calif. (Oct. 10, 2019) – SAFE Credit Union was named a Best Place to Work in the Greater Sacramento area by the Sacramento Business Journal for the second year in a row.

SAFE received the award at a luncheon celebrating the best workplaces in California’s capital region. SAFE was honored for being a Best Very Large Place To Work in Sacramento. The award is based on results from surveys sent on behalf of the Sacramento Business Journal to employees at small to large companies in the region.

“We are extremely honored for this recognition from the Sacramento Business Journal, and from our employees,” said SAFE Credit Union President and CEO Dave Roughton. “It’s true, to have happy members, you need to have happy employees. Here at SAFE we do that by providing growth opportunities, collaboration, and supporting work-life balance so our employees – and our 235,000 members -- can enjoy life.”

SAFE Credit Union has about 700 employees who work in 20 branches, a local call center, and in corporate headquarters in Folsom.  

“We are so excited that SAFE Credit Union is again a Best Place to Work in the Sacramento area,” said SAFE Vice President of Employee Services Jenny Santos. “We definitely stand out from other employers in many ways. We’re a large nonprofit with membership open to anyone living and working in the Greater Sacramento area. We have a diverse employee mix. Our employees run the gamut from service representatives, IT security, technical innovators, and financial experts. What’s particularly special about this award is it’s based on our employees’ responses, not someone from the outside looking in. It proves that our employees appreciate the supportive culture here at SAFE.”

SAFE employees cited various reasons why they think the credit union is the best place to work. Among those were belonging to a culture centered around providing the credit union’s members exceptional service, generous benefits that include no-cost health insurance for employees,  Babies in the Workplace program that allows new parents to bring their infants to work, and opportunities for career advancement.
