RCU recognized by Forbes as one of America’s Best Small Employers
Santa Rosa, CA – Redwood Credit Union has been named by Forbes as one of “America’s Best Small Employers 2023.” The list ranks the 300 U.S. companies—with more than 200 employees, but fewer than 1,000—most highly recommended as a top place to work.
Brett Martinez President & CEO
"It’s an honor to be ranked as one of the best employers in the nation," said Brett Martinez, President and CEO of Redwood Credit Union. "We are purposeful about creating a supportive and inclusive culture that helps team members reach their full potential and build rewarding careers. I firmly believe that when employees are well cared for, they’re better able to care for our members. Given the growth we’re seeing at RCU with more members entrusting us with their financial well-being, I’d say we’re all doing something right."
To compile the list, Forbes partnered with the market research firm Statista, which implemented a wide range of assessment tools. These included anonymous surveys, social listening of news, websites, blogs and social media channels to assess the company’s relationship with its employees, and tracking of job-related websites to gauge employer reputation, engagement, retention, benefits, and more.
Out of the 300 U.S. companies that made the list, only four of them are California-based financial institutions, with RCU being one of the four. See the Forbes complete list here.
