Diamond Credit Union got all fired up having been named one of the Best Places to Work in PA for 2017. “All Fired Up” was the theme for this year’s awards banquet held at the Lancaster County Convention Center in Lancaster, PA, on November 30, 2017, where Diamond learned they ranked #15 in medium-sized companies throughout Pennsylvania. This is the second year that Diamond Credit Union made the coveted list.
“What a finer testament of the culture we strive to create within our credit union. Everything we do, centers around how we treat others – amongst our ourselves, our members, and our community – and we do all we can to make every day a great day,” stated John Faust, President/CEO of Diamond Credit Union.
“At Diamond, we feel the most important things we can offer our employees are the opportunity for career and personal growth, the opportunity to be involved with outreach in the community, and the opportunity to contribute to the prosperity of our members,” added Beth Walton, VP/Chief Human Resources Officer.

The Best Places to Work in PA is a survey and awards program dedicated to identifying and recognizing the state’s best employers and providing organizations with valuable employee feedback. The awards program, created in 2000, is one of the first statewide programs of its kind in the country. The program is a public/private partnership between Team Pennsylvania Foundation, the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, the Pennsylvania State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management, and the Central Penn Business Journal.
This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Pennsylvania, who are benefiting the state’s economy and its workforce. Employers are categorized based upon the total number of employees they have in the United States, 15 to 99 employees, 100 to 250 employees, or more than 250 employees.
To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
– Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business
– Be a publicly or privately held business
– Have a facility in Pennsylvania
– Have at least 15 employees working in Pennsylvania
– Be in business a minimum of one year
Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the 100 Best Places to Work in PA. The first part of this process was evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophies, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process. The complete listing can be found here.
