Diamond Credit Union learned that it ranked 14th among mid-sized companies in the 2018 Best Places to Work in PA survey and awards program. It was announced in September that Diamond earned a spot on the list for a third consecutive year. The Credit Union was also ranked in 2017 and 2016.
Rankings for Best Places to Work in PA were revealed on November 29 at a state-wide awards ceremony held at the Lancaster County Convention Center in downtown Lancaster. “We were honored to accept the award on behalf of our entire staff as this recognition is a tribute to them,” said John Faust, President/CEO of Diamond Credit Union. “They make the difference by cultivating a comfortable, supportive and rewarding work environment.”
The hit musical film “The Greatest Showman” was the inspiration for the theme of this year’s ceremony. With that theme in mind, diamondcu.org takes you behind the curtain at Diamond Credit Union:
