Recognized for Overall Excellence in Human Capital Management
WEST JORDAN, UT--(Marketwired - Sep 19, 2014) - Mountain America Credit Union has been named to the inaugural Workforce 100 list of the world's best companies for human capital management. Developed by Workforce, a leading magazine in the human resources field for more than 90 years, the list represents the first time research and statistical analysis have been applied to ranking the impact and effectiveness of an organization's HR function.
"It is an honor to be recognized for our efforts in human capital management," said Lynn Stephens, senior vice president of human resources for Mountain America. "We believe our focus on hiring and retaining quality employees helps us to better serve our members in every way, as the member experience begins and ends with our employees. We have seen significant value in investing in our employees' training and engaging them in all aspects of our organization. We find a direct correlation between employee engagement and member engagement, and strive to provide a work environment and culture that creates great results."
Inclusion on the Workforce 100 list reflects Mountain America Credit Union's exceptional performance in seven core areas indicative of overall HR excellence: workplace culture; employee benefits; diversity and inclusion; employee development/talent management; HR innovation/management; leadership development; and recruiting and talent acquisition.
"Companies named to the Workforce 100 truly exemplify the best practices and most effective strategies being used to manage and maximize the impact of human capital today," said Rick Bell, Workforce managing editor. "Workforce is proud to acknowledge Mountain America Credit Union's commitment and accomplishments."
In compiling the list, the Workforce editorial staff worked directly with the Human Capital Media Advisory Group, the magazine's research arm, to develop a statistically based formula that could analyze publicly available company information as well as benchmarking and ranking data. The formula was used to generate a score averaged and weighted across the seven core areas, creating a ranked list with comprehensive HR performance as the primary focus.
