CORINTH – With employee health being one of the most important topics in the workplace due to the emergence of COVID-19, Hudson River Community Credit Union (HRCCU) is proud to announce that it has been named a 2020 Healthiest Employer by the Albany Business Review for the second straight year.
The awards program honors 30 companies in the Capital Region whose wellness programming and benefits go above and beyond. HRCCU works hard to cultivate a work environment and culture that is both fun and results oriented. They have built an enjoyable workplace for staff at their Operations Center complete with a full kitchen/break area, fitness facility and outdoor patio area. The credit union also brings in nutritionists and massage therapists periodically to help answer questions and keep their employees healthy.
“At HRCCU, we are really proud of the fact that we are able to offer our employees a workplace that integrates health into their work life,” said Sue Commanda, CEO. “Our company mission is to improve the financial well-being of our members, but we are also committed to improving the health and well-being of our employees. This is especially important with the rise of COVID-19 in our communities. We know that now more than ever we need to provide a workplace that is supportive of our employees’ physical, emotional and social well-being.”
Winners are determined by the Healthiest Employers LLC, a data and research company, which measures wellness and benefits factors using the Springbuk analytics platform. The assessment scored companies on their wellness program’s culture and leadership commitment, foundational components, strategic planning, communication and marketing, programming and interventions, and reporting and analysis.
Companies with an office of at least five employees were eligible in the following Capital Region counties: Albany, Columbia, Fulton, Greene, Montgomery, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Warren and Washington.
The winners were celebrated on July 30 at a virtual event.
