EAST LANSING, Mich. — For the third consecutive year, MSU Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) has been named as one of the Credit Union Journal's Best Credit Unions to Work For®. This award recognizes MSUFCU's value of investing in its employees' wellbeing and development while creating an engaging and motivating environment through which employees can excel.  


“We want to be a place for employees to continually develop and enhance their skills,” said Silvia Dimma, MSUFCU's Chief Human Resources Officer. “Through internal programs focused on wellness and professional development, we inspire employees to improve both their personal wellbeing and professional growth.”


This award was based on results from recent surveys completed by employees regarding MSUFCU policies, procedures, demographics, and practices. Employees indicated several reasons why they like working at MSUFCU including:

  • The ability to use paid volunteer time off to volunteer for their favorite charities and participate in MSUFCU-sponsored charitable events
  • Access to wellness rooms at each building for employees to take a break or make a personal call
  • The annual “Health and Wellness” fair at the Headquarters campus where they can learn how to improve their own health.


MSUFCU has a national reputation for excellence and has received several top industry and workplace awards. For the sixth year in a row, MSUFCU was named as a Top Workplace in the large employer category by the Detroit Free Press. This year, it was again recognized as one of CU Journal’s Best Credit Unions to Work For, a Michigan Best and Brightest in Wellness award winner, and is certified as a Great Place to Work®. In 2017, it was recognized as a Best Workplace for Women by Fortune Magazine, and an Outstanding Credit Union of the Year by the Michigan Credit Union League. MSUFCU has also been nationally recognized for its financial education initiatives, ranking first in Michigan and second in the nation for the 2017 Alphonse Desjardins Adult Financial Education award by the Credit Union National Association. Founded in 1937, MSUFCU has 18 branches, more than 267,000 members, $4.2 billion in assets, and nearly 900 employees.
