Centricity Credit Union of City has been honored with a 2021 Louise Herring Philosophy-in-Action Member Service Award.
The award, sponsored by the Minnesota Credit Union Network (MnCUN) and the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), recognizes credit unions that demonstrate in an extraordinary way the practical application of the movement's principles in serving their members.
The credit union was honored for the Distance Learning Program, which allowed Credit Union Employees to bring their kids to work with them by creating distance learning centers in lobbies, conference rooms, and offices. In branches where more than one student was working, stations had Plexiglas partitions so students could more safely distance from one another and avoid spreading germs. All students were required to wear masks, wash hands frequently and undergo temperature checks upon arrival.
The program continued until students were allowed to return to classrooms.
“Basically our goal is helping the kids get their homework done throughout the day so when mom or dad go home they can parent and be a family, and not have to be on the kids to get their homework done.” - Cyndy Carlson, Director of Human Resources
