At BECU, we’re working to cultivate a great work environment where employees are respected and valued. Last year, we introduced a new program – BILD – that fosters innovation, increases engagement, and improves business decisions.
Here’s what Belonging, Inclusion and Leveraging Differences (BILD) means to BECU:
Belonging: We want everyone to feel accepted and connected to the BECU community.
Inclusion: We want everyone to be treated fairly and respectfully, with equal access to opportunities and resources.
Leveraging Differences: We want everyone to bring their whole and real selves to work, making the most of our differences.
Aiding Financial Well-being
Our commitment to financial health includes BECU employees. Our Financial Health Check provided employees with assistance on budgeting, saving and reducing debt, while our Employee Investment Program encourages employees to take advantage of a complimentary financial review with BECU Investment Services.
Lending a Hand
We know financial emergencies can burden employees, as well as members. Eligible BECU employees can borrow up to one month’s salary through the BECU Employee Assistance Loan Program; this is our way of discouraging payday loans or other high-rate, high-fee loans that can be harmful to financial health.
We’re preparing the next generation of credit union advocates. Each summer, BECU’s 12-week internship program focuses on career development by hiring students and recent college graduates who become an integral part of the teams they work with. Interns attend weekly lunch-and-learns with BECU executives, perform community volunteer activities and receive real-life experience in our Communications, Recruiting, IT Systems, Accounting and Lending departments.
