Leadership Insights: What Makes Apple FCU a Great Place to Work

A Message from Chief People Officer, Sharon Camper

Spring always reminds me that Apple Federal Credit Union is in a special part of the Washington Metropolitan area.

Northern Virginia is not just beautiful; it's also home to an amazing and diverse collection of intelligent, talented individuals. Here we have parts of the federal government, Fortune 500 companies, a vibrant technology community and some of the best schools in the country. We're lucky to work in such an incredible community.

One of the best parts of my job as Apple Federal Credit Union's Chief People Officer is recruiting talented team members who bolster Apple's reputation for superior service and helping them find their careers at our credit union.

Apple FCU is a great place to work. Don't just take my word for it; we've won multiple Washington Post Top Workplace awards and been named a Top Workplace and one of American Banker's Best Credit Unions to Work For several times.

Our talented and diverse team plays an essential role in providing value for our members.

Best Place to Work

I am continually inspired by the incredible talents and unwavering commitment of our staff. Apple employees are especially dedicated to improving lives and fulfilling dreams; after all, we're serving our friends and neighbors.

As we celebrate the diversity within our organization, we also recognize the importance of equity and inclusion. We are committed to offering equal opportunities for growth and advancement, ensuring that every member of our team has the support and resources they need to succeed.

Through ongoing training, mentorship programs and transparent communication, we strive to create a workplace where all voices are heard, and all contributions are acknowledged. Our commitment to diversity helps us attract new talent, leads to more innovative thinking and lets us better serve our members.

Thanks to our members, we've achieved smart, sustainable growth over the years, with our employee count increasing by approximately 11% since 2021. This is partly due to our total rewards program. In addition to health, vision and dental, Apple FCU offers a competitive compensation and benefits package that includes a generous 401(k) contribution match, pension, tuition reimbursement, parental leave, paid time off and a bonus plan.

However, the main reason for our success is simple — Apple Federal Credit Union invests in its people.

Our credit union is committed to helping employees meet the changing needs of our members, which is why we provide pathways to develop and advance careers. Every employee must annually complete continuing education hours as part of their required learning. Our Talent Development team has received many awards for the creation and execution of skills-based training, career development and leadership preparedness programs.

No one knows our members' needs better than our staff. Whether it's assisting with a complex issue, offering expert advice or simply lending a compassionate ear, our team goes above and beyond to ensure that every member receives the highest level of service and care.

It is the job of every individual at Apple Federal Credit Union — whether they're helping members, developing products, protecting digital security or providing back-office support — to make banking easier.

Our Apple Culture

What sets Apple Federal Credit Union apart, in my opinion, is our corporate culture. Our dedication to improving lives and fulfilling dreams extends to our staff members and is reflected in our company's priorities.

Corporate culture at Apple Federal Credit Union means demonstrating our commitment to employees' well-being. This commitment is both the right thing to do and why we provide best-in-class service. Every time you interact with an Apple FCU team member, you will know that they are dedicated to our members and our mission.

An important part of a career at Apple is collaborating with other talented team members. We encourage staff to join one of our Employee Resource Groups — which help promote a more diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace — and to serve on one of our internal committees. It is through embracing our differences that we cultivate an environment where everyone feels valued, respected and empowered to contribute their best.

We also prioritize opportunities for team members to volunteer in our local communities, as all Apple employees receive annual paid leave for volunteer efforts. As we've said before, giving back is part of our culture at Apple; it makes us who we are.

What's Next

Working at Apple Federal Credit Union means constantly developing new skills and researching the latest trends to fulfill our mission of providing prompt, caring service for our members.

We live in an ever-changing world, with technological advancements constantly adjusting what consumers expect from their financial institutions. Apple FCU members deserve a consistent, delightful experience, whether that is online, over the phone or in person.

Ultimately, our culture of learning is all about finding new ways to provide superior experiences for our members. It is why our team is always looking to advance today's skills to meet tomorrow's needs.
