Top Workplace

Community 1st Credit Union received its fifth straight Des Moines Register “Top Workplace” award. The newspaper recognized 150 Iowa companies and organizations for the 2020 honor on September 13.

C1st was 12th on the list of Mid-Sized company employers, which is an all-time high for the Credit Union.  C1st currently has 226 employees and 17 branch locations.  With the 18th opening in Osceola, IA in 2021.

The employer honor is based on results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a research firm specializing in organizational health and workplace environment.

“We are delighted to be named a Top Workplace in Iowa for the fifth year in a row,” said C1st President and CEO Greg Hanshaw.  “Being 12th out of 50 businesses is an additional honor and an all-time high for C1st!  The results show we continue to have something truly special happening here.”   

Several aspects of workplace culture were measured including alignment, execution and connection. WorkplaceDynamics first published the list in 2006. 

“The most successful companies are the ones that employees believe in,” reads a quote from the WorkplaceDynamics website.

The credit union has branches in Albia, Bloomfield, Cedar Rapids, Centerville, Chariton, Fairfield, Grinnell, Indianola, Knoxville, Mount Pleasant, Oskaloosa, Ottumwa, Pella and Washington. And one coming soon in Osceola, IA.
