(N. Charleston, S.C.) – 1/14/2021 – South Carolina Federal Credit Union has once again been recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in 2021 by Glassdoor. South Carolina Federal ranked No. 30 in the U.S. small and medium company category with an overall company rating of 4.8 out of 5.

The credit union is committed to the comprehensive wellness – including physical, mental, emotional, and financial health – of every employee. Employees thrive in a culture anchored by shared values, strong leadership, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and continuous professional development and career advancement opportunities. In 2020, the credit union celebrated 51 internal promotions and earned an Excellence in Workplace Diversity award from the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce.

"Like so many others, we experienced significant changes to our workplace and operations last year, and we took the necessary steps to ensure that every employee received the support they needed," said Leslie Norris, senior vice president of human resources and development at South Carolina Federal. "In the face of unprecedented challenges, our employees were unwavering as they continued to bring their passion and go above and beyond to serve our members. We are honored to receive this recognition and are enormously grateful to our team for their honest and authentic reviews."

“This year’s winning employers have proven, according to employees, that even during extraordinary times, they’ll rise to the challenge to support their people,” said Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor chief executive officer. “A mission-driven culture, transparent leadership, and career opportunities are always hallmarks of Best Places to Work winners. This year, we also see exceptional employers who have prioritized the health, safety, and well-being of their employees.”

Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work were determined using company reviews shared by U.S.-based employees between October 22, 2019 and October 19, 2020. To be considered for the U.S. small and medium company category, a company must have had fewer than 1,000 employees and have received at least 30 ratings across eight workplace attributes.
