BRIGHTON, MICH (PRWEB) NOVEMBER 12, 2018
On Friday, November 9, 2018, Lake Trust Credit Union was named a 2018 Detroit Free Press Top Workplace in the Midsize Business category in the 11th annual awarding of the designation.
“We’re honored to be named a 2018 Detroit Free Press Top Workplace,” said Lake Trust Credit Union President and CEO David Snodgrass. “This is especially significant because it represents employers across Michigan. It starts with how we make a difference in people’s lives, not just our team members and members but also our neighbors. We act in the 35 counties we serve and through our Moved By Good Day, our dedicated initiative to help local non-profit organizations. I thank every Team Lake Trust member because they build and strengthen our unique culture of making that difference.”
A feature of Lake Trust’s workplace experience is that its branches feature an open, modern look, as does its 100,000-square-foot headquarters, which won a 2018 American Institute of Architects Detroit Architectural Honor Award, in Brighton. Lake Trust has also announced plans for a new branch in Detroit in 2019.
“The open look and feel truly represents our distinctive philosophy. It promotes thinking differently and encourages collaborative conversation and team interaction,” said Brandalynn Winchester-Middlebrook, Lake Trust Senior Vice President of Culture and Community Engagement. “It is part of our DNA, which our team members appreciate. Lake Trust Credit Union and the Lake Trust Foundation do donate funds to worthy causes but what also makes us a Top Workplace is our ongoing emphasis on doing good. Our team members give of themselves.
That active community connection energizes us and makes Lake Trust the place we look forward to working at every day.”
