OneAZ Credit Union is committed to our mission of truly improving the lives of our members, our associates and the communities we serve. In 2019, OneAZ put a strong emphasis on making our members’ experience easy, enjoyable and effective, supporting Arizona businesses and making our associates’ jobs more efficient.
In 2019, we focused on member satisfaction by taking a holistic look at how we serve our members and making their feedback a priority. Gathering their input helps us understand member interactions and discover areas for opportunity. Thanks to our members, we are optimizing processes and improving associate-tomember communication.
Every organizational improvement we make serves not only our members, but also our associates. In order to ensure that we are hearing our associates’ feedback, we launched several internal surveys in 2019 to gauge associate satisfaction, communication and internal service. We learned a great deal from their helpful responses and are continually using this feedback to improve internal processes and enhance our organizational cohesion.
We continue to identify ways to improve OneAZ’s company culture and introduce exciting new benefits for our associates. In addition to our competitive compensation, healthcare and lifestyle benefits, we are also introducing new perks like paid time off for pet care and 100-percent gym membership reimbursement. In 2019, we began offering student loan repayment assistance, and, thanks to the positive response from our associates, we are increasing the payment amount.
OneAZ strives to continually support and strengthen the Arizona economy. In 2019, we established a Legacy Partnership with Local First Arizona that has opened doors for OneAZ to connect with Arizona’s small-business community on a new level. As a local financial institution, we provide vital products and services to Arizona’s small-business owners. Decisions are made locally, with Arizona’s needs in mind.
We are proud to be Arizona’s credit union. From our founding in 1951 to 2020 and beyond, we are here for Arizonans whenever they need to call on their local financial experts.
