Canopy Credit Union was recently recognized as the 7th Best Credit Union to Work For in the nation by American Banker.
Canopy was one of 70 credit unions to make this year’s list, which includes organizations of all sizes, varying from 28 employees to over 3,000. To make the list, credit unions needed to be scored well by their employees on two surveys, one evaluating employee satisfaction and the other credit union benefits and policies.

This achievement highlights Canopy’s thriving company culture and dedication to its employees. “We are very intentional about creating a supportive workplace and going above and beyond to support our employees,” said Canopy President/CEO Charlotte Nemec. “To be named 7th Best Credit Union to Work For in the nation is a huge honor. I know what we have here at Canopy is special, but it still blew us all away.”
Canopy has a history of being recognized for being a great place to work. Most recently, it was ranked the 13th best mid-sized company to work for in Washington state by the Seattle Business Magazine in 2021 and made the list of the Best Places to Work in the INW in 2020 and 2021.
Nemec believes that cultivating a healthy company culture not only benefits employees, but also members. “When our employees are happy at work, our members are served more efficiently and compassionately. Members and future members will be happy to hear that their credit union is healthy, believes in treating employees well and is ready to serve them.”
