Achieva Credit Union has been named as one of Florida’s 10 best credit unions, based on a national survey of banking and credit union customers conducted by Forbes and market research firm Statista.
Nearly 25,000 people around the U.S. were surveyed about their financial dealings, with the institutions being rated on overall recommendations and customer satisfaction. Among the categories covered: trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services and financial advice.
Achieva ranked No. 10 on the list of Florida’s 10 best credit unions, a notable achievement given that only 3.6% of the nation’s financial institutions qualified for “best-in-state” status.
“Our inclusion on this list for the second time is a testament to our ongoing focus on personal service and the sophistication we offer with our digital and branch services,” said Achieva CEO Gary Regoli. “We continue to be dedicated to finding new ways to reach and serve our members, many of whom have had to completely adjust how they do their banking during the pandemic.”
Achieva is able to deliver on its strong service model thanks to its vibrant company culture, which includes everything from employees bringing their dogs to work to having team members decide on community donation recipients. Employee benefits expanded even further over the past year to include hybrid working options for eligible headquarters and support staff.
For eight consecutive years, Achieva has earned the Tampa Bay Times’ “Top Workplace” distinction, which is awarded to 100 companies across the Tampa Bay area, based on anonymous surveys completed by employees at each respective organization.
