Coastal Credit Union Named Among Triangle’s Best Places to Work for Seventh Year in a Row

Coastal Credit Union

RALEIGH, N.C. (August 29, 2022 ) – Coastal Credit Union has earned a spot among the Triangle Business Journal’s Best Places to Work for 2022. This is the seventh year in a row that Coastal has been recognized, and the eighth time overall.

The winners were chosen based on an employee-survey conducted by Quantum Workplace. Once nominated, a company had to meet a threshold in employee participation – a percentage that varies based upon the size of the company – to be eligible to be honored.  Companies receive this award because their organization received high marks in areas such as team effectiveness, trust with co-workers, manager effectiveness and work engagement.

“Delivering an excellent experience for our members starts with an excellent employee experience,” said Joe Mecca, Coastal’s VP, Communication, “Staying on top as a leading local employer means constantly raising the bar of what it means to be great. In the past 12 months, Coastal absorbed the increase to employee medical premiums, increased our company minimum wage, and continued making strides toward being a more inclusive workplace.”

Coastal and other honorees are featured in the Business Journal's Aug. 26 Best Places to Work special edition.
