Coastal Credit Union

RALEIGH, N.C. (August 4, 2022 ) – Business North Carolina magazine has announced that  Coastal Credit Union  has been named one of its 2022 North Carolina Best Employers. Specifically, Coastal earned a place in the large company division. This is the sixth year in a row that Coastal has been on the list.

“A driving force behind North Carolina’s growth is the abundance of great employers who attract people here,” said Chuck Purvis, Coastal’s President & CEO. “It certainly means a lot for Coastal to consistently be identified as being among the best of those companies. We make every effort to put our employees first, because then we know they’ll put our members first.”

To determine winners, Business North Carolina partnered with marketing research firm, DataJoe, who conducts Best Employer campaigns on behalf of publishers across the nation. Employee surveys were distributed to all companies that applied, covering issues such as organization health, engagement, leadership, work – life balance, training, pay, benefits, and corporate social responsibility. Using a proprietary algorithm, surveys were analyzed to determine the winning companies.

“We take great satisfaction from identifying and celebrating workplace excellence and giving businesses the tools to analyze and improve workplace satisfaction.” said Johnny Levy, president of DataJoe.

“Our Best Employers Program is tremendously important to our magazine. We know that those who are honored contribute greatly to North Carolina and our economy,” said Ben Kinney, publisher of Business North Carolina. “The participation in this program continues to grow.”

An awards gala will conclude this year’s program on Thursday, October 20th at Grandover Resort in Greensboro.
