Virginia Beach, VA (April 24, 2024) — Chartway Credit Union has received the 2024 Top Workplaces Culture Excellence award for Innovation, Work-life Flexibility, Compensation & Benefits, Leadership, Purpose & Values. The Top Workplaces program by Energage—an organization that develops solutions to build and brand Top Workplaces—has a 17-year history of surveying and celebrating people-first organizations nationally and across 60 regional markets.

"We are tremendously proud of awards like this, but what gives them true meaning are the team members who take the time to share their thoughts,” said Rebecca Riordan, chief people and culture officer at Chartway Credit Union. “Our teams do the work daily to serve our members and communities, and we appreciate the candid feedback they share in these surveys about our progress. That kind of truth and dedication to our organization gives awards like this a purpose. Thank you to Energage, and a big thanks to our team members for everything they do.”

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That's something to be proud of. In today's market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That's paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”
