Champion Credit Union was recently named as one of the best employers in North Carolina for 2021, its fourth year in a row on the list.

This program was created by Business North Carolina and Best Companies Group to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in North Carolina who are benefiting the economy, workforce, and businesses in the state of North Carolina.

The list is made up of 56 companies. Of the 56, Champion Credit Union, Johnson Price Sprinkle PA, Zoe Dental, Pine Gate Renewables and Gia Herbs were the WNC-based companies to be named. Statewide, Champion is one of two credit unions recognized this year.

Companies from North Carolina entered the two-part survey process to determine the 2021 Best Employers.

The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience.

The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.
