FAIRWINDS Credit Union is the largest locally-based and operated financial institution in Central Florida, but we're a tight-knit group. We believe in helping our members achieve financial freedom, getting them from wherever they are, to where they'd like to be financially. And our number one resource on the road to making that happen is our crew.
Our crewmembers are our driving force, so we make it a priority to create an engaging, productive, and well-balanced work environment we feel great working in each day. Our people are our most valuable asset and we take pride in the way we take care of each person on our team - in our 66 years, we've never laid an employee off.
Each day, we work to align everything our credit union does to best benefit our crew's mind, body and wallet.
We're a bright bunch, but even smart cookies have room to grow. We offer tuition reimbursement for crewmembers looking to expand their knowledge with relevant courses or a degree.
We paid $60,519 in education assistance for our crew in 2016.
We take care of business and our crewmembers. FAIRWINDS lets you trade unused sick leave for personal health and wellness purchases, like a new bike to explore the city on! Time and time again, we've proven being healthy and feeling great is the best fuel for driving our commitment to being our members' dedicated financial partner.
Our crew traded in 14,884 sick leave hours in 2016.
From zero percent financing offers to matching contributions on 401(k) investments, we're not only on the lookout for our members' financial well-being, we're working towards brighter futures for our crew, too.
We matched over $1,300,000 in crewmember 401(k) contributions in 2016.
