WEST JORDAN, UT -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- Credit Union National Association (CUNA) HR/TD Council recently honored Mountain America Credit Union with an Excellence Award for its outstanding HR/training and development achievements.
Mountain America's entry, Learning Through Storytelling, in the HR/TD Management Practices category, appeals to Gen Y trainees. Mountain America created storytelling videos to engage learners. The internally-produced videos help trainees master challenging concepts they can take from the classroom to the workplace.
"This is a great recognition for our team," says Suzanne Oliver, senior vice president of Educational Services and Governmental Affairs for Mountain America. "Our team has worked hard to develop creative training programs, which help our employees better understand concepts that have been difficult in the past. It helps all of us have a greater appreciation for what we do for our members."
CUNA HR/TD Council is a national network comprised of over 800 credit union human resource and training & development professionals. Awards are given in each of three categories, including Employee Engagement, HR/TD Management Practices and HR/TD Strategic Leadership.
"The HR/TD Council Excellence Award recognizes and honors credit unions that exemplify excellence in HR and training & development in the credit union industry," says Jennifer Huggard, chair of the Awards Committee for the CUNA HR/TD Council. "These awards are important to our council because it allows us to celebrate what our peers are accomplishing and learning from it."
