Our culture

At Alternatives, we have a culture of leading with our values. We have diverse employees whose perspectives, experiences and knowledge help the Credit Union meet its mission and vision. A casual dress work environment, a living wage, great benefits, participatory decision-making structures, opportunities for advancement, and access to financial education and expertise, all help to create a supportive work environment. Some of us have worked here for over thirty years, some ten or twenty, and some started this year.
