2017 Best Employers in North Carolina


On Monday, Coastal Credit Union was recognized as one of the 2017 Best Employers in North Carolina by Business North Carolina.  The ranking is featured in the May issue of the magazine.

The magazine worked with the Best Companies Group and surveyed employers on everything from hiring practices and benefits to employee recognition and workday stress relief. As a result, Coastal was selected as one of the top 10 large employers (250 or more employees) in the state. Reasons cited include a generous benefits package, casual work environment, and a commitment to employee wellness.

“We know that we can’t take good care of our membership unless we also take good care of our staff,” said Chuck Purvis, Coastal’s President and CEO.  “I’m honored to see Coastal once again being recognized for our ongoing commitment to helping employees succeed, so they can in turn help others.”

This is another in a string of honors that the credit union has earned recently.  Other notable awards include: 

  • Triangle Business Journal - 2016 Best Places to Work
  • Credit Union Journal - 2016 Best Credit Unions to Work For
  • 2016 Triangle’s Healthiest Employers
