7 17 Credit Union Named a NorthCoast 99 Award Winner

7 17 Credit Union Among Best Workplaces in Northeast Ohio

WARREN, OH – 7 17 Credit Union is proud to be recognized as one of 99 great Ohio workplaces for top talent. For the second consecutive year, 7 17 has been named a 2023 Northcoast 99 award winner by the Employers Resource Council, which chooses 99 Northeast Ohio organizations for building and maintaining exceptional workplaces through policies, practices, and benefits that attract and retain top performing talent.

“We are beyond honored to have earned this award once again,” said Gary Soukenik, President and CEO of 7 17 Credit Union. “We have great pride in our employees and I know for a fact that our success is directly related to our 7 17 family and the exceptional service our staff gives to our members. We could not give members the respect they deserve without those very employees who constantly look for ways to do their jobs more efficiently, compassionately, and with integrity.”

Northcoast 99 winners participated in a rigorous application process and were ranked on how they address top-performer attraction, development, and retention in the areas of organizational strategy, policies, and benefits; talent attraction, acquisition, and onboarding; employee well-being; employee engagement and talent development; total rewards; and diversity, equity, and inclusion.

NorthCoast 99 covers a 22-county region of Northeast Ohio. 7 17 was one of only two companies in the Mahoning Valley to earn the distinction.

This honor comes on the heels of other humbling awards – including 7 17 Credit Union being ranked a top 100 Credit Union in the United States and number one in Ohio by S&P Global Market Insights for the second year in a row. Forbes also recently named 7 17 to their list of Best-In-State Credit Unions.

7 17 Credit Union is the largest credit union in Northeast Ohio with 13 branch locations and 114,000 members. Anyone living or working in Trumbull, Mahoning, Columbiana, Portage, Stark or Summit Counties is eligible to open accounts with 7 17.
