Northwest Farm Credit Services Named 2018 Gallup Great Workplace Award Winner

SPOKANE, Wash. (April 25, 2018) – Northwest Farm Credit Services is proud to announce that it has received the 2018 Gallup Great Workplace Award. The award was created to recognize organizations for their extraordinary ability to create engaged workplace cultures that drive business outcomes. 

Northwest FCS is a leading financial cooperative that supports agriculture and rural communities with reliable, consistent credit and financial services. The company serves customers through 44 branch offices located throughout the Northwest and its corporate headquarters office in Spokane.

“The team at Northwest FCS has been honored for the second year in a row with the Gallup Great Workplace Award,” said Phil DiPofi, Northwest FCS President and CEO. “I am proud of our employees and their collective effort to develop a unique and special culture of engagement and service to our customers and rural communities.”

Northwest FCS joins an elite group of 39 organizations from around the world that average 14 engaged employees for every one actively disengaged employee, which is nearly seven times the rate in the U.S. and more than 15 times the rate for workforces globally.

Gallup’s scientific research links employee engagement to nine integral performance outcomes: customer satisfaction, profitability, productivity, turnover, employee safety incidents, shrinkage, absenteeism and quality. 

A panel of Gallup workplace experts evaluates applicants and assesses them against criteria established by the most comprehensive workplace study conducted.
