ESL Federal Credit Union is pleased to announce its selection as a Best Workplace in Financial Services and Insurance by Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine.

To determine the Best Workplaces in Financial Services & Insurance™ list, Great Place to Work measures and benchmarks approximately 200,000 employee survey responses from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies in the financial services and insurance industry.

Our selection as a Great Place to Work is the result of the dedicated work of our employees who are committed to providing a superior customer experience to our members everyday,” said President and CEO Faheem Masood. “We are honored to be on this list, as our employees are the vital piece in providing the guidance and solutions that help our members throughout Greater Rochester achieve their financial goals.”

This marks the second Great Place to Work list ESL had made in 2023. Back in June, ESL was selected as a Great Place to Work in New York State.
