Magazine: CFCU makes top 100 list

It’s becoming a habit. Chetco Federal Credit Union has been named by Oregon Business magazine as one of The 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon for the third year in a row.

In writing about the 100 Best Companies of 2010, Oregon Business editor Robin Doussard said, “When the going gets tough, The Best get going,” and her final editorial word was, “Especially in hard times, being a great place to work helps your bottom line. It gives you a competitive edge, keeps the best people with you, and in turn those employees give back that heart and soul many times over.”

An inside article noted, “It might not have been the best year for business, with a bad economy hanging on, but you wouldn’t know it by how our 2010 winners treated their employees. ... It’s about inspired leadership, collaboration and caring, along with a healthy dose of fun.”

Stanley J. Baron, president and chief executive officer of the credit union, said, “It’s a great honor to be rated by our employees as one of the best 100 companies to work for. Our success is due to our employees. They are all successful because of their likability.”

Brookings CFCU branch manager Gaylin Beckley, who has worked for the credit union for 10 years, received the 2010 Readers Choice award for Best Boss (See special section inside this issue).

“I love my job,” Beckley said. “I’m one of the luckiest people in the world to get up and come to work with wonderful people. I feel it’s a privilege to work with great people.”

When asked about the major problems being experienced by other financial institutions, Baron said, “One of the reasons we didn’t suffer so badly is because we had no toxic assets. We had no sub-prime mortgages.”

Baron noted, “Everyone is suffering to some degree. We try to provide as much forbearance as we are permitted to provide, and the only reason why I’m here is to serve. We are in excellent condition, but there’s no way to predict the future.”

Chetco Federal Credit Union is a community chartered credit union, dedicated to serving members in the communities of Coos and Curry counties in Oregon and Del Norte County in California, and has provided 52 years of service to more than 30,000 members.

  • Asian stocks near 2015 lows on China economy worry, dollar strong
    An index of Asian shares outside Japan fell close to this year's lows thanks to a deepening selloff in commodities and concerns over slowing growth in China, while the dollar held its ground against a basket of currencies. China's factory activity shrank more than initially estimated in July, contracting by the most in two years as new orders fell, according to a private survey that dashed hopes that the economy may be steadying. "We believe the stock market panic in early July chilled economic activity, which is what the manufacturing PMIs picked up," ING economist Tim Condon said in a research note ahead of the Caixin PMI release.
  • Greeks brace for stock market carnage after five-week shutdown
    Greece will take another step away from full-on crisis mode on Monday by opening its stock market for the first time in five weeks, although immediate heavy losses are expected. Trading on the Athens bourse was suspended in late June as part of capital controls imposed to stem a debilitating outflow of euros that threatened to collapse Greece's banks and hurl the indebted country out of the euro zone. Since then, Athens has agreed a framework bailout plan with its European Union partners in exchange for stringent reforms and budget austerity.
  • China July factory activity shrinks most in two years: Caixin PMI
    China's factory activity shrank more than initially estimated in July, contracting by the most in two years as new orders fell and dashing hopes that the world's second-largest economy may be steadying, a private survey showed on Monday. The report followed a downbeat official survey on Saturday which showed growth at manufacturing firms unexpectedly stalled, reinforcing views that the cooling economy needs more stimulus even as it faces fresh risks from a stock market slump. Fears of a full-blown market crash have added a new sense of urgency for policymakers in Beijing, with many analysts expecting more support measures to be rolled out within weeks.
