Workforce Success Story Submitted By:
Northeast Michigan Consortium Michigan Works!

Straits Area Federal Credit Union

Workforce Challenge

For nearly 65 years, the Straits Area Federal Credit Union (SAFCU) has been committed to making northern Michigan more prosperous. They care deeply about the communities of Cheboygan County and work hard to make a better future a reality for everyone. SAFCU recently hired 2 full-time service representatives for their 3 locations, and due to rapid growth, they were in need of even more staff. Since they are currently in the process of constructing a new building, they didn’t have interview space available.

Workforce Solution

Michigan Works! helped promote the job openings through advertisements. They also coordinated a job fair at the office, which included the use of the computer lab and conference room for two days.

Outcomes & Benefits

Approximately 30 people showed up for the job fair and another 30-40 people submitted applications. SAFCU narrowed down the applications and conducted second round interviews at Michigan Works!. From the career fair, they were able to hire 2 full-time Full Service Representatives. SAFCU said, "When we first contacted Niki at the Michigan Works! office, we were not aware of the services provided, such as the available space and help with advertising. We would definitely use them as a resource again."
