4. Suncoast Makes it a Priority to Give Back

People helping people is at the heart of the credit union philosophy. Our team is an active part of our local communities, from volunteering to raising money or needed supplies for causes that are near and dear to our hearts.

Suncoast makes it easy for employees to give back. We have an online portal for employees to browse through and sign up for volunteer opportunities. Every October, we host our annual Pay It Forward Day where our employees go out into the community and make a difference. And Suncoast even offers employees paid time off to go out and give back!

5. Suncoast Supports Employees’ Needs

Suncoast is more than just a great place to work. What makes our company such a special organization to be a part of is how much Suncoast cares about each and every person on our staff.

Even during challenging times, our Suncoast culture strives to ensure employees always feel supported and have a healthy work-life balance. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Suncoast employees got the tools needed to continue to safely perform their work. Moreover, employees who had children at home during school and daycare closings were able to work with their managers to find solutions to make sure that their families’ needs and work life could coexist.

Suncoast has established an Employee Resource Center which leverages the power and generosity of our Suncoast family to provide resources to fellow team members in need.  This includes access to mental health wellness, plus an in-house food bank and financial education opportunities.

At Suncoast, we value our team. In order to give the very best to our members, we need employees who love to come to work each day. Knowing that we are supported and appreciated makes it easy for the Suncoast team to deliver our very best.
