Peter Walker is a 33-year-old Regional Branch Services Manager with OSU Federal Credit Union ($770M) in Corvallis, Oregon, USA.
Synopsis: In 2003, OSU Federal and its board of directors began laying the groundwork for a unique way to recognize excellence within the credit union. Since the initial brainstorming sessions nearly ten years ago, I have been actively involved in developing and championing the APEX Awards. APEX stands for: "Achieving Performance Excellence." APEX is a unique way of recognizing unsurpassed performance that goes above and beyond day-to-day job responsibilities. Employees nominate branches, departments and individual co-workers for these awards, and we work hard to make the process fun and impactful throughout the year. OSU Federal’s volunteer board of directors chooses the final winner for each category: Innovation, Outstanding Department, Individual Internal Service, Community Contribution, Outstanding Member Solution, and the FUN Award! Awards are presented every January at our prestigious annual banquet: the Winter Gala.
I am passionate about having fun and recognizing excellence in the workplace. If you select me to go forward in this competition, I’ll look forward to telling you more about how we’ve made APEX such a special program, and how that directly impacts the way we take care of our member owners!
