CUs recognized in report on whos hiring
WACO, Texas (2/9/09)--Credit unions have been recognized as a growing sector of the U.S. economy that is hiring, according to Profiles International, a firm that specializes in employment evaluation and human resource management assessment tools. Credit unions are expanding, while traditional financial institutions continue to downsize their work forces, Profiles International said. The company is continuing to experience demand for personnel evaluations and assessments from clients such as credit unions that are looking to hire, Profiles International noted (PR NewsWire Feb. 6). Although the U.S. economy has not yet started its recovery, preemptive layoffs would actually hurt many companies in the long-term, said Jim Sirbasku, co-founder and CEO of Profiles International. “A strong staff and viable work force is the greatest asset a company can have because it's the biggest investment a company will ever make,” he explained. “Releasing talented workers in anticipation of an uncertain economic future is often a costly mistake that can mortgage a company’s future. It is far better that companies put off capital investments, which can always be made when the economic conditions strengthen,” Sirbasku added.
