From John: More Talent Development

Optimize and optimization or more with less concept as a butterfly letting go of wings while taking off like a rocket as a business metaphor for minimalism and simplify with 3D illustration elements

2019 CUES memberships offer ‘more’ of everything.

At CUES, we’re devoted to walking the walk of developing talent. That means looking at our resources and time and figuring out ways for each member of the CUES team to do more professional development. After all, people are every organization’s most important asset.

I’m sure you’ve experienced this, too. As you work to fight fraud, stay compliant, develop new products and provide outstanding membership service, you most likely find you have to squeeze in talent development.

Our new 2019 memberships are designed to help you address this issue by bringing you more—more benefits, more resources, more value for more of your team, both staff and board members. The net effect is more talent development opportunities.

  • More talent development means your credit union will be in a better position to hire and retain top talent (and build bench strength) during the current talent shortage. 
  • More talent development means you’re more likely to have highly engaged employees and board members. Research (here’s one example) consistently finds that talent development increases team members’ enthusiasm about their jobs—and the likelihood that they’ll be high performers.
  • More talent development increases the likelihood that your credit union will perform at a high level. The 2018 DDI Global Leadership Forecast found organizations that focus on cultivating high potential staff members outside of the senior leader levels are 4.2 times more likely to outperform organizations that do not follow this practice. It stands to reason that the best performing organizations will be in the best position to serve members well, too.

In all, our new membership structure supports more learning at your organization. Our new group memberships—Unlimited and Unlimited+—offer a slate of benefits to every staff member and director you decide to include in the membership for one flat rate. More value!

Are you ready to do more with developing your talent in 2019?
