CHROMEism #24: Make WOW Your Career Goal

When you spend nearly one-third of your life working, shouldn’t it be spent doing something you like?  Something you find meaningful? In a place where you can make a difference? With people you like? It might seem like a tall order, but we don’t think so.
At CHROME, we’re out to revolutionize personal banking. Everything we do is done with one purpose in mind — to “wow” our customers with experiences that make their day a little bit easier, happier. But we want to wow our people, too — the ones who stand shoulder-to-shoulder with us as we knock down all those old-school attitudes about the way banking is supposed to be.
We’re a tight-knit group of like-minded disruptors. Everyone on our team is part rebel, part hero, part magician — doers excited to be at the beginning of something new and exciting.
“We believe in the future of banking and how it’s evolving,” notes one CHROME team member.
Carving a new path isn’t for the faint of heart. It can be risky, but exhilarating and rewarding.
We think punk iconoclast Henry Rollins has the right idea: “One defines oneself by reinvention,” he once said. “To not be like your parents. To not be like your friends. To be yourself. To cut yourself out of stone.”
We agree, Henry. Except, in our case, we’re forged from CHROME — short for chromium (Cr 24). When added to steel, chromium changes it, making the metal even stronger.
CHROME is a change agent, too. We’re more than a credit union, more than a bank. From smart, innovative technology to exceptional service, we create personalized experiences that surprise and delight customers every day. We’re reinventing banking the way Uber, Google, Apple, Starbucks and Zappos changed the consumer landscape with their unique business models. Most importantly, we’re forging a culture that puts people first — including our own.
We’re glad to say the philosophy hasn’t gone unnoticed by the individuals who choose to spend a significant part of their lives achieving meaningful, purpose-driven careers with us.
“I work with people who share the same values,” explains one CHROME-ie. “Here, it's not about you — it's about we.”
“We are making a difference,” adds another. “I’m part of something greater than me. I have the freedom and encouragement to find better ways to do things — anything that makes the banking experience easier for our customers.”
