Why credit unions might overlook tech training

A core conversion, in particular, is a huge undertaking, and “it can be overwhelming … to put all the training together and know where to start if you don’t have a plan in place and a team to execute that plan.”On a related note, Jen Madden, AVP/talent development at $2.7 billion, 212,000-member Apple Federal Credit Union in Fairfax, Virginia, says other credit unions sometimes overlook training around technology initiatives “when the cost is too high and [they don’t] have the resources in house to create and deliver training themselves.”last_img
