VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., – Chartway Federal Credit Union has transformed its lunchroom into a fun haven for staffers. The credit union's recent lunchroom renovation trades in its standard stuffy corporate lunchroom for a `50s-style diner complete with plush blue booths, red stools and a checkered floor. "This is a way to remind our employees that it's important to take time out to have fun," said Chartway FCU President/CEO Ronald L. Burniske. "We've outfitted our retro diner to have the feel of the 1950s, when the seeds for Chartway were planted. Yet, plenty of modern touches, from our four flat-screen HDTVs and a PlayStation game console to a large stainless steel refrigerator, were added to make our employees feel at home." According to Burniske, the move is just another way to reinforce how much the credit union values its employees. "We're in the business of making dreams possible and bettering our members' lives," Burniske said. "That goes double for our employees-our No. 1 asset. Our renovation not only enhances where we come to work every day, but also captures the essence of our corporate culture here at Chartway."
