Smart Financial CU Ranked Among Best Companies to Work for in Texas
Tuesday, June 16, 2015 6:55 AM

For the second year in a row, Houston-based Smart Financial Credit Union was named one of the 2015 Best Companies to Work for in Texas. Smart Financial Credit Union is one of 100 companies on this year’s list, which is an annual project created in 2006 by Texas Monthly, the Texas Association of Business (TAB), Texas SHRM and Best Companies Group.

“Smart Financial Credit Union is honored to have been recognized on a statewide-level for the second year in a row,” said Gary Tuma, president and CEO of Smart Financial Credit Union. “This honor would not be possible without the support and dedication of our board of directors, employees, and members.”

Celebrating its 10-year anniversary, the Best Companies to Work For in Texas list is a statewide survey and awards program designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best places of employment in Texas.

After qualifying, companies across the state of Texas are entered into a two-part survey process. The first section of the survey evaluates each nominated company's workplace policies, systems, philosophies, practices, and demographics and is weighted at approximately 25 percent of the total evaluation. The second section consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience, which was weighted at approximately 75 percent of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Texas. They also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings. 

Rankings were categorized as small, medium, or large employers based on the number of U.S. employees. Smart Financial Credit Union ranked 23 out of 32 medium employers (100 – 499 employees).

Smart Financial Credit Union, along with the other Best Companies in Texas, will be profiled in an upcoming special edition of Texas Monthly.
