UFCU’s Longest Tenured Employee Reaches 40 Year Milestone
Tuesday, June 21, 2016 6:55 AM

Laurie Thomas

University Federal Credit Union (UFCU) is recognizing employee Laurie Thomas for 40 years of service. Thomas began her career with UFCU on June 21, 1976, working in all areas of the organization from lending to organizational development. She is the first UFCU employee to reach such a milestone.

“People helping people” is the foundation for the relationships Thomas establishes in working with employees and members. As an organizational development representative, Thomas is among the first to greet new employees, warmly welcoming them to the UFCU family. In telling new team members they have joined a great organization, she shares when she was a new employee, everyone could sit around one small table. Employees now number over 600.

Executives and coworkers alike comment on Thomas’ ability to grow and change in her role as UFCU has grown and changed. While in her early years processes were solely paper-based, Thomas now supports the organization with digital information sharing through internal platforms.

Thomas is known in larger credit union circles as a long-time active member of the Austin Chapter of Credit Unions, working to earn the Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility Recognition Award for the Chapter on more than one occasion.

UFCU celebrates Thomas' commitment to the credit union movement and to her exemplification of UFCU’s values. As one senior manager commented, “Her contributions to UFCU values and who we are today cannot be measured by a spreadsheet, but can only be measured by the heart, spirit, and values of University Federal Credit Union.”
