United FCU Named to 2014 Best Places to Work in Arkansas List
Thursday, July 31, 2014 6:50 AM

United FCU has been selected as one of the 2014 Best Places to Work in Arkansas by Arkansas Business in partnership with Best Companies Group. This is the second year of the annual program which recognizes and honors the twelve best employers in Arkansas, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses.

“We are extremely proud of Team United in Arkansas for being recognized in this way,” said Gary Easterling, president/CEO of United FCU.

Best Companies Group conducts a two-part company assessment designed to gather detailed data about each participating company. In part one, the employer completes a questionnaire and in part two, employees of the company complete an employee survey. The workplaces are then ranked based on the combined data.

“The employees in our Arkansas region have truly embraced the spirit of community and the credit union philosophy of people helping people,” said Noel Sanger, UFCU’s Arkansas market vice president. “Whether it is assisting a Member or a fellow co-worker, our teamwork divides the task, but doubles the success.”

To be eligible for consideration, companies must meet the following criteria:

  • Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity
  • Be a publicly or privately held business
  • Have a facility in the state of Arkansas
  • Have a minimum of 15 employees working in the state of Arkansas*
  • Must be in business a minimum of one year

The final rankings of the twelve companies will be unveiled at a special awards ceremony in September, and will also be published in a special September issue of Arkansas Business. More information on the
