United FCU Named to Best Places to Work in Arkansas List
Wednesday, August 5, 2015 6:50 AM

United Federal Credit Union in Fort Smith has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Arkansas by Arkansas Business for the second consecutive year. The designation, made in partnership with Best Companies Group, honors the 18 best employers in Arkansas, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce, and businesses.

“We have a strong team in Arkansas and in all of the states where we operate,” said UFCU President/CEO Gary Easterling. “This honor is a testament to the culture we have developed where we put people first—both members and employees.”

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.

“We are extremely proud to learn that we are again among the top designees,” said Arkansas Market Vice President Noel Sanger. “In 2014 we were number four in the final tally. This year, we are hoping to place even higher.”

The final rankings of the 12 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 Best Places to Work in Arkansas program can be found at
