United FCU Ranked #4 on List of Best Places to Work
Tuesday, April 14, 2015 6:50 AM

What is it like to be recognized as one of the best places to work in an entire state? "Amazing" is the word used by United Federal Credit Union Market Vice President Noel Sanger.

The Best Places to Work in Arkansas list is compiled annually by Arkansas Business in partnership with Best Companies Group. The mission of Best Companies Group is to identify and recognize places of employment that are leading the way in defining the employee experience of the 21st century.

UFCU, based in Fort Smith, Arkansas, learned last summer that it made the top 12 list, but only recently did the credit union find out it earned the number four spot.

"We are extremely proud to learn that we ranked so close to the top of the list," said Sanger. "Our employees are fantastic, and they deserve credit for making this an outstanding place to work."

"The designation also shows the strength of our leadership," said UFCU President/CEO Gary Easterling. "Noel is an outstanding mentor and coach. He makes sure his employees have what they need to succeed.

Best Companies Group determines the rankings based on 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.
