“Our annual ranking recognizes credit unions that are committed to investing in job satisfaction, career development and personal growth,” said Richard Melville, group editorial director at SourceMedia, the parent company of Credit Union Journal. “Every one of the credit unions on this list should be proud of their accomplishment.”

Determining the Best Credit Unions to Work For involved a two-step process. The first step consisted of evaluating each participating credit union’s workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of employee surveys aimed at assessing the experiences and attitudes of individual employees with respect to their workplace. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the best credit unions and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process and also analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final ranking.
