Riverdale, Utah – America First Credit Union, a not-for-profit, member-owned financial institution servicing Utah and Nevada, has been named one of the 2015 Best Credit Unions to Work For. Credit Union Journal partnered with Best Companies Group to identify companies that have excelled in creating quality workplaces for employees.

This survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best credit unions. The list is made up of 45 credit unions. The full Best Credit Unions to Work For list was featured in the September issue of Credit Union Journal and is available online at CUJournal.com.

“It’s an honor for America First to receive this accolade from the Credit Union Journal,” said America First Credit Union Senior Vice President of Human Resources, G. Kent Streuling. “We embody the industry ethos of people helping people and our employees are very much a part of that, as I’ve experienced first-hand with the many programs, outings and experiences offered. We also place great value on continuing education, working to help our employees grow within the credit union.”

To be considered for participation, credit unions had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

–        Have at least 25 employees working in the U.S.

–        Be in business a minimum of one year

–        Be in one of the following categories based upon asset size: Over $1 billion, $500M-$1B, $200M-$500M or Under $200M

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 – percent 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 – percent 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.
