AUSTIN – April 12, 2023 — For the third consecutive year, UFCU has received the 2023 Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award, which recognizes organizations that elevate the employee experience and make a difference for employees every day. UFCU is Austin’s largest locally owned financial institution and employs almost 800 people at its headquarters and 23 branches across Central Texas and Galveston County. It is the only company with headquarters in Austin to receive the designation.

The Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award is the most comprehensive workplace study ever conducted, with data on more than 2 million employees in 276 organizations across 54 industries and 96 countries. UFCU's engagement scores ranked in the top 2% of all organizations Gallup surveyed worldwide. Gallup found that UFCU and fellow highly engaged organizations significantly outperform their peers in customer ratings, profitability, productivity, turnover, safety incidents, shrinkage, absenteeism, quality, well-being, and organizational citizenship.
