Others have taken notice. Over the last 12 months, Austin’s largest locally owned financial institution was rewarded for its commitment to its employees and recognized for workplace excellence by three separate organizations: the 2021 Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award, Early Matters Greater Austin 2021 Best Place for Working Parents and the Greater Austin Chamber’s 2020 Greater Austin Business Awards.

UFCU’s most recent honor is the Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award — Gallup’s premier recognition for engaged workplace cultures. Only 39 organizations worldwide met the high expectations it takes to receive this honor. The award is presented to organizations that meet rigorous standards of excellence, of which UFCU exceeded.

They consistently demonstrate our shared values on a daily basis, and because of their excellence our Members continue to put their trust in us.
