UFCU Named a 2022 Best Workplace for Working Parents

Austin, TEXAS, February 7, 2022 —UFCU, Austin’s largest locally owned financial institution, has earned recognition for being a “Best Workplace for Working Parents®,” a designation that is given annually by Early Matters Greater Austin (EMGA) to Austin-area organizations that provide outstanding support for working parents through family-friendly policies and practices.

UFCU was recognized with this designation in 2021 as well. The Member-owned credit union provides its employees with comprehensive medical, dental, vision and prescription coverage for employees, their children, and their spouse or domestic partner. Their health savings account matching program is in the top 20% of employers in the country. They offer paid parental leave, a flexible workplace program that allows many working parents to work at least 50% of their time remotely, and extend that philosophy to parents of “fur babies” by offering pet insurance.

“We believe that building a strong community starts at home, with our own family of employees,” said VP of human resources and organizational development Rhonda Hall.

“Supporting the work-life balance of working parents and all of our employees is simply the right thing to do; and it also makes good business sense. The compassion and positivity of our employees sets us apart from other institutions—the more we invest in them, the more our Members experience the UFCU difference.”

Beyond its role as an employer, UFCU acts on its commitment to helping families and individuals in Central Texas and Galveston improve their financial well-being. It does this by serving post-secondary education institutions and supporting education, employment, and affordable housing, among other initiatives.
