Austin, Texas, October 18, 2010 - University Federal Credit Union (UFCU) was recently named one of the Best Companies to Work for in Texas 2011. The awards program was created in 2006 and is a project of TEXAS MONTHLY, the Texas Association of Business (TAB), the Texas State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management (TSC-SHRM) and Best Companies Group.
This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Texas, benefiting the state’s economy, its workforce and businesses. The Best Companies to Work for in Texas 2011 list is made up of 100 companies. UFCU has been named one of the Best Companies to Work for in Texas.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Companies to Work for in Texas.
