Advancial Federal Credit Union has been named 9th on the list of Best Companies to Work for in Texas in the Medium Employer Category (100-499 U.S. employees).
“We’re exceptionally pleased with this year’s results in the Best Companies survey,” said Tara Weaver, Advancial’s Assistant Vice President of Human Resources. “Advancial saw a substantial jump from last year’s ranking of 29th place to this year’s ranking of 9th and we think that reflects our continuing effort to recruit the best financial services industry talent and treat them like family instead of like numbers.”
The Best Companies to Work for in Texas program is comprised of two parts: the Employer Benefits & Policies Questionnaire and the Employee Engagement & Satisfaction Survey. The Employer Benefits and Policies Questionnaire captures important information regarding company policies, practices and demographics. The Employee Engagement & Satisfaction Survey asks employees to respond to more than 70 statements on a five point agreement scale. This portion also includes two open-ended questions and seven demographic questions.
Advancial placed high on this list because of its nearly unmatched benefits, including excellent health insurance provided at low cost to employees and their families, an 8% 401(k) contribution and paid family leave that allows employees time off to care for children, spouses and parents.
The credit union also encourages all employees to get out from behind their desks in a variety of ways. Advancial purchased a Florida beach house for employees to use on vacation, they offer paid time to volunteer in the community, and the financial institution takes all employees to “Celebrate Advancial,” a yearly company getaway.
