United Named in 2019 “20 Best Places to Work” in Southwest Michigan

ST. JOSEPH, Mich. – United Federal Credit Union (United) was named in the 2019 “20 Best Places to Work” in southwest Michigan during the inaugural Moody on the Market contest—the only financial institution to make the list. The recognition program sought to identify 20 southwest Michigan businesses with the best morale making a difference in the community.

Moody on the Market cited compelling stories from United’s past year, which influenced their decision to select United for this award.

These stories included how the United team itself organized their annual Pay it Forward program to transform an employee holiday breakfast into a give-back opportunity to help the less fortunate within various local communities.

In addition to this, United was recognized for having a proactive, service-oriented approach to Members, employees, and the community at large. The credit union’s first-rate benefits package—including health, retirement, paid time off and volunteer time off, education reimbursements, wellness reimbursements, and an annual bonus—plus a competitive salary makes it easy for employees to focus on serving Members and one another.

“United is proud to be named one of the 20 Best Places to Work in southwest Michigan. Each employee brings a positive attitude and passion to help Members to work every day,” said United’s President/CEO Terry O’Rourke. “This might be a regional honor, but it takes a full team effort to make United the best we can be.”
