Security Service Federal Credit Union Named A 2013 National Top Workplace

Security Services Federal Credit UnionSecurity Service Federal Credit Union (SSFCU) employees have voted the organization into a spot in the top 100 American workplaces, as researched by WorkplaceDynamics. Out of 872 organizations reviewed, SSFCU was ranked 95 in the category of companies with more than 1,000 employees.

The National Top Workplaces list was determined solely by feedback gathered through an objective employee survey. The survey was conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, the leading on-demand employee survey provider, in conjunction with 30 leading regional newspapers. The award comes on the heels of the San Antonio Express News’s Top Workplaces 2012 program, which ranked SSFCU in the top ten top large companies in the city for the second year in a row.

The survey uses a proprietary set of 22 questions to rank companies. The survey data showed that employees most want to work at companies with high levels of organizational health. Companies that set a clear direction for their future; execute well; and bring real meaning to work are the healthiest.

“We were honored to be recognized locally and equally honored to have placed nationally, especially when the recognition comes from our own employees,” said Jim Laffoon, president for SSFCU. “They know us inside and out and are the cornerstone of our success. I am proud of the work they do each and every day – in both big and small ways – that sets us apart in the corporate landscape and provides top-notch service to our members.”
