Out of the thousands of employers in Houston, First Service Credit Union is one of the top 100 places to work, according to the Houston Chronicle’s 2015 Top Workplaces employee survey.
For the third consecutive year, First Service was named one of the top 100, ranking 20th out of the top 50 midsize employers in Houston.
More than 260 companies were nominated for the prestigious award, which recognizes the best places to work in Houston, the nation’s fourth largest city, with a population exceeding six million.
First Service was selected through an employee survey conducted by Workplace Dynamics, which then identified the Top 100 companies. First Service was selected based on survey results that ranked the credit union on its executive leadership, opportunities for professional advancement, work conditions, benefits, and workplace flexibility.
The top 100 awards are given in three categories: large companies with 500 or more local employees, midsize companies with 150 to 499 employees, and small companies with 50 to 149 employees. First Service has 171 employees and 13 branches throughout the Houston area.
David Bleazard, CEO of First Service Credit Union, said that surveys and outside recognition just validate what he has always known, that the credit union is a great place to work.
“I am privileged to work with the best group of people in Houston,” he said. “They come to work every day dedicated to making a difference in our members’ lives, which is what working at First Service is all about.”
