NCUA ranked a “best place to work” for Hispanics, African-Americans
ALEXANDRIA, VA (December 20, 2013) —
The National Credit Union Administration continues to be a “Best Place to Work” in the federal government according to rankings released by the Partnership for Public Service.
“Since becoming Chairman, my goal has been to make NCUA an employer of choice,” NCUA Board Chairman Debbie Matz said. “Our Employee Viewpoint Survey results have shown a steady increase towards this goal, reaching our highest ranking in 2012 as sixth of 22 mid-sized agencies. In 2013, our overall ranking dropped slightly, but in critical areas like strategic management, effective leadership and teamwork, NCUA remains strong.”
NCUA is ranked first with Hispanic and African-American employees among mid-sized federal agencies, and third among veterans. The agency ranked sixth or better in several key areas, including effective leadership, strategic management, teamwork and employee training and development.
The agency saw its biggest decrease in employee satisfaction with pay, where it ranked last for mid-sized agencies.
“Satisfaction with employee pay was clearly a major reason for our overall decline in the 2013 ranks. However, we have now adopted a much-needed pay increase for 2014,” Matz said. “NCUA’s employees are our greatest asset, and I remain committed to listening to employee feedback and making changes that will continue to improve the working environment for everyone.”
Nearly 376,000 federal workers participated in the U.S. Office of Personnel Management’s Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey used by the Partnership for Public Service to compile the Best Places to Work in the Federal Government rankings. This is the eighth edition of the Best Places to Work rankings; the first was produced in 2003.

NCUA is the independent federal agency created by the U.S. Congress to regulate, charter and supervise federal credit unions. With the backing of the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government, NCUA operates and manages the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, insuring the deposits of more than 95 million account holders in all federal credit unions and the overwhelming majority of state-chartered credit unions.
