Neighbors FCU named one of Best CUs to Work For

BATON ROUGE, LA (October 7, 2019) — Neighbors was named one of the 2019 Best Credit Unions to Work For by the Credit Union Journal. CU Journal partnered with Best Companies Group to identify companies that have excelled in creating quality workplaces for employees.

Neighbors placed 34 th nationally and 9th among its asset size category. Neighbors made the list in great part due to the efforts of Team Impact. Team Impact is a volunteer group of employees that gather to host events for employees and their families.

Team Impact orchestrated many enjoyable employee activities such as the annual Mardi Gras Ball, Movie Night on the Lawn, Neighbors Friends and Family Day and a variety of fun work days featuring free ice cream, snowballs, popcorn and more.

“It is truly remarkable to be considered one of the best credit unions to work for in the country for the second consecutive year,” Neighbors President and CEO Steve Webb said. “I don’t say this lightly when I call Neighbors a special place. Every employee is considered part of the Neighbors family.”

This list was comprised of two key elements:

  • 25% of the credit union workplace policies, practices and demographics
  • 75% employee survey responses

This survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best credit unions. The 2019 list is made up of 50 credit unions. You can learn more about this list at
