Three Credit Unions Top Idaho’s 2021 Best Places to Work List

It’s no secret credit unions are great financial services partners, but they’re also fantastic places to work. Year after year, they rank high on lists of the best workplaces in the country.

This year, credit unions once again topped the annual Best Places to Work in Idaho ranking.

Idaho Central Credit Union took first place in the “macro” category, and East Idaho Credit Union, based in Idaho Falls, was the number one employer in the “large” category. Mountain America Credit Union, which is headquartered in Utah but has branches across the Gem State, also scored in the top five as a large employer.

“ICCU is honored to be named the Best Place to Work in Idaho,” said Kent Oram, President and CEO. “When we focus our energy and efforts on our purpose of helping members achieve financial success, we make a difference. We are the Best Place to Work in Idaho because we have fun, we have energy, and we care about each other.”

All three credit unions have been recognized in the top ten Best Places to Work for the last several years, often outranking other large companies like T-Mobile and Intuit.

“What an honor to be recognized for the culture we have and the good work we do,” said East Idaho Credit Union President and CEO, Dan Thurman. “We truly believe that when our employees are happy they take better care of our members and the communities we serve. I truly love our employees and team and I love the communities we serve.”

Mountain America President and CEO, Sterling Nielsen, said the credit union is honored to have its Idaho employees rate it as a top workplace for the past decade.

“We pride ourselves on creating a supportive and rewarding environment where employees can grow and thrive while doing what they do best: serving members.”

Honorees of the Best Places to Work in Idaho are determined by their employees’ satisfaction and feedback. They’re chosen in each of the five size categories based on workforce size: micro (10 to 19 employees), small (20 to 49), medium (50 to 99), large (100 to 249), and macro (250 or up).
