Leaders Credit Union Named Number One Credit Union to Work for in Tennessee

JACKSON, TN (August 30, 2023)- Leaders Credit Union, a member-owned financial cooperative, was named the number one credit union to work for in Tennessee and ranked number 11 in the nation by American Banker.

For the fifth year in a row, Leaders Credit Union was named one of the best credit unions to work for in the nation. Seventy credit unions were honored in this year’s top rankings, ranging from 22 employees to 3,258.

Leaders serves West Tennessee with its 190 employees in Jackson, Milan, Union City, Dyersburg, and Memphis. They have many benefits offered to their employees, one of them being Leaders University, where staff can receive training and development to gain skills from other areas outside their expertise, in many cases taught by subject matter experts within Leaders. Leaders’ benefits package and company culture play a significant role in the success of the 66-year-old company. In addition to standard employee benefits, Leaders offers four weeks of paid parental leave after the birth or adoption of a child.

“Being named one of the best credit unions to work for in the country for the fifth year in a row is such an honor.  What makes Leaders stand out is the passion and advocacy of our team members,” Erin Mitchell, Vice President of Human Resources at Leaders Credit Union said. “We are all working towards the same goal of assisting our membership through their financial journey and having a good time doing it. That is what Leaders is all about!”

Leaders wants to provide members with the tools and guidance they need in their financial journey, and that begins with the training and development of its employees, who are called financial champions. The mission of Leaders is to “power your passion and make lives better.”

Each credit union that made the list was selected through two different questionnaires. One examined employee satisfaction through anonymous surveys, and the institution must score at least 40% participation rate to qualify. The second survey evaluated the benefits and policies of the credit union.

“At Leaders, the service we provide for our members begins with our Financial Champions. We strive to take care of our employees so that together, we can serve our members and help them achieve their financial goals. It is an honor to be named as one of the top credit union workplaces in the nation,” Todd Swims, president and CEO of Leaders Credit Union said.
