1st Financial Federal Credit Union Has Been Named a
"Winning Workplace" in St. Louis

St Louis, MO - 1st Financial Federal Credit Union, a top ten credit union in the St. Louis area, has recently been named one of nine "Winning Workplaces" by Small Business Monthly.

The editors of Small Business Monthly used a variety of criteria to choose the Top Winning Workplaces with a goal of locating the companies in St. Louis that are creating the best workplace cultures.
As stated by the publication "Winning workplaces are not only the best places to work in St. Louis, but businesses that have created a winning culture for employees, owners and the future of the company. Businesses where employees are not only happy, but the culture helps foster personal and business growth."

Editors of Small Business Monthly specifically searched for organizations with leaders who make their employees feel like winners, even when times are tough, as well as companies that find a way to reduce office politics, support employees and increase employee retention.

Carol Minges, interim CEO of 1st Financial Federal Credit Union recently stated "We have a list of promises that is at the core of all we do. Our employees take the promises to heart and work hard to make sure they are kept. The promises reflect our passion for service, listening, being consultants, acting with integrity, taking ownership of requests, and making decisions that benefit all of our members". She went on to say, "We are so honored to have been chosen for this title. Our employees are the heart of what we do every day and they deserve to be recognized for making 1st Financial one of the best workplaces in St. Louis".
