AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – USA Federal Credit Union has the distinction of being the only credit union to be recognized by The Principal Financial Group as one of the top 10 Best Companies for Employee Financial Security. The program, now in its third year, honors growing businesses that excel in selecting, managing and providing a benefits program that ensures employees’ long-term financial security. Nearly 800 companies were nominated. According to The Principal Vice President Renee Schaaf, 10 Best winners demonstrated innovative ways to provide affordable health care coverage to their employees without sacrificing quality. Rounding out the top 10 list are: American Urological Association Education and Research, Inc.; American Society of Health-System Pharmacists; Clipper Belt Lacer Company; Distilled Spirits Council of the United States, Inc.; ELTECH Systems Corporation; First National Bank of Greencastle; Leupold & Stevens, Inc.; Pharmacists Mutual Insurance Company; and Rathbun Insurance Agency. “The Principal 10 Best winners remind other small businesses that employees are their most valuable resource, and by having a great benefits program they can maximize the value of that resource,” said Schaaf. “Of course, good benefits come at a cost, but these 10 outstanding companies all maintain that by having a good benefits program they actually reduce overall costs to their business by reducing turnover and increasing productivity. That’s why we think they are all great role models for other small and medium sized businesses.”
