VIENNA, Va. (April 12, 2021) – Today Navy Federal Credit Union was named, for the 10th year in a row, one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For® by Great Place to Work® and Fortune. Navy Federal has received this award 11 years total, and remains the only credit union on the list.

"We have a strong culture of service at Navy Federal, and we know it starts with how we treat our team members," said Mary McDuffie, president/CEO of Navy Federal. “During this past year, we had to lean on one another more than ever, which only strengthened our culture.”

In awarding Navy Federal, Fortune noted that:

  • 96% of employees consider the employee benefits offered to be special and unique.
  • 95% of Navy Federal employees are proud to tell others where they work.
  • 94% of employees feel good about the ways Navy Federal contributes to the community.
  • 91% of employees feel treated as an equal employee, regardless of position level.

Rankings are based on employee surveys. However, this year’s methodology represents a change in response to the unique circumstances of 2020 – with 60% of each company’s score based on confidential employee feedback and the remaining 40% based on the programs each company said they created to support their people and communities in response to the pandemic. 

During this past year, we had to lean on one another more than ever, which only strengthened our culture.
