Veterans United Named to Best Workplaces in Texas

January 24, 2017

IRVING, TEXAS Veterans United Home Loans announced today it was recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in Texas by Great Place to Work® and Fortune Magazine. The full-service, national VA lender has a corporate office in Irving and branch offices in San Antonio and Austin. Veterans United comes in at No. 25 on the list, which is based on employees' assessment of their organizations' culture, professional development, leadership credibility and other factors.

At Veterans United we live by our values in that we strive to enhance lives each and every day, said Dr. Amanda Andrade, chief people officer at Veterans United. This starts with our employees who create such a strong sense of camaraderie with each other and the Veterans we serve. Knowing our Texas teams feel friendship, support and trust when they come through our doors is a direct reflection on the way they work together to help our service members secure homeownership.

Among more than 100,000 people surveyed at businesses operating in Texas, those at the Best Workplaces gave their companies high marks for creating warm, friendly environments where colleagues truly care about each other and their communities. The winning organizations also out-performed their peers on measures of pride, work-life balance and the fairness of their compensation.

Texans have a reputation for out sized pride in their state. At the Best Workplaces in Texas, they're also proud of the work they do for businesses that offer high levels of camaraderie and confidence in their leaders, said Kim Peters, Executive Vice President at Great Place to Work®.
