Who are the top credit unions in assets per employee?


The assets per employee ratio reflects the amount of assets a credit union holds per each full-time employee. The metric is an effective measure of productivity as credit unions derive the bulk of their incomes from their assets. According to Callahan & Associates’ 2014 Directory, credit unions nationwide hold an average of $4.3 million in assets per one full time employee as of June 2013, up from $4.2 million from a year prior.  The annual asset growth outpaced the growth in the number of full-time employees over the past year.

Merck Employees ($1.9B, Rahway, NJ) leads the way in assets per full-time employee as of second quarter 2013, with 26 full-time employees each managing $72.0 million in assets on average. This is nearly double the number reported by NCPD ($661.8M, Plainview, NY), which has the second-highest assets per full-time employee ratio among credit unions over $20 million in assets. Star One ($6.4B, Sunnyvale, CA) rounded out the top three with $37.6 million assets per full-time employee in the same quarter.
