Maine Credit Union League and Synergent received the "Best Places to Work in Maine" designation for 2016, marking the fourth time in the past five years it has made the list.

Not only are Maine credit unions the best value in financial services, an impressive number are also among "Best Places to Work in Maine" recipients for 2016.  The recently-announced list of "Best Places To Work" in Maine for 2016 features nine credit unions or credit union-related organizations including the Maine Credit Union League and Synergent. 

"What a great honor to be included on the list and to see so many credit unions on the list.  Close to 15% of the 75 companies recognized on the list are credit unions, which highlights the fact that the credit union philosophy extends to the workplace, as well," remarked John Murphy, President of the Maine Credit Union League.

The "Best Places to Work" program is coordinated by the Maine State Council for the Society of Human Resources Management (MESHRM).  2016 marked the 11th year of the program in Maine.  The Top 10 winners in the three employee size categories will be revealed in ranked order at the "Best Places To Work" Awards Banquet on October 4, at the Holiday Inn by the Bay in Portland.

In addition to the Maine Credit Union League and Synergent, the following credit unions made the "Best Places to Work in Maine" list for 2016: Small Employer Category (15-49 employees) - Bangor FCU; and TruChoice FCU; and Medium Employer Category (50-249 employees) - Evergreen CU; Infinity FCU; Maine State CU; PeoplesChoice CU; Town & Country FCU; and York County FCU.
