Maine Credit Union League & Synergent make 2020 Best Places to Work in Maine List

Annual award recognizes 84 companies, including 12 credit unions, with workplace distinction

WESTBROOK, ME (September 15, 2020) — The Maine Credit Union League and Synergent were recently named as one of the 2020 Best Places to Work in Maine. The awards program was created in 2006 and is a project of the Maine State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management (MESHRM) and Best Companies Group.

The Best Places to Work in Maine list recognizes companies that have established a consistently outstanding workplace environment. The program is part of a long-term initiative to encourage growth and excellence in businesses across Maine. The 2020 Best Places to Work in Maine list is comprised of 84 companies in three distinct size categories: small (15-49 U.S. employees), medium (50-249 U.S. employees), and large (250+ U.S. employees). The Maine Credit Union League and Synergent were recognized in the medium size category.

“Our company is committed to providing our employees a supportive work environment where they can grow and thrive,” said Cris Wescott, Senior Vice President of Human Resources & Facilities of the Maine Credit Union League and Synergent. “We view ourselves as one big family and we are thrilled to have our name on the 2020 Best Places to Work in Maine list.”

Earlier this summer, the Maine Credit Union League and Synergent entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Maine. The first part consisted of evaluating workplace policies, practices, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and used their expertise to determine the top companies and final rankings.

Several Maine credit unions also are recognized on the 2020 Best Places to Work in Maine list. In the small employer category, winners include:

In the medium employer category, winners include:

The Maine Credit Union League and Synergent and the above listed credit unions will be recognized in a special edition of Mainebiz next month. The publication will announce the placing of each of these Best Places to Work in Maine companies in the publication.

“It is an honor to be recognized and to see so many Maine credit unions on this list because credit unions are exceptional places to work and build a career,” said Todd Mason, President/CEO of the Maine Credit Union League and Synergent. “Our dedicated employees are at the heart and soul of everything we do. This accolade is an acknowledgement of their hard work and their commitment to our People Helping People philosophy.”

Partners endorsing this workplace recognition program include the Maine State Chamber of Commerce, Maine HR Convention, and Mainebiz. For more information on the Best Places to Work in Maine program, visit
