MADISON, WI (June 6, 2023) — Summit Credit Union, a member-owned financial cooperative, has been named Top Workplaces in Madison, Milwaukee and the USA. These honors are judged using company-wide surveys.

“We have a strong purpose that drives our culture and engagement,” said Summit CEO & President Kim Sponem. “We hire people who work hard and care about people.

Summit Credit Union was named one of the Top Workplaces in the USA in January. In March, Summit was named in the Top Workplaces in Greater Madison. And in May the credit union was awarded Top Workplaces in the Milwaukee area.

Nominated organizations were judged using company-wide surveys measuring employee engagement. Survey categories include communication and cooperation, development opportunities, leadership and more.
