CUSO Recognized for Collaborative Work Environment, Rewarding Culture
Member Driven Technologies (MDT), a CUSO that hosts the Episys core platform from Symitar to provide a private cloud alternative for core processing and IT needs, has been acknowledged by Arizent, formerly SourceMedia, as one of the 2020 Best Places to Work in Financial Technology. MDT ranked in the top 20 companies on the list.
Each year, Arizent partners with independent research firm Best Companies Group to compile the list. Companies are selected based on surveys inquiring about factors such as workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, demographics and the overall employee experience. There were 49 companies included in the 2020 rankings, spanning a wide range of financial services including credit unions, banking and mortgages, insurance, payments and financial advisory.
“The competition for talent in technology is intense and companies named to Arizent’s Best Places to Work in Financial Technology are setting the standard in terms of cultures that help people thrive,” said Richard Melville, Group Editorial Director at Arizent.
MDT is dedicated to facilitating a dynamic and rewarding work environment. The CUSO offers exceptional benefits and leading amenities to employees, including a gym, relaxation room, snack bar with healthy options, an outdoor workspace and local artwork throughout the building honoring Detroit’s unique history. To foster collaboration, MDT recently established a recurring innovation challenge that encourages employees to present ideas – both big and small — that drive everything from internal process improvements to new products for their clients. Winning ideas are then implemented, making employees feel valued and heard.
“At MDT, service is our number one driver, and our employees are the reason we are able to provide superior service and support to our more than 100 credit union clients,” said Larry Nichols, CEO and President of MDT. “Fostering a workplace environment that prioritizes professional development, employee satisfaction and innovation empowers our team to maximize their potential and thrive. We are honored to be recognized as one of the top workplaces in fintech.”
