Mountain America Credit Union Recognized as Top 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials

WEST JORDAN, UT--(Marketwired - Jun 23, 2015) -  Mountain America Credit Union is honored to announce that, after surveying nearly 90,000 millennials, Great Place to Work® and Fortune have recognized Mountain America as one of the country's 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials. The 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials is part of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work® and Fortune based entirely on anonymous employee surveys with published Great Place to Work® Reviews.

"Millennials are a unique generation and they represent the future of Mountain America," said Sterling Nielsen, CEO of Mountain America. "Our innovative culture is vibrant and reflects our core values -- that is one of the things that makes this a great place to work. We are proud to provide a great environment for Millennials working and pursuing successful careers at Mountain America."

To identify who makes the list, Fortune partners with Great Place to Work® to conduct an extensive search of a variety of companies across corporate America. A random sample of employees at each company completes a Trust Index Employee Survey asking questions related to employees' attitudes about management's credibility, overall job satisfaction and camaraderie. The survey accounts for the lions-share of a company's overall score; the remaining third is based on responses to a company's Culture Audit, which examines pay, benefit programs, perks and a series of essay-type questions about the company's hiring practices, methods of internal communication, training, recognition programs and efforts to create a diverse workplace.

"Companies focused on solid growth understand that it's critical for senior leaders to have an in-depth understanding of all their employees' experiences, regardless of their age, role in the organization or any other demographic profile," says Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work® United States. "Great workplaces are constantly monitoring and analyzing their employees' workplace experiences and then taking action to improve them. Ranking on this list is a great indicator that these companies' efforts to create great workplaces are resonating with millennials."

Mountain America has 84 branches with over 1,400 employees across 5 states. Currently 46% of Mountain America employees are millennial-aged.
