Mountain America Credit Union Recognized as Top 50 Best Workplaces for Diversity

WEST JORDAN, UT--(Marketwired - November 16, 2015) - Mountain America Credit Union is honored to announce that, Great Place to Work® and Fortune have recognized Mountain America as one of the country's 50 Best Workplaces For Diversity. The 50 Best Workplaces for Diversity is part of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work® and Fortune based on anonymous employee surveys with published Great Place to Work® Reviews.

"We would expect our employees to provide no less than exceptional service for our members, as well as each other. In order to achieve such high standards of excellence, the work experience and culture should meet those same expectations," says Sterling Nielsen, CEO of Mountain America. "This award reflects how hard everyone here works to provide each other with that same quality of service, trust and mutual respect."

The winners were selected based on evaluations by over 128,000 women and 69,000 minorities on Great Place to Work's Trust Index© employee survey. Employees considered things like how comfortable they feel being themselves; the degree of favoritism or insider politics they observe in the workplace; the fairness of promotions; the degree of honest connection with coworkers; their access to senior leadership; and who receives information and professional development and who doesn't.

Scores also take into account how well-represented women and minorities are within the workforce, management and executive positions; how positively they experience their workplace on an index of factors where women and minorities tend to have a less positive experience than their colleagues; and how favorably women's and minorities' experiences compare to the 139,000 men and 184,000 Caucasians also surveyed.

"The companies on this list are leaders who recognize the strategic importance of creating workplaces that attract and support the best talent in their industries," says Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work® United States. "The best companies are focused on creating great workplaces for all."
