Member Driven Technologies (MDT), a CUSO that hosts the Episys® core processing system from Symitar® to provide a private cloud alternative for core processing and IT needs, today announced that it has been acknowledged as a 2021 Cool Place to Work in Michigan by Crain’s Detroit Business for the fifth year in a row. MDT ranked no. 3 among the medium-sized companies on this year’s list and no. 15 overall.
The rankings were determined based on a confidential employee survey evaluating workplace culture, company leadership, benefits and growth opportunities. Employees commonly cited the company’s collaborative nature, flexibility, strong communication across all departments and competitive benefits and pay as the top reasons they enjoy working for MDT. The company’s uplifting and positive culture has been particularly evident as employees have faced challenges associated with the Covid-19 pandemic.
MDT has always embodied a “family first” philosophy; the company encourages employees to keep their families and their physical and mental well-being above all else. The importance of such an approach has been demonstrated in a significant way over the past 18 months. Since the pandemic’s onset, the company has supported its employees with significant flexibility and transparency. And MDT found ways to continue to provide an engaging, fun environment, offering various virtual events for employees such as online bingo, trivia and wellness challenges.
“At MDT, we’re known for our ability to have fun while working hard, but it’s our collaborative, supportive environment that employees tend to value most,” said Larry Nichols, president and CEO of MDT. “We’re dedicated to providing our employees with the tools and opportunities for ongoing success; they really are our greatest assets. We are proud to be named a Cool Place to Work in Michigan for the fifth year in a row, a direct testament to our positive, people-centric culture.”
MDT has nearly 150 employees across the United States and 115 in Michigan. For more on the Cool Places to Work in Michigan listing, click here.
