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 named a 2021 Best Places to Work in Financial Technology by Arizent and Best Companies Group. This is the second consecutive year that the CUSO made the list; this year, MDT ranked 13 out of 49 companies.
Arizent and Best Companies Group annually compile a list of top financial technology employers based on responses from a two-part survey. Companies are evaluated based on factors such as workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, demographics and the overall employee experience.
MDT offers its employees many benefits, such as optional pet insurance and a 4-week paternity leave, which demonstrates how the company values its team members and their loved ones. The “family first” CUSO provides a healthy work-life balance with flexible work-from-home schedules and has supported employees in the midst of the pandemic. MDT fosters a collaborative, dynamic environment where employees are encouraged to share their ideas and opinions. The company hosts a recurring innovation challenge where employees present ideas for internal improvement and innovative new products and winning ideas are implemented to give the team members a real voice and opportunity to create change.
MDT also has a commitment to equality for all; in 2020, the CUSO launched a social justice committee to celebrate and promote diversity and inclusion. Through this committee, the company has already committed $15,000 to scholarships for African-American high school seniors who are in the pursuit of higher education. In addition to this, in the last year, MDT has raised proceeds for United Way Organization in Montana and #FeedtheFrontLine in Detroit, helping to provide meals to essential hospital workers by hosting a company virtual talent show. Overall, the CUSO places an importance on taking care of its people and providing for its community.
“At MDT, we care deeply about our employees’ professional success and their physical, mental and emotional health,” said Larry Nichols, CEO and president of MDT. “We encourage and help our team members to reach their full potential but also want them to feel comfortable and valued within our work environment. It is an honor to be recognized once again by Arizent and Best Companies Group for these efforts and our commitment to providing a positive company culture.”
