BAILEYVILLE – Downeast Credit Union is pleased to have achieved recognition as one of Maine’s Best Places to Work for 2019.

For the third year in a row, the credit union is proud to have been selected as a premier place to work in Maine. This year, the credit union is one of 48 employers to be honored in the mid-sized business category (50-249 employees), and one of 100 total organizations to be recognized across the state. Last year, it ranked 3rd overall in the mid-sized category and awaits its 2019 ranking which will be announced on Oct. 2.

Best Places to Work is a statewide program that gathers information from employee satisfaction surveys, benefits and workplace policies. Team members noted some of their favorite workplace activities include: giving back to community causes, paid 3-day weekends, healthy snacks in the breakroom, bonus program and professional development program.

“We take a lot of pride in being named Best Places to Work for the third year in a row,” said president/CEO Joe Moses. “This recognition shows that our team members are truly satisfied with Downeast. Our Board and Senior Management teams help drive our corporate culture and instill a workplace environment that prioritizes a work-life balance, incorporates fun, and provides the ability to give back through donations and volunteerism to causes that our staff has a passion for.”
