St. Mary’s Bank has been named a 2018 “Best Credit Union to Work For” by Credit Union Journal
and Best Companies Group, a partnership that identifies credit unions across the country that excel in creating quality workplaces for their employees.
“We are honored to be named one of the Best Credit Unions to Work For for the second consecutive year,” states Ronald Covey, President/CEO of St. Mary’s Bank. “This recognition is particularly meaningful because it is largely determined by our employees and their experiences of working at St. Mary’s Bank.”

Participating credit unions were scored on two elements: an employer benefits and policies questionnaire (worth 25 percent) and an employee engagement and satisfaction survey (worth 75 percent).
“We work hard to offer benefits that add value to our employees’ lives and to create an environment that promotes work/life balance as well as professional and personal growth opportunities,” explains Pam Roy, Vice President/Director of Human Resources at St. Mary’s Bank. “Our employees value our benefits and take pride in our culture, so we owe this recognition to them.”
What makes St. Mary’s Bank a unique place to work? It starts with the credit union’s unwavering commitment to programs that enhance employees’ lives.
- Appreciation: Monthly President’s Breakfast for service anniversaries; thank-you gifts for milestone anniversaries, starting at five years; annual President’s Club dinner for employees with 20 or more years of service
- Camaraderie: Annual Family Fun Days for employees and their families that include outings to Fisher Cats baseball games or Canobie Lake Park
- Volunteerism: Award-winning volunteer culture that encourages employees to give more than 4,000 hours yearly, including time during work hours, to causes close to their hearts
- Wellness: On-site yoga, two on-site workout facilities, one-on-one nutritional counseling and seasonal activities such as nature walks and apple picking
