ST. LOUISApril 25, 2024 /7Newswire — MOHELA, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the student loan borrowers it serves, has been awarded a 2024 Top Workplace by USA Today.

The prestigious award from USA Today recognizes MOHELA’s commitment to fostering an inclusive work culture, making a positive impact in the communities they serve, and fulfilling its mission of care for their employees and borrowers.

“We are proud to be recognized as one of the nation’s Top Workplaces,” said Scott Giles, MOHELA’s Executive Director and CEO. “This award is a testament to the core values we deliver every day of service excellence, teamwork, agility, integrity, respect, and stewardship. Our employees take great pride in making a positive impact on lives by providing support to borrowers while they are navigating their loan repayment process. Our employees care about each other, and they care about the borrowers we serve.”

The Top Workplaces USA awards recognize organizations with 150 or more employees for fostering strong workplace cultures. Winners are selected based on employee feedback gathered through an employee engagement survey.
