WATERBURY, Conn., October 4, 2018 – Webster Bank is pleased to announce it has been selected as a 2018 Top Workplace by both Hearst Connecticut Media Group and Hartford Courant. This is the second year in a row Webster has appeared on both lists.
“Our bankers are our most important differentiator. Ensuring that Webster is a great place to work is among our top priorities,” said President and CEO John Ciulla. “We empower our bankers to excel, investing in training, education and the tools they need to be the best they can be. In return, we encourage them to work collaboratively, to strive for personal excellence and to be accountable for results.”
Ciulla also received the Leadership Award in the large company category in the Hearst Media survey group. The ranking was based on achieving the highest percentage of positive responses to the survey question, “I have confidence in the leader of this company.”
Both the Hearst and Courant lists are based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered earlier this year by Energage, LLC, a provider of technology-based employee engagement tools.
The Top Workplaces survey gathered responses on 24 factors covering several aspects of workplace culture including alignment, execution and connection, and pay, benefits and training.
“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
