Webster Bank was named one of Connecticut’s “Great Places to Work 2018” in a survey conducted by Connecticut Magazine for its latest issue.
According to the publication, Webster was singled out for its rich professional-development opportunities, including career consultations, job shadowing, certification programs and the availability of a proprietary employee educational platform, Webster Bank University. The bank’s excellent benefits and diversity-and-inclusion programs were also highlighted.
“Our bankers are one of our most important differentiators in the marketplace,” said Bernard Garrigues, chief human resources officer. “Offering them opportunities to excel through training, education and the tools they need to be the best that they can be is how we demonstrate that they are among our top priorities.”
Prior to choosing the top 12 companies, Connecticut Magazine sought public input, interviewed employment professionals and investigated suggested companies prior to featuring them.
