Forbes Names Webster Bank to ‘America’s Best Employers by State’


Webster Bank  is pleased to announce Forbes has named Webster to its first-ever ranking of America’s best employers by state.

Webster was the only Connecticut-based bank on the list of 36 state companies. Forbes also recently recognized Webster in its list of the ‘World’s Best Banks.’

Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to identify the organizations that employees liked best in this first-ever survey. The rankings are divided into 51 lists, including all states and the District of Columbia.

To determine the winners, Statista surveyed 50,000 Americans working for businesses with 500 or more employees. The anonymous survey asked respondents to rate how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others. Respondents could also nominate organizations in industries outside their own.

Since its founding in 1935, Webster Bank has expanded to become a leading regional bank in the Northeast, with more than $28 billion in assets and 157 banking centers from greater New York City to Boston.

Today, Webster offers a full range of financial services, including business and consumer banking, mortgage, financial planning, trust, and investment services. Most recently, Webster Bank has been recognized as New England’s top U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) lender, by dollar volume and best overall bank in the Northeast in Bank Director's annual RankingBanking study released in January 2019.
