BOSTON, MA – Shawmut was named one of the nation’s 100 Best Workplaces by FORTUNE® Magazine, earning the 50th spot on the Medium Sized Companies list. This marks the first time Shawmut has been honored nationally, and is preceded by being named a best place to work 42 times in our regional markets.
Considered to be the premier Great Place to Work ranking in the nation, FORTUNE’s list is based on anonymous employee responses to an extensive survey that covers such topics as trust, camaraderie, and pride. Shawmut scored near the top in almost every category, including:
Pride in accomplishment.
A total of 99% of employees cited a strong sense of pride—not just in the projects we build, but also in the way we serve our clients.
Consistently going above and beyond for our clients goes hand-in hand with going above and beyond for our employees—97% of whom feel we offer incredible benefits, like an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP), a company-paid health coverage option, college tuition reimbursement, a comprehensive four-week Paid Family Leave benefit, and Shawmut Flex, an industry-leading program that provides employees with flexible work arrangements.
“We put our values to work every day in both the field and in the office. For employees, this translates to strong work-life integration, comprehensive benefits, and consistent opportunities for career development,” said Les Hiscoe, chief executive officer of Shawmut. “Such arrangements are a proven way to enhance employee engagement, productivity, and job satisfaction, all of which ultimately serve to enhance our customer experience.”
Giving back to the community.
From raising over $752,000 for Dana–Farber Cancer Institute through our annual participation in the Pan-Mass Challenge to donating $26,000 of toys through Project Happier Holidays, 97% of employees feel good about the ways we give back to the community.
