HARTFORD, CT – Shawmut’s Connecticut office was recently named one of the Best Places to Work by Hartford Business Journal. Following on the heels of being named one of the nation’s 100 Best Workplaces by Fortune Magazine for a second consecutive year, this marks the 52nd time Shawmut has been honored regionally.
The annual awards program identifies, recognizes, and honors the best employers in Connecticut who contribute to the state's economy and workforce. Participating companies are required to go through a workplace assessment process, including employee surveys and a full inventory of company benefits, policies, and offerings.
