Shawmut has been named a 2020 Best Workplace for Millennials by Fortune Magazine. Adding to an already impressive list of accolades, this marks Shawmut’s latest recognition by the prestigious publication—including being named a Best Workplace nationally three consecutive times and a Best Workplace in New York for the last two years.
From employee ownership and a people-first culture to career development and industry-leading benefits, here are a few reasons why our millennials say Shawmut is a best workplace.
Millennials represent 56% of Shawmut’s workforce—and from construction operations to internal support, our culture is designed to empower our people to own their career.
As a 100% employee-owned company, our people take pride in being part of a talent-driven and leading-edge organization focused on delivering client service excellence. After all, 97% of our people say they are proud to tell others they work here.
Our people are just as impressive as the partners we work with—and 96% say they are given the right amount of responsibility. Our commitment to world-class client service and innovation in safety and technology is a central tenant to this—and enables our people to build for the best. Harvard University, The MET, Soho House, Union Square Hospitality Group, Chanel, and Barclays Center are just a few of our impressive clients.
We actively invest to build on our world-class safety program to ensure that everyone goes home safely each night. We implement programs and technologies that harness the power of virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and real-time data collection to proactively reduce risk and advance our commitment to creating a safer industry for all.
We realize that for our employees to feel their best and reach their highest potential, we need to provide them an open and inclusive environment. We pride ourselves on creating a culture of care where everyone feels welcome—and actively embrace the many differences in our people.
As employee owners, we invest in our people. With leadership development programs—like our Construction Management Skills Training for recent college graduates—and transparent tools, our people own their career.
Great people deserve great benefits—and ours are among the best, including Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), 100% employee-paid health insurance, paid family leave, and flexible work arrangements.
