Shawmut has been named one of the nation’s Best Workplaces by FORTUNE® Magazine, marking the eighth year in a row the firm has been recognized.

This prestigious ranking honors Shawmut’s people-first culture, which is committed to fostering a talent-driven, leading-edge workplace that is laser focused on creating an inclusive, respectful, and equitable environment where all employees can contribute to their fullest potential. As a 100% employee-owned company, each employee is charged with thinking and acting like an owner—which requires efficiency, collaboration, transparency, and integrity—translating into a collaborative, efficient, and diverse workplace.

This culture of ownership drives team members to deliver their best for their colleagues, clients, partners, and communities. This is called the Shawmut Way, meaning Shawmut employee-owners prioritize:


Providing an unmatched client experience that consistently exceeds expectations. Employee-owners are relentless in finding a better way, delivering 10s, and providing a journey that keeps clients coming back.


Creating a healthy, injury-free environment that prioritizes not only sending people home safe, but better.


Striving for the best outcomes through continuous improvement in themselves and dedicating time to develop others.


Building an environment of inclusivity, diversity, openness, and respect. Employee-owners care about each other, our partners, and the communities we work in.

As the premier best workplaces ranking in the nation, FORTUNE selects companies using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback.
