The annual ranking is based on an independent survey by Statista.com of 30,000 American employees working for large or midsize U.S. companies and institutions. They were asked anonymously through several online panels if they'd recommend their employer, or any other employers in their industry, to a potential employee.
Webster bankers are the company's competitive differentiator because they truly understand the needs of our customers and communities and respond to helping them achieve what matters most. "They are committed to supporting our mission to help individuals, families and businesses achieve their financial goals, while at the same time championing our core values known as the Webster Way," said Bernard Garrigues, executive vice president and chief human resources officer.
The Webster Way includes taking personal responsibility for meeting our customers' needs, respecting the dignity of every individual, earning trust through ethical behavior, giving of ourselves in the communities we serve, and working together to achieve outstanding results.
