On behalf of the Board of Directors and Executive Management Team, I am proud to announce that First County Bank has been named to the list of Top Workplaces 2011, published by the Hearst Connecticut Newspapers. First County Bank was named in a special section of the papers and online at www.ctpost.com.
The evaluation for the Top Workplaces program is based upon feedback from an employee survey that many of our employees completed a few months ago. We had a 70% response rate to the survey!
The same core principles that make First County Bank a great place to bank –placing our customers’ security ahead of dividends, providing great service, and helping our communities –have also made it a great place to work. None of this would be possible without the talent and dedication of all our employees.
59 companies participated in the program and 35 companies have been selected for the Top Workplaces award. We are honored to be the top-rated bank among medium-sized businesses. Particularly as the judges were our employees!
