Throughout its 165-year history, Chelsea Groton Bank has won many awards for helping its customers and communities achieve their goals. For the fourth year in a row, employees have bestowed the bank with the 2019 "Top Workplaces" honor by the Hartford Courant.
“Fostering a positive workplace culture has always been a top priority. This is more than a job to all of us and that is reflected in the enthusiastic employee feedback,” said President and CEO Michael Rauh.
The annual award is based on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by Energage, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Fifteen aspects of workplace culture were measured, covering four main areas, including how well employees work together toward a common cause. Employees were asked about company values, whether new ideas are encouraged or if managers help employees learn and grow. Pay, benefits and training also are key questions. Chelsea Bank employees noted that their contributions both in and out of the office are highly valued and that they are members of a close-knit work family.
