BankNewport one of the best places to work

BankNewport was honored at an award ceremony on June 14 as one of the best places to work in the state. Carolyn Odell of BankNewport’s human-resources department accepted the award on behalf of the organization.

Presented by Providence Business News Group, the ceremony recognized 40 organizations chosen as the best places to work in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts. BankNewport was ranked fifth of the 13 organizations in the large-business category for companies with more than 150 employees. It is the sixth consecutive year that BankNewport has been named one of the best places to work.

“The award is significant as it demonstrates the bank’s commitment to provide a positive work environment for our most valuable asset, our employees,” said Senior Vice President Wendy Kagan. “We are proud that our employees recognize the Bank’s efforts to provide an environment that fosters pride, enthusiasm, and dedication. It is our team and their work philosophy that makes all the difference, ultimately providing an extraordinary experience for our customers everyday.”

Organizations were selected for the best places to work based on a two-part assessment process: the responses of an extensive employee survey, and an evaluation of management practices.
