Hearst Connecticut Media Group Names First County Bank A Winner of the Hearst Connecticut Top WorkPlaces 2020 Award

STAMFORD, Conn., September 29, 2020 – First County Bank has been recognized as a Top Workplaces 2020 winner by Hearst Connecticut Media Group. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization, including: alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“In times of great change, it is more important than ever to maintain a connection among employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward based on real-time insights into what works best for your organization. The Top Workplaces program can be that positive outcome your company can rally around in the coming months to celebrate leadership and the importance of maintaining an employee-focused culture, even during challenging times.”

First County Bank is thrilled to be one of the companies who have won this year’s award, especially when going up against much larger organizations throughout Connecticut. “It is such a great honor to win this award and I am excited to announce this to our employees, to our customers, and to our community”, said Robert Granata, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of First County Bank. “Our employees are vital to the success of the Bank as they are the greatest resources we have, and I am proud to lead this organization for them.”

“I think the most important thing about winning the Top Workplaces Award is knowing that the feedback came directly, and only from our employees,” said June Walker, Chief Human Resources Officer for First County Bank. “This year has been tough and through it all our employees still believe in who we are, which speaks volumes, and winning this award only echoes the sentiment.”
