NEWPORT, R.I. (June 2018) BankNewport was honored at the Best Places to Work in Rhode Island 2018 award ceremony held on June 14 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Warwick.
Presented by Providence Business News in conjunction with The Best Companies Group, the ceremony recognized 52 organizations chosen as the Best Places to Work in Rhode Island. It is the ninth year BankNewport has been recognized in the “large business” category (i.e., 150 to 499 employees). This year the Bank was ranked number 3 out of 12 large businesses.
Organizations were selected for the Best Places to Work list based on a two-part assessment process – the responses of an extensive employee survey and an evaluation of management practices. The information collected from both instruments was reviewed by Best Companies to determine the strengths and opportunities of participating organizations.
