Cornerstone Bank recognized as ‘Top Employer, Best Places to Work’ by Worcester Telegram & Gazette

Cornerstone Bank was recently recognized as “Top Employer, Best Place to Work” overall by the Worcester Telegram & Gazette based on votes by readers.

“Winning this award means a lot to us because we place a high priority on employee satisfaction,” said CEO Todd Tallman. “We also know that happy employees will put their best selves forward in serving our customers. This was proven as we were one of two finalists in the ‘Best Bank’ category as well.”

Beyond the typical benefits provided by many employers, such as health, dental, vision and life insurance; short- and long-term disability; paid holidays, vacation and sick days; Cornerstone offers other less common benefits. These include pet insurance, a student loan pay-down program, tuition reimbursement and a 401(k) plan with matching contributions.

“We also offer a number of perks that our employees really appreciate,” said Maria Salvatore, Cornerstone Bank’s Chief Culture Officer. “For example, we have drawings for tickets to sporting events, concerts and shows; and share our appreciation with holiday and seasonal gifts, success-sharing bonuses and service anniversary recognition and gifts. We work hard to inspire a feeling of teamwork and solidarity and want our employees to feel recognized in our success.”
