AUBURN – Webster Five has finalized its relocation of the bank’s corporate offices to 35 Millbury Street in Auburn, Massachusetts. The bank has completed an extensive redesign of the existing 39,000 square-foot building, creating an inviting and collaborative workspace for its employees. The consolidation of more than 100 team members from three distinct locations in Auburn, Webster, and Worcester into a common office will increase efficiencies and foster innovation, as the bank sustains its focus on delivering exceptional customer service.
Webster Five has experienced significant growth over the past 25 years, and its footprint now extends well beyond its original markets of Webster, Dudley, and Oxford. As the bank approaches $1 billion in assets, the modernization and centralization of corporate workspace is essential to providing an outlet for continued growth. Webster Five’s corporate offices have been significantly enhanced, as the design of the new space fosters a strong sense of collaboration, creativity, and inclusion for employees throughout the organization. There will be no change to the bank’s branch footprint; existing branches will continue to be important centers of activity and convenience for customers.
While Webster Five remains deeply committed to its roots in Webster, the new corporate offices in Auburn offer an ideal central hub for both its employees and customers. Webster Five believes that this location will play a significant role in the bank’s continued growth as a leading community bank in Worcester County.
Donald F. Doyle, president and chief executive officer of Webster Five, stated, “This consolidation gives us the opportunity for increased interactions between departments to enhance collaboration. The design of the spaces was thoughtfully considered to create a unifying feel. While this move was planned prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are deeply conscious of the changes many of our employees have faced in the pandemic’s wake. We are aware that our employees’ family lives and schedules are still disrupted, so the transition back to full time in the office will be gradual and our new space will accommodate a hybrid work model for the foreseeable future.”
