High Five - to Cape Cod Five!
Cape Cod 5
Cape Cod 5 has been named one of the Top Places to Work in Massachusetts by The Boston Globe. Consideration for the list, which is in its 11 th year, included an evaluation of workplace management, training, strategic direction and job satisfaction via a confidential employee survey.

“Cape Cod 5 is thrilled to be recognized as a Top Place to Work in Massachusetts,” said Dorothy A. Savarese, President and CEO of Cape Cod 5. “We consider this acknowledgement a direct reflection of our employees, who every day embody the Bank’s mission of serving our customers, members of the community and one another. We will continue to work to enhance our employees’ experience at Cape Cod 5 through career and leadership development and engagement in the community, while maintaining the important focus on supporting work-life balance.”

The employee survey information was collected by Energage, an independent company specializing in employee engagement and retention.

Over 80,000 individuals from over three hundred Massachusetts organizations were surveyed in consideration for the Top Places to Work . A full list of rankings can be found online at The Boston Globe and in the Sunday, November 18 issue of The Boston Globe Magazine.

NMLC logo
Cape Cod is a stranding hotspot. Each year, up to 56 live seals, 98 live dolphins, and 144 live sea turtles strand on our beaches, sick, injured, and in need of medical care.
In 1995, a group of visionaries gathered to address the significant environmental need of a hospital to care for these stranded animals, many of whom are endangered and all of whom are federally-protected species. And thus, the National Marine Life Center was born.
We honor and thank our founding board, especially founding chair Elizabeth Hornor and her successor Townsend Hornor, for their tremendous efforts to get the National Marine Life Center off the ground. We continue to work tirelessly to build and implement their vision.
Save the Environment one bag at a time
What can you do to help?
Did you know that one reusable bag replaces over 700 plastic bags in its lifetime of use? Hows that for protecting wildlife from ingesting things they shouldn't and keeping our oceans cleaner? Using reusable bags also limit paper by saving trees.
