Bell State Bank & Trust Receives Workplace Awards

Top-100Bell State Bank & Trust, headquartered in Fargo, N.D., has been named a top 100 workplace statewide by two Minnesota business publications.

Earlier this month, Bell State Bank & Trust was named the third most highly ranked large company among the “100 Best Companies to Work For” by Minnesota Business magazine. Last week, Bell State Bank & Trust was recognized for the third straight year by the Minneapolis StarTribune newspaper and was named to the top 10 of the “Top 100 Workplaces in Minnesota.” Bell State Bank & Trust was the second most highly ranked midsize company (with 150 to 499 employees in Minnesota).

The StarTribune also gave Bell State Bank & Trust special recognition for its business ethics in a special Top Workplaces section entitled, “What They’re Good At.”

Both workplace awards salute progressive Minnesota companies that are setting standards in leadership, pay and benefits, work environment, career opportunities and employee happiness. The awards are given based in large part on third-party surveys of thousands of employees at companies across Minnesota.

“We are proud of this recognition, because it is really a credit to all of our dedicated employees,” said Bell State Bank & Trust president Michael Solberg, “Our team has created a work atmosphere in which we do what is right for our customers and treat each other like family.”

Founded in 1966, Bell State Bank & Trust is the largest independently owned bank in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota, with more than $2.6 billion in assets, and more than $3.5 billion in assets under management through its Wealth Management Division. Bell State Bank & Trust has 19 full-service bank locations in Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo, Wahpeton, Breckenridge, Dilworth, Hawley, Audubon, Detroit Lakes, Pelican Rapids, Fergus Falls, Alexandria and Minneapolis, as well as wealth management offices in Fargo and Bismarck, N.D., and Boise, Idaho.
