Every team member is empowered to ‘lead with their heart’ and do the right thing,” Chief Culture Officer Julie Peterson Klein said. “We have a very simple mission statement we call our ‘bottom line,’ and that is, ‘Happy employees! Happy customers!’ We know when we’re a great company to work for, our teams will in turn take great care of our customers. We’re so honored to be recognized locally and nationally as a top workplace.”

How do you cultivate corporate culture?

“Our core values – family atmosphere, unequaled service, and paying it forward – are easy to remember and keep top of mind for everyone at Bell Bank,” Klein said. “Throughout the year, we embrace those values. We encouraged all of our employees to actively recognize their co-workers when they ‘catch them’ doing good work through actions that embody family, service or giving back to the community.”

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
