Winner: Best Large Company to Work For (50 +) 2017

Winner: Bell Bank

Location: 20 full-service banks in North Dakota and Minnesota, 12 of which are in the Red River Valley.


What makes Bell Bank the best large employer in the region?

"For Bell, the key to a great workplace is a family atmosphere," said the Bell Bank President and CEO Michael Solberg. "We want our employees to feel like their co-workers are their family away from home, and we celebrate and evangelize that on a daily basis."


"Last year, we launched an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP), giving our team an even greater sense of pride and stewardship by making them owners of the company," explains Solberg.


Bell Bank believes in treating employees and customers like family, which explains why their employees are so dedicated and voted their employer the best large company to work for in the Fargo-Moorhead community.
