SIOUX FALLS – First PREMIER Bank was recently named one of the “Best Banks to Work For” in 2018 by American Banker magazine. It is the fourth year in a row that First PREMIER has been ranked among the top 85 banks nationwide. The rankings, which first began in 2013, are a collaboration between American Banker and Best Companies Group.

First PREMIER Bank President Dave Rozenboom said the designation reflects the organization’s corporate culture and its quality employees.

“We continually work hard to build a culture that supports, encourages and empowers our employees,” Rozenboom said. “Our PREMIER culture has led to great successes for our organization and we always celebrate those successes with our associates. It’s one of the things that makes working here fun and it’s great to be recognized by one of our industry’s most respected publications.”

The ranking process includes both employer- and employee-submitted information. American Banker evaluates the submissions and selects recipients based upon workplace policies, practices, demographics, and employee assessments. First PREMIER Bank is one of only two banks in South Dakota to earn this distinction in 2018, and the only financial institution in South Dakota to make the list four years in a row.

“Our annual rankings recognize financial institutions that are committed to investing in employees’ job satisfaction, career development and personal growth, said Marc Hochstein, editor-in-chief of American Banker. “One of the most valuable assets for any organization is the team of people it employs, and banks are no exception.”
