Glenwood State Bank ranked No. 28 in a list of top small business employers compiled by the Minneapolis Star Tribune. The 150 Top Workplaces list is the result of an annual survey sent to hundreds of businesses in Minnesota and taken by thousands of employees.
The small business category consists of companies with 50 to 149 employees. Employees ranked Glenwood State Bank based on leadership, benefits, and the company's strategic direction without knowing the survey's intent.
"Glenwood State Bank allows me to work at my full potential," one employee wrote in the survey. Another said "my job makes me feel like I am part of something meaningful."
"Our No. 1 asset always has been, and always will be, our employees," President Peter Nelson said in a news release. "Why wouldn't you do all you can to invest in your greatest asset?"
Glenwood State Bank has offices in Glenwood, Alexandria and Villard.
The Star Tribune published the complete list of Top Workplaces on June 25. Bell State Bank and Bursch Travel were also among the local employers making the list.
