First PREMIER Named One of the “Best Banks to Work For” for the 7th Consecutive Year

CONTACT:  Dave Rozenboom, First PREMIER Bank President


SIOUX FALLS— First PREMIER Bank was recently honored as one of American Banker magazine’s “Best Banks to Work For.” This is the seventh consecutive year First PREMIER has made the list, which recognizes financial institutions for outstanding corporate culture, employee benefits, financial and physical wellness programs, and workplace atmosphere.


“This honor is truly a reflection of our 375 amazing employees,” said First PREMIER Bank President Dave Rozenboom. “We have an incredible team of individuals who embrace what we call The PREMIER Way – our shared vision, views and values. And at the center of this are PREMIER’s customers, communities and employees.”


Rozenboom said this year’s ranking was based largely upon measures First PREMIER has taken to recruit and retain bank employees. He added this is a major challenge facing companies both within and outside the financial services industry.


“First PREMIER Bank makes every effort to hire only the best possible people for each of its positions,” Rozenboom said. “We ensure they are a good fit professionally, but more importantly we find people who embody and embrace The PREMIER Way.”


First PREMIER Bank also takes extraordinary steps to help retain its employees, Rozenboom said. He cited surprise gifts and bonuses for all employees, team-building activities and special parties which have included private concerts featuring national acts including the Zac Brown Band, the Dave Matthews Band, and Keith Urban.


“We also provide a generous salary and benefits package that includes paid volunteer time and health insurance benefits for employees who work part-time hours,” Rozenboom added. “At First PREMIER, we truly value our people—that’s what makes our bank one of the best to work for. When you treat people right, they treat our customers right.”
