Midwest Bank Named Best Community Bank to Work For 2022

Norfolk, Neb. (Dec. 01, 2022)Independent Banker magazine, the award-winning monthly publication of the Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA), today named Midwest Bank as a 2022 Best Community Banks to Work For recipient. The $990 million-asset bank was recognized for its family-oriented culture that engenders goodwill and camaraderie and reinforces a strong sense of community.

“We are honored to be named one of the Best Community Banks to Work For by ICBA Independent Banker magazine,” Midwest Bank President and CEO Doug Johnson said. “We’ve focused on hiring good people and working hard to treat those employees well by supporting them in and out of work,” he says. “We’re proud to be a local bank that is known for supporting our employees, being active in our communities, and giving back to those that need it most.”

Midwest Bank is highlighted in Independent Banker’s December issue representing community banks with $751 million to $1 billion in assets. Each self-nominated community bank’s full-time employees were asked to complete a workplace survey hosted by Avannis, an independent research agency. Key criteria considered in selecting this year’s honorees included: work environment, compensation, leadership and corporate culture, and opportunity for recognition and advancement.
