Star Tribune Names Alerus a 2021 Top Workplace

MINNEAPOLIS (July 7, 2021) – For the third year in a row, Alerus has been named one of the Top Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune. The annual program recognizes the most progressive companies based on employee input regarding workplace elements such as engagement, organizational health, and satisfaction.

“Everything we do at Alerus is centered around doing the right thing for our clients, our employees, and our communities,” said Alerus Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer Randy Newman. “We believe in taking care of each other so we can all take even better care of our clients. To be recognized for our efforts in this way is a true honor, especially when the judges are our employees. We are grateful for their dedication to Alerus, and inspired by their commitment to helping our clients achieve financial confidence.”
