On Monday, March 19th, NEWaukee announced the winners of the 2018 Bubbler Awards: Best Places to Work for Young Professionals in Wisconsin. The following companies were nominated by their employees, evaluated, and selected by a group of young professional leaders from across the state of Wisconsin as the Top 10 Best Places for Young Professionals. Forward Bank headquartered in Marshfield and serving the surrounding communities is proudly in the top 10.

“I feel honored and humbled to be on a list with companies like the ones listed,” expressed Bill Sennholz, President/CEO of Forward Bank. “But it’s really the dedication of our team who is the driving factor behind our culture and success.”

The Bubbler Awards, part of the YPWeek Wisconsin (a statewide collaboration of young professionals showcasing their communities) highlights companies who have made it a priority to create an environment that allows not only young professionals, but all their employees, to connect to their workplace and community in unique and valuable ways. Forward Bank’s level of community involvement, employee engagement practices, and professional development opportunities were key factors in their nomination.

Hundreds of nominations were submitted and Forward Bank is one of three companies based in Central Wisconsin to receive the award this year and the first ever in Marshfield. “This was the second year I nominated Forward for a Bubbler Award, because I truly believe we offer an employee experience unlike any other. And this year, the jury saw Forward the way I do,” stated Jes Mannigel, Marketing Specialist at Forward Bank.
