Our Most Popular Blog Posts

The Great Western Bank Blog first launched in 2016 in an effort to keep customers informed with the latest in products, services and tools that help Make Life Great.

These days, we are able to share more with our readers, providing insight into company culture along with our involvement and support in the community.

As we reflect on the last two years, let’s take a look at the most popular posts we’ve shared along the way.

Here are our top five blog posts of all time:

5. Three Steps to Paying-Off Debt

Sometimes it’s best to take a step back and evaluate your situation. Great Western Bank Investment Representative, John Etrheim, guides us through a few simple steps to manage and eliminate debt – the smart way. Take this approach and stop feeling so overwhelmed. 

4. Proud to Unveil New, More Accessible Website

On April 12, 2017 we proudly launched a more accessible website, which gave us the opportunity to better share our story with all customers. From improved navigation to easy-to-read text, we have been able to improve the overall customer experience and couldn’t be more pleased with the results. We hope you think so too.

3. Wage Hike, Special Bonuses

Ken Karels, Chairman, President and CEO of Great Western Bancorp, Inc said it best – “We are proud of our people and their commitment to our mission to Make Life Great…” following the announcement of improved investments in employees and community reinvestment as a result of the tax reform package.

2. Enjoy Even More Control of Your Money

At Great Western Bank, we continually work to improve products and services that make banking easier for customers. A new Great Western ebanking mobile app was announced in July 2017 and has been a popular tool with our customers. A quick, simple and secure way to move money with just a few clicks.

1. 2016 Happy Holidays

We can’t help but chuckle at this one. Employees across our footprint had a fun time putting a twist on our holiday greeting, collectively reading from the book “Twas the Night Before Christmas”. Watch the video  and enjoy it all over again.

So there it is – our top five posts from the first two years. Whether you’ve been with us since the beginning or are new to our blog, we thank you for taking this journey with us. We are excited to keep sharing stories and Making Life Great.
