For many, the phrase “certified public accounting” conjures up images of gray cubicles, stale coffee and dour-looking men in business suits. The employees of would probably laugh at this.

Eide Bailly places a high value on its employees and goes the distance to keep them both healthy and happy. Every office has a designated Wellness Champion and corresponding committee, whose job it is to keep the workplace fit by providing healthy snacks, guest speakers and in-office activities year-round. Free health screenings to all staff members allow them to see their progress (or what still needs work).
Overseeing operations at Eide Bailly is Steve Corley, recently named one of the state’s “Most-Admired CEOs.” Having an awesome boss must generate awesome employees, because gift cards are kept on hand and frequently given out to those performing above and beyond the call of duty.
Working hard comes with playing hard. The company has an impressive repertoire, working with industries ranging from agriculture production to government, real-estate to nonprofit, and just about everything in between.
