posted Katie Hansen 4/29/2020 in Community

While 2020 has started off more turbulent than any of us could have imagined, it has also brought a renewal of appreciation and dedication throughout our team. Before the coronavirus pandemic spread to the United States, Lincoln Savings Bank was honored with several awards highlighting the effort and service provided by our employees. Today, we’d like to share these recognitions and spotlight the incredible people behind them.

LSB Chosen as Inspiring Business for Women Honoree

The Girls Scouts Inspiring Women of Iowa is an event that honors women of courage, confidence, and character. During each annual event, twelve women are recognized for demonstrating the foundational traits emphasized throughout the Girl Scouts curriculum. This year’s awards are also honoring six businesses who support and advocate for women in the workplace as Inspiring Businesses for Women. LSB is thankful to be honored among these six businesses, each of us striving to make our companies a place for women to grow and succeed. Our Regional Retail Lead, Lindsey Ellis, continues to work alongside the Girl Scouts of Iowa, encouraging event participation among our growing Des Moines staff.

LSB Named a Finalist by the TAI for Three Prometheus Awards

The Technology Association of Iowa’s Prometheus Awards is one of the highlights of the springtime. While this year’s event will be postponed until June, we are humbled and thankful to be nominated next to so many impactful Iowa businesses. While winning a Prometheus Award is a compelling and moving show of honor, the recognition of becoming a finalist showcases the top companies within Iowa’s growing technology field. Lincoln Savings Bank is honored to be a finalist for the following 2020 Prometheus Awards:
  • Creative Technology Solution of the Year
  • FinTech & InsurTech Company of the Year
  • Workvia Large Company of the Year
Our team was equally joyous to learn that the Cedar Valley has also been named a finalist in the Technology Community of the Year category. We are eager and excited to share our story with the Tech Community of Iowa once the Prometheus Awards are able to commence.

At Lincoln Savings Bank our saga is “we love the people we work with and the customers we serve.” As  we continue to move through this pandemic, and emerge into the new world around us, we want to assure you that our team will continue to be a partner with our communities and lift up the people within them.

One day at a time, one step at a time, we will get through this together.
