Those of you who have been around since the good ol’ Great Plains days have experienced firsthand how different two company cultures can be.
Under the leadership of Doug Burgum (now Governor of North Dakota), the culture at Great Plains was community-minded…and a little quirky. Leadership fostered an environment where employees and Partners all felt part of the team. That culture permeated throughout Great Plains – from job roles to events like Stampede. And who can forget Doug’s Q&As? You never knew what Doug might talk about – bee colonies, Lewis and Clark, or what it’s like to hitchhike in Alaska – but you knew that as much as the story might twist and wander, it always came back to a central theme of community and a shared mission.
