Here at Great Plains Communications, we are very proud of how long so many of our employees choose to stay with us. Recently we celebrated the milestones of 14 of our employees who have provided a combined 220 years of service to us and our communities.
The awards were handed out at the regional meeting, which was attended by approximately 150 employees, in Broken Bow.

Our Director of Operations agrees, “We’ve been very fortunate to have such longevity with our employees not only because of employee loyalty, but also because of their commitment to the communities that they serve. Having employees who are part of our communities for such a long time allows for really strong connections to be made.”
