Employees

As of December 31, 2005, the Company had 436 full-time equivalent employees: no employees are covered by a collective bargaining agreement. Following the mergers and consolidations in the early part of this decade and in its current pending merger with Columbia Trust Bank, AWB management has focused on acculturating employees while acknowledging and respecting the heritage of each bank and how it has shaped who the Company is today. All employees now operate under a unified organization, which management believes has been a positive transition. Renewed focus on employee training programs, on internal marketing and communication systems, and on consistent and equitable salary structures will further improve employee relations, which management believes are currently good.
