Almost everyone works with bank tellers at some point in life. We go up to the teller window and give them our money, receive money from them and trust them with our general finances. Tellers do so many things for us as a bank and us as customers. Some things we see and others we don’t. That is why it is important to give them recognition, especially when recognition is due.

Here at Sunrise Banks we are celebrating Teller Appreciation Week October 5th-9th. Why do we recognize Teller Appreciation Week? Because they’re awesome! And because they deserve it!

I work at the customer service desk and from my seat I see and hear a lot of what goes on between the tellers and the customers. Every day I hear and see compassionate people who are eager to help and learn when the opportunity arises.

Next time you go to the bank and see your teller, I challenge you to celebrate with us and recognize tellers.
