Our Vision of Shared Success

We are local professionals driven by our vision of shared success.

Baylake Bank was founded on the belief that our job is to create shared success between the 3 Circles of Customers, Shareholders, and Employees. We know that each circle can be divergent and have their own interests. Our job is to create balance and grow the space of shared success where the 3 Circles overlap. This is our Vision.

Our Core Values

What puts action behind the vision is our Core Values.  These are behaviors that all employees are expected to model.  Our Core Values are:

  • Be Real. 
  • Be Responsive. 
  • Be Personal. 
  • Be Memorable. 
  • Be Entrepreneurial.

10 words that help focus our actions so that we can bring the Vision to life.

Our Vision and our Core Values create a culture that has a bias toward action.  We hire potential and encourage people to make decisions in the best interests of the 3 Circles.  We expect people to create connections with customers, whether internal or external and work together to create a successful outcome.  We give people the opportunity to learn, grow and make a difference.  We choose to work here because we make a real difference to our customers and the community.

Foundation Inc.

"We know that we exist to serve our communities and that our presence makes a real difference"

Established in 2007, the Baylake Foundation focuses on supporting charitable organizations in all of the geographies where we have a presence.

  • No administration fees - 100% of monies given by employees goes directly back into our communities.
  • All recommendations for donations come from our employees. We do not ask for, nor do we accept, outside solicitations. The Foundation is truly employee-driven.

The intent of the NVP is to recognize volunteer needs in our communities, engage our employees to volunteer, strengthen volunteer initiatives, and work with local businesses to share best practices working together to support the people and organizations within the areas we live and serve.
