RAPID CITY, S.D. - Jan. 15, 2014 - For the second year in a row, Black Hills Corp. has been
recognized as one of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces(TM) in the United States. The annual
award recognizes the top employers in the U.S. and Canada that display leadership and innovation
in engaging their employees. 

"We are honored to once again appear on this distinguished list," said David R. Emery, chairman,
president and chief executive officer for Black Hills Corp. "We continually strive to be among the
best employers in the United States, and while our journey toward that goal doesn't end with this
award, it does suggest that we continue to make significant progress." 

The Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces Awards panel of judges evaluated each applicant based on
eight elements of employee engagement, including communication, leadership, culture, rewards and
recognition, professional and personal growth, accountability and performance, vision and values
and corporate social responsibility.

"The Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces(TM) understand that employee engagement is not just a
buzz word, but that engaged employees provide businesses with a unique competitive advantage.
Companies that focus on employee success have better engagement and alignment with business
objectives and company values," said Achievers CEO, Patrick D. Quirk. "These companies serve as
role models for other businesses to engage their own employees and build success."

The panel of 14 judges included various academics and thought leaders on employee engagement, and
included representation from organizations such as the Society for Human Resource Management,
Human Resources Professionals Association, and Human Capital Institute and Northern California HR
Association.

Black Hills Corp. will be honored alongside other recipients at an awards gala on April 2, 2014,
in San Francisco, Calif.
