Corridor Business Journal recognizes local healthcare technology company for building an impressive company culture.

Cedar Rapids, IA — June 11, 2013 — At an awards banquet this morning, Geonetric, a leading provider of online solutions for the healthcare industry, was recognized as one of the Coolest Places to Work in the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City Corridor. Geonetric was one of 24 finalists recognized at the awards breakfast today at the The Hotel at Kirkwood. Geonetric ranked number #4 in the medium company category which includes organizations with 21–99 employees. 

“We’re honored to be recognized as one of the coolest places to work in the area,” says Eric Engelmann, president and CEO of Geonetric “We believe that building a fun and flexible work environment makes our employees more dedicated to fulfilling our company's mission. And this works for our company because we hire extremely bright, dedicated employees who trust each other to get their work done. We are accountable to each other, and it’s this trust in one another that really makes our casual and flexible culture successful.”

The Coolest Places to Work program identifies and honors local companies that have created the most engaging and rewarding work environments. This award is presented by the Corridor Business Journal. Companies could self-nominate for the award and honorees were selected based on satisfaction surveys sent to the organization’s staff.

As part of the Coolest Place to Work program, the Corridor Business Journal also ran a social media contest, encouraging the nominees to generate votes. Geonetric was the winner of the contest and is excited to donate the $500 award to the Catherine McCauley Center, a local charity that promotes the well–being and dignity of individuals in need by providing adult education and transitional housing for women.  

The Coolest Place to Work in the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City Corridor award adds to Geonetric’s already impressive list of achievements for workplace culture. Over the last year, Geonetric has been named one of Iowa’s Top Workplaces by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP and was honored with a 2012 Alfred P. Sloan Award for Excellence in the Workplace Effective and Flexibility.
