Due to the busy nature of the business—namely, providing IT services for the federal government—it's common for employees to feel more attached to the government customer where they work than with the company. This is why n-Link does its best to provide a government-friendly experience. "We've also created benefits that are mapped to the federal government's benefits, so that when we're working with government people, there's no us and them," says Sandra Green, CEO of n-Link. "We often hire former government employees because they have an understanding of the government." n-Link offers an All Employee Share Plan (ESOP) and a generous 401K plan, but n-Link's most significant perk is its transparency, keeping its employees constantly engaged thanks to an employee-run committee that serves the needs of executives and employees alike.
