What it does: Delivers automated phone messages to improve communication between and among organizations
One Call Now provides a great service to the community, providing much-needed communication during unexpected events such as snow days, school closings or fires. Similarly, the offices of One Call Now also greatly emphasize volunteering and giving to the community. "If you volunteer for a school, or scout troop, or church, or a rotary club, or your kid's soccer team, you are paid three days a year to be a volunteer," says Leib Lurie, CEO of One Call Now. "We also match 100 percent of anything you give to that organization." One Call Now is also an open book with its employees, working closely with them on their profits, goals, and objectives, so no employee will "feel like a mushroom," according to Lurie. One Call Now also covers health benefits, gym memberships, and smoking cessation programs, should employees choose to quit. Oh, and dogs are welcome too.
