WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

As a social media research firm who spends time uncovering audience needs, Fizziology understands what motivates a Millennial workforce. 85% of Fizziology's staff is under 30 and spans offices in Indianapolis, LA, Nashville and Louisville. An active company culture coupled with a variety of employee engagement programs has contributed to low turnover and rapid growth. The founders communicate the company's goals, desires and financial state frequently. They keep an open-door policy and strive for honesty and transparency in all situations. Rather than a set of 'rules', Fizziology manages by sharing values that are important to the company. Whenever someone fails to live up to those values, they're coached in Communication, Ownership, Decision Making, and Leadership When the team brainstorms on client campaigns, everyone's voice is heard, regardless of seniority. Some of the team's best creative ideas come from its youngest hires Employees are encouraged to map their goals and design their ideal position. Management works to create a personalized map of how to achieve these goals and how they align with the company's larger vision, giving them a document to measure progress against through the year. The team builds each other up, spends the necessary time to train, and provides feedback.

WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

IST Research is a family of like-minded individuals that creates technology to address human security challenges, including the fight against human trafficking and occurring around the world. Our technology, Pulse, aims to identify and communicate effectively with at-risk populations in disconnected areas. Every day, employees at IST Research are continuing to develop Pulse with the sole mission of providing a voice to the voiceless. The IST family consists of software developers, military veterans, social scientists, data scientists and a corporate team operating in a distributed environment. This allows employees to live and work in the places they choose, whether that be in a different time zone, or just down the street from the local 'IST Cafe,' a shared workspace where any IST employee is welcome. Communication is an integral part of working in a distributed environment, and IST has found Slack to be one of the most incredible tools for maintaining transparent communication between team members, while also allowing people to express their individuality and build comraderie. IST has over 260 channels for discussing specific projects with teams, sharing information with the whole company, and even to share fun stories and pictures of our furry friends or talking about robots!

WHY WE THINK WE'RE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK

Empowering our teams to build a culture that’s collaborative ensures alignment with our twin, complementary missions of being both the best possible partner for each of our clients, while being the best place to work for as many employees as possible.

Wheelhouse offers typically solid benefits like 4% 401k match, 100% medical, gym memberships and free snacks. But, there are two examples that highlight why we’re one of the top U.S. private companies:

- One way we put values into action is through quarterly “Generosity Days” during which all employees use the day (with pay) for the sole purpose of providing service to the organizations and causes they care about in our communities. Plus, the company adds donations of cash or goods to the organizations that we help

- Every employee has a monthly “Joy Fund” - $50 that can be spent on anything that brings joy to a Wheelhouse employee or client. Joy funds have been used for everything from opera tickets or noise-cancelling headphones to weekly housecleaning for someone who just needed a break
