Collaborative Culture Encourages Ongoing Learning, Growth and Support for Team Members Who Make Work Life Better for Today’s Mobile Workforce
BOSTON, Mass., June 27, 2018 – Motus, a technology company that is passionate about making work life better for mobile workers and their managers, today announced that it has been named one of Boston Business Journal’s “Best Places to Work” for the third consecutive year. An honoree in the Small Companies category, Motus recognizes the importance of having fun while doing exceptional work and was again recognized for its efforts to create the best work life possible for its team members.
Motus does this by enabling its people to be happy, smart and healthy in all of their endeavors – both inside and outside of work. The company established a Talent Accelerator Program (TAP), which is designed to bring in smart and tenacious entry-level talent to learn the business from the ground up, further develop skills, explore professional interests and take on pivotal roles within the organization. Those team members quickly build real expertise in the business and gain exposure to a number of potential career tracks inside the company – all of which enables the company’s growing millennial staff to build a customized career around where their passions lie. For more senior employees, Motus offers a company-wide professional development program that fosters both technical and soft skill development, including a SQL boot camp, a data analytics course and workshops on how to communicate effectively.
“Our whole business is dedicated to making work life better for mobile workers by creating technology that enables them to be more efficient, productive and profitable at work, and it’s no mistake that our culture is an extension of that,” said Craig Powell, Motus CEO. “Above all else, we strive to create a collaborative culture that encourages ongoing learning, growth and support both inside and outside of the office, and this recognition is a testament to our efforts. We’re honored to be named a Best Place to Work by the Boston Business Journal for the third consecutive year.”
Motus also takes care of its employees with perks to make life more fun and less stressful, including catered lunches, group spin classes, meditation workshops, happy hours, a 401k match, unlimited vacation and time off for service projects that the entire staff takes on as a team. In addition, Motus is one of the first companies in the country to recognize the importance of offering student loan relief to employees. The company’s commitment to helping young professionals manage their student debt is part of its broader mission to make work life better for its team. In September 2017, Motus expanded the benefit by partnering with Gradifi to reduce employees’ overall repayment time and lower the total cost of their loans.
Motus currently has nearly 100 employees in Boston, and a substantial presence in Milwaukee, where it was also named a “Top Workplace” by the Journal Sentinel this year. More information about the company culture and careers at Motus can be found at https://www.motus.com/our-culture/.
