Applies “Culture-First Approach” to Delivering Exceptional Results and Making Team Members’ Work Life Better
BOSTON, Mass., June 23, 2017 – 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 a Boston Business Journal (BBJ) “Best Places to Work” for the second straight year. Motus believes that business growth is only possible if a company invests in a culture that values results achieved through collaboration. This strategy has paid off for Motus, with the company achieving double-digit growth year-over-year since inception and boasting a 98+% percent client retention rate.
Motus believes you should love what you do, and with whom you do it. In order to continue delivering exceptional business results, Motus is selective in hiring team members who align with its company culture. The company does this primarily through its Talent Accelerator Program (TAP), designed to customize career paths for recent graduates looking to join a fast-growing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company. The program guides new employees as they begin their journey to achievement, helping them grow as professionals, expand their knowledge of the company and industry – and find a position that truly fits their career goals. To keep employees updated on the latest industry skills and trends needed to continuously deliver a great product, Motus makes ongoing professional development a priority – from courses in data science to communication workshops and trainings in project management and leadership skills.
“It is an honor that the Boston Business Journal has recognized the efforts of our team for a second straight year,” said Kristen Dooley, Chief People Officer at Motus. “Our approach to having the best work life is built on the three pillars of WorkHappy, WorkHealthy, and WorkSmart. We do everything we can to make life more fun and less stressful for our team members, from Happy Hours and philanthropy days to a 401k match and student loan reimbursement. Staying healthy is important — when we feel good, we’re more creative, focused, and prepared to drive the business forward. Having the flexibility, tools, and empowerment to execute on our goals in the way that makes the most sense for us is critical. We trust our team members to work where they want, when they want, and how they want, and provide the structure and infrastructure to support innovation, collaboration, and career advancement.“
Motus takes care of its team members, from recent graduates to senior management, with perks that make work life better by easing the stresses that can distract from what really matters – having fun while doing exceptional work. The list is extensive, but included are: regular happy hours with a fully stocked café, catered lunches, group spin classes, yoga and meditation sessions, competitive compensation, aggressive 401K match and a first-of-its kind student loan reimbursement program.
“The BBJ’s Best Places to Work awards program is one of our most competitive programs in terms of how many companies participate each year and always one of our most successful in terms of how many people attend our awards event,” said Carolyn M. Jones, the Boston Business Journal Market President and Publisher. “This year well over 350 companies submitted surveys and once again we are extremely excited to be able to recognize these employers that clearly value their employees and go the extra mile to create great workplaces.”
Motus is passionate about leveraging technology to make work life better for mobile workers and their managers, so it’s especially committed to creating programs that help its own team members achieve a better work life. These programs encourage Motus employees to WorkSmart by self-managing their own success; WorkHappy by letting their curiosity, bravery and exceptionality shine; and WorkHealthy by staying active.
