Strong Focus on Career Development and Worklife Balance Encourages Team Members to Create Cutting-Edge Technology for Today’s Mobile Workforce
BOSTON, Mass., and MILWAUKEE, Wisc. – May 4, 2018 – Motus, the premier vehicle management and reimbursement platform, today announced that it has been named a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel “Top Workplace” in the midsize company category, recognized for its commitment to creating the best worklife possible for its team members. This is the fourth year Motus has been named a “Top Workplace” by the Journal Sentinel. The company previously ranked on the list in 2013, 2016 and 2017 when it was formerly known as Runzheimer.
Motus is dedicated to making mobile workers’ jobs more efficient by creating technology that enables them to be more productive and profitable at work – and its culture is an extension of that. The company’s culture encourages ongoing learning, growth and support both inside and outside of the office. Core to achieving this is through the Motus Talent Accelerator Program which is designed to bring in entry-level talent and help them quickly learn the business from the ground up, further develop skills, explore professional interests and take on pivotal roles within the organization. Through the program, team members build real expertise in the business and gain exposure to a number of potential career tracks inside the company – which enables its growing millennial staff to build a customized career around where their passions lie.
Additional career growth initiatives Motus offers include a company-wide professional development program that fosters both technical and soft skill development, including an SQL boot camp, a data analytics course and workshops on how to communicate effectively.
“Making work-life better for mobile workers is the purpose of our business at Motus. And, if we don’t love that purpose with our own people, what good is that purpose?,” said Craig Powell, Motus, CEO. “This is why it is especially important that we create the best worklife possible for our team members who wake up every day, ready to hit the ground running hard at the office.”
At the same time, Motus wants its hard-working people to enjoy coming into the office every day, so it offers perks to make life more fun and less stressful for its team members, including catered lunches, group spin classes, meditation workshops, happy hours, a 401k match and student loan reimbursement – 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 worklife 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 the loan.
Earlier this year, investment firm Thoma Bravo acquired and merged Motus and Runzheimer to create the market leading vehicle management platform. The combined organization – with approximately 2,000 customers and 220,000+ end users – is poised to better serve the rapidly-growing needs of the addressable fleet market and provide clients, ranging from brands such as Coke and Yuengling, to innovative startups, with significant alternatives to today’s “company car” or limited vehicle reimbursement options.
