Connectria Named as One of the Best Places to Work in St. Louis
"No Jerks Allowed" Creates a Happy Workplace and Happy Customers
ST. LOUIS, MO (April 19, 2010) - Connectria Corporation has been named as one of St. Louis' Best Places to Work within the St. Louis Business Journal's Annual edition.
Connectria received this distinction through anonymous employee surveys and impartial scoring of local businesses within the St. Louis area. Though a variety of employee perks were identified, such as company 401K contributions, employer paid medical/dental benefits, free soft drinks, juice and fruit, on-site fitness centers, flexible work schedules, annual $200 company apparel allowances, tickets to sporting events, etc., it was Connectria's guiding principle, "no jerks allowed", which sets it apart from all the others.
"We are very pleased to be recognized as one of St. Louis' Best Places to Work," noted Rich Waidmann, Connectria President and CEO. "We established "no jerks allowed" as one of Connectria's guiding principles to foster a culture of likeable employees with integrity and mutual respect. Though subjective, everyone knows what a jerk is," Waidmann added. "Embracing and promoting this principle tends to attract the right people, and this culture plays a significant role in maintaining our extremely loyal customer base."
A privately held company, Connectria has built its business through reinvesting profits and without equity financing. Connectria operates world-class Data Centers, Network Operations Centers, and Engineering Centers located in St. Louis, Missouri and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
