Urbana, IA (PRWEB) June 18, 2014
E-commerce company Clickstop has been recognized for the second consecutive year as one of the Coolest Places to Work in the Waterloo/Cedar Rapids/Iowa City area by the Corridor Business Journal (CBJ). This year, the company topped the list landing the #1 spot for all companies in the Corridor.
Clickstop’s owner and CEO, Tim Guenther, along with his family and 26 employees, received the award at the ceremony on June 17th at the Cedar Rapids Marriott. The event was run by the CBJ and sponsored by the Eastern Iowa Airport, the Marriott and Skywalk Group. Twenty-four Corridor-based businesses were honored in Small (20 or fewer employees), Medium (21-99 employees), and Large (100+ employees) categories.
“We have been committed to our culture since day one,” said Guenther. “Being voted the Coolest Place to Work is the best recognition a company can get. We find great people and give them the freedom to chase their dreams and have fun.”
The Coolest Place to Work list recognizes engaging, fun and rewarding workplaces. The companies chosen were selected through an application and employee satisfaction survey. At least 50% of employees in the nominated companies had to participate in the survey to qualify. The questions included a range of topics from work and life balance, leadership style, flexibility, communication, compensation, and career opportunity.
Clickstop was founded in 2005 when Guenther launched the company’s first- and now largest online retail store- USCargoControl.com. The company has received numerous awards for growth, including five consecutive years on the CBJ’s Fastest Growing Companies list and four years on Inc. Magazine’s Fastest Growing Companies in America list.
Clickstop now owns and operates eight online retail stores in various markets including moving supplies, cargo control, reflective insulation, organization solutions, and fasteners, with team members managing everything from product sourcing, merchandising, website development, sales, to order fulfillment and shipping.
“Our culture is our competitive advantage and recognition like this is especially exciting because it’s based on how our people actually feel about the company and the culture,” said Guenther. “Creating a great work environment is part of our business strategy. It’s an honor to be named the Coolest Place to Work and I can’t wait to see where this team takes us.”
