Rochester, NY (PRWEB) April 01, 2015
The Democrat and Chronicle announced that CaterTrax has been named on the newspaper’s annual “Rochester’s Top Workplaces” list, ranking 26th in the small business category. CaterTrax is a leader in the catering management software industry and is the only enterprise software company on the list.
“My family has been in the food service industry for generations. I worked my way up from busser, to waiter, and eventually to management. At a young age I learned how integral every role was in the success of the family business and I carried that lesson with me to CaterTrax. We strive to behave as family that empowers every team member to contribute,” says Rich Rund, Co-founder and CEO at CaterTrax.
Since their start in 2004, CaterTrax has been cultivating a strong team of hungry, humble, and smart employees - affectionately called TRAXERS. CaterTrax has a growing team of 75 people and co-founders, Rich Rund and Dan Welch, have stayed dedicated to building a workforce that demonstrates hospitality that has kept CaterTrax true to its roots.
“What sets CaterTrax apart is our Service as a Software approach to technology that is realized through our knowledgeable and experienced staff that knows the meaning of demonstrating hospitality. Every employee we bring on board melds with our culture and drives our success,” Rich adds.
In a recent interview with Roc Growth, Rich described how CaterTrax’s hiring process is the core of their business. Rich carves out time to meet with candidates to ensure they share the CaterTrax core values. After joining the team, new TRAXERS are greeted with a unique corporate culture that actively promotes education, work/life balance, and volunteering. Companywide profit sharing emphasizes how the contribution of every employee upholds the success of CaterTrax.
