ST. LOUIS, MO – (June 25, 2018) At an awards ceremony held last Thursday at The Palladium St. Louis, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch named software development company Coolfire Solutions as a 2018 Top Workplace for the Greater St. Louis area.

“We are honored to be nominated by our employees for this award. Knowing that it was their positive feedback that landed us on the list, makes the recognition even more meaningful “ said Don Sharp, Coolfire Solutions CEO. “The St. Louis technology job market is highly competitive. We compete with much larger companies for the area’s top talent. Our excellent benefits package and perks help us attract employees, but we think it is the thrill of working on cutting-edge technology that sets us apart. The team takes pride in the technology it delivers to soldiers and first responders working at the edge of operations.”

The Top Workplaces honor is based on employee nominations received by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Employees of nominated companies are surveyed by Energage LLC, a third-party research partner and provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. More than 1,200 companies were nominated in 2018 representing over 77,000 St. Louis employees.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”
