Celebrate Good Times: IntelliGenesis Named #1 Top Workplace by Baltimore Sun
At IntelliGenesis, our people are our #1 priority – and we believe that’s why we were named the #1 Top Workplace in the Small Business Category by the Baltimore Sun. We pride ourselves on being a family-friendly, employee-first business and while we don’t need the recognition to keep doing what we’re doing, it sure doesn’t hurt for the rest of the world to know how much we advocate for and value our people. IntelliGenesis has earned a place in the Top Ten listing for the past six years, culminating with our #1 win this year. And we have our people to thank.
“Each and every one of our employees are the reason we continue to be voted a Top Workplace and, in particular, our big win this year,” President & CEO Angie Lienert said. “It’s a two-way street. They give us their very best every single day and in turn, we make sure they’re happy, from feeling fulfilled in their career to enjoying the day-to-day aspects of being a part of the IG family.”
A huge part of the reason why IG has consistently been named a Top Workplace – which is based off of survey responses taken by the workforce – is our commitment to the mission. While our work day in and day out supports the mission, we also have a unique commitment to our nation’s veterans. As a veteran of the United States Air Force, Angie has made a point to not only hire veterans but to participate in programs specifically targeting transitioning veterans.
Beyond the work that IG does for the veteran community, we continue to put all of our employees first, making a commitment to them and viewing them as people and not just another employee ID. We support and facilitate continuing education and trainings to make sure they not only excel in their fields but also continue to feel fulfilled in their role. We recognize talented people and put in the work to match their skills and goals with our needs. It’s a win/win.
In addition to the company’s big win, Angie was also directly recognized for her success. She was given the Top Leadership Award for the Small Business Category, an honor she’s very familiar with; Angie has repeatedly been recognized for her leadership, as the 2017 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year, a 2016 Veteran-Owned Business of the Year Silver Stevie Award winner, and a 2014 DAV Outstanding Small Employer of the Year.
“I’m honored to be given the Top Leadership Award this year,” Angie said. “But at the end of the day, it all comes back to our people. Without them, none of this would have been possible.”
At the end of the day, there’s one word that describes our team at IntelliGenesis and why we believe we continue to be named a Top Workplace: Family. After all, that’s exactly how we feel about one another – and exactly why we’re committed to each other’s success and happiness.
