What’s so cool about fraud prevention? A lot, apparently. While being cool is not one of our business priorities, it certainly is a badge of honor we wear proudly. And now, we’re thrilled that the folks at MinneInno agree that our work, our people and our office (not to mention a random pirate who posed with us at a St. Paul Saints game) are super cool.
What makes us the coolest? There’s the requisite “cool-office” amenities, like a brand-new rooftop deck, complete with seating and a grill for raucous office luncheons or happy hours. But coolness isn’t about the visible trappings for ID Insight: it’s a reflection of the way we approach every challenge with creativity, collaboration and (of course) cool.
The coolness starts with our recruiting process, which is designed to cast a wide net for talent and champion workplace persity, and runs throughout our entire company culture. With such a tightly-knit team, it’s essential for everyone to care deeply about the company’s work, customers and each-other. That’s why we foster mutual respect and collaboration every day by constantly seeking team feedback and engagement.
Recognition also makes us cool, especially when we’ve got our very own “MacGyver Award,” a coveted framed photo of Minnesota’s own Richard Dean Anderson a.k.a TV’s MacGyver, a trained scientist who worked as a secret agent to solve life and death situations. The award is given to a different employee every quarter who exhibits ingenuity and resourcefulness to solve a critical business problem. We may take our work seriously, but our team never takes itself too seriously.
Coolness comes in many forms, and while ID Insight has the standard accoutrements of cool on the surface, it also permeates every piece of our business. We’re cool because of what we do, not just because we’ve got bike parking in the office.
We’re looking forward to celebrating with other nominees on Sept. 13 and angling for a spot as a category winner. In the meantime, please cast your ballot for ID Insight in the MinneInno Coolest Companies reader’s choice poll. And don’t forget to stay cool!
