When Ergo Mechanical Industrial (EMI), a Georgetown, Kentucky-based manufacturer, was seeking a technology solutions partner, they looked no further once they had connected with Coastal Cloud. The information technology company has its headquarters in Florida, with solution center hubs in Louisville, KY, and Colorado. Coastal Cloud was able to provide expertise to EMI in an affordable package, said Chuck Mix, EMI’s President and Chief Operations Officer.
When you think of harnessing the power of technology, the first industry sector that leaps to mind might not be nonprofits. But Coastal Cloud, a cloud-based information technology services and business consulting firm, is an organization that appreciates that it’s not just Fortune 500 businesses that have been transformed by the digital era – or can benefit from it.
For Lori Lenehan at Coastal Cloud, harnessing the power of technology to assist healthcare sector clients is a job with both challenges and significant rewards. As Managing Director, Healthcare, Lenehan said the challenging aspect is that healthcare is such a rapidly evolving and fluid industry. However, she believes in Coastal Cloud’s ability to make a positive change for a wide variety of healthcare clients, from payers to patients.
Sara Hale discovered her strength behind a keyboard and monitor during computer science classes in college, which captured her interest and sparked a love affair with technology that evolved into a lifelong career.
Cloud-based technologies have helped a number of companies experience tremendous growth — but using those technologies isn’t always the easiest of tasks. That’s where a company like Palm-Coast-based Coastal Cloud comes in.
For Sara Hale, Coastal Cloud’s co-founder and managing partner, seven solid years of traveling almost 100 percent of the time for the technology firm where she previously worked resulted in a non-existent work-life balance. She wanted room for her family in her life, so she and husband, Tim, also in the technology field, set out to try to create the kind of company where they themselves would want to work.
Today, Florida Trend magazine named Coastal Cloud #3 of the “Best Companies to Work For” in the 2017 mid-sized employers category. The annual Best Companies list is featured in the August issue of Florida Trendmagazine. One-hundred companies are ranked in small, medium and large employer categories.
Participating companies underwent an evaluation of their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The process also included a survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. To participate, companies had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and have been in operation at least one year.
“We are extremely proud to be ranked so high amongst a list of great companies,” says Sara Hale, co-founder and managing partner of Coastal Cloud. “We put as much focus on our company culture as we do our growth, work and client satisfaction. We greatly value the talent we have on our team and work diligently to maintain our unique environment.”
“What’s clear from our list is that amenities like free lunch or a game room at the workplace are not the things that make a great workplace. Those amenities are just part of the way companies reflect their cultures — it’s the culture of the company and the company’s ability to hire people who understand and embody the culture that creates a great workplace,” says Executive Editor Mark Howard.
The Best Companies To Work For In Florida program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group and is endorsed by the HR Florida State Council. Best Companies Group managed the registration, survey and analysis and determined the final rankings.
