When CEO Amy Johnson and her team won the prestigious Rise of the Rest competition, it was clear. The world was ready for LifeLoop. And, five years later, the technology is not only making lives better externally, but rewarding hard-working employees inside company walls.
LifeLoop, located in Omaha, isn't your typical start-up environment. Sure, there are company outings, a laid-back vibe, and people wear many hats. But the biggest perk for working at LifeLoop is the result of the technology itself.
"Let's face it - in today's world, people are at their jobs more often than not, so people want to be a part of something they're proud of when they go home," said Joey Carney, a key member of LifeLoop's sales team. "Especially with Millennials these days. More important than pay is a job where they're making a difference."
They sure are making a difference - not only here in the Silicon Prairie - but nationwide.
LifeLoop is an all-in-one platform for senior living communities. The technology connects residents, families and staff real time on everything that goes on inside the community. Ranging from daily activities, meals, transportation, and maintenance updates, often times these are accompanied with photos as well. Residents feel they're one touch away from reaching staff - or family and friends. Family members can more easily monitor the activities of residents.
The company was just three employees when they entered the Rise of the Rest competition, a kickstarter of sorts that rewards promising companies in smaller tech hubs with grants. LifeLoop won the Midwest division, and the $100,000 prize set the wheels in motion for the company's growth today.
Now, the company has 12 employees, and Carney says they plan to double in size again in the next two years.
As you might expect, LifeLoopers are empowered by their impact. After all, they work at a place where they're making lives better. But it's not just changing lives with keystrokes. Employees regularly go out into the community and spread goodwill as a team.
Carney tells stories of how LifeLoopers take part in Cupid Crew - where they take roses and other gifts to lonely seniors during the holidays. If it's not volunteering in the community as a group, then team members are hanging out on team-building events like retreats, football watching parties and happy hours.
Who is the perfect LifeLooper? That's not always apparent. Carney said often, they hire a great person, and then find a role for them within the company. But, generally, people with lots of high energy and a positive vibe are great fits.
"We look for people who can wear a lot of different hats," Carney said. "We also want people who have passions outside of work. If all you do is focus on work, you're gonna get stressed out. Whether it's volunteering, or being in a club - we always look for someone interested in many things besides just work."
"And of course, the ultimate benefit - we want people who want to make a difference. It's a close-knit team, where everyone can have input on product and feedback. And the rewards that come with changing lives through your life's work goes a long, long way to making people here happy."
