New Orleans, La. October 4, 2016–For the third consecutive year, New Orleans’ CityBusiness newspaperselected mumms Software as one of the city’s 50 Best Places to Work. CityBusiness evaluated mumms, a software development company that serves hospice and palliative care facilities, based on its salaries, benefits, retention levels, advancement opportunities and employee satisfaction. The newspaper will honor all the companies chosen at an awards event in December, where CityBusiness will announce the top three large and small companies from the list.
This year marks the first time mumms entered the Best Places to Work competition in the large company category, which consists of companies with more than 50 employees. In the last three years, mumms tripled its staff to prepare to launch Hummingbird, a new software platform. In addition to rapid growth, the company maintains a five percent voluntary turnover rate, an average employment length of four years and has seen increased employee referrals for open positions.
“We’re creating a product that will revolutionize our industry, so we need to attract and retain cutting-edge talent and diverse minds,” said mumms Software CEO Leo Radosta. “I want our employees to have a positive work environment and feel like they’re part of a community of people passionate about technology and healthcare.”
In the past year, mumms reduced the cost of medical plan coverage and added weekly leadership workshops, as well as an employee recognition program. The company’s standard benefits package includes medical, vision and dental insurance; a 401K with a percentage match; and three catered lunches per weekat the company headquarters. To foster creativity and levity in the workplace, mumms administrative team plans events such as monthly birthday celebrations, coloring contests and puzzle breaks.
mumms seeks to ease the lives of hospice and palliative care providers and patients through user-friendly, industry-specific software.
