DES MOINES, IOWA (PRWEB) FEBRUARY 29, 2016
Prositions, Inc. has been selected as a finalist for Small to Medium Technology Company of the Year for the 11th Annual LWBJ Prometheus Awards by the Technology Association of Iowa (TAI). In 2013, Prositions won the Prometheus Award for Startup Company of the Year. The Prometheus Awards are designed to recognize organizations and individuals who have made a significant contribution to the technology and software industries. Prositions has been a strong supporter of TAI and an active participant in programs, like HyperStream, that encourage aspiring students to seek technology career opportunities in Iowa.
“We are very pleased and honored to be included on the Prometheus finalist list this year,” said Frank Russell, CEO and founder of Prositions. “Our senior programmers have mentored and coached HyperStream student interns as we developed new features for our latest software application. MentorString, solves some of the toughest problems organizations are having today with talent engagement and retention,” he continued. “Organizations are spending an incredible amount of money recruiting and onboarding new employees. If that high potential talent leaves within a few months or a year, the cost to the organization can be significant. Our software helps protect that investment by powerfully engaging employees from day one. Giving students an opportunity to work on groundbreaking technology, like MentorString, is a win-win for our company and the industry.”
Frank Russell has also been named a Prometheus Award finalist for CEO of the Year. Mr. Russell has been recognized numerous times as a serial entrepreneur and technology pioneer.
“Frank is a thought leader and innovator in the human resources and technology industries,” expressed Robin Salsberry, President of Prositions. “He not only motivates and inspires his team, but Frank challenges all of us to accomplish more than we ever thought possible. Many of us have worked in his former companies and some have even gone on to create their own successful startups or become leaders in other high-growth organizations. He’s a one person incubator and accelerator!”
The Prometheus Award winners will be announced on Thursday, April 14th.
