Because technology drives this content marketing and sales conversion company, Clearlink CTO Bruce Westenskow puts a premium on keeping its 30 IT workers happy. "I believe you create the right experience and environment, and you'll create a culture that will naturally drive the results you're after," he says.

The 10-year-old Salt Lake City employer offers a robust benefits package, including health insurance (with the company paying up to 100% of premiums), paid vacation, reimbursement for the cost of tuition and certifications, flexible hours and telecommuting.

Annual trips to Las Vegas for top performers are a big incentive, and the IT department's gaming area fosters on-the-job fun. Others perks empower IT staffers, such as a policy that allows developers to build their own development environments.

Techies enjoy the fast-paced, innovative work at Clearlink, says Carmen Harris, a technical project manager. "We don't stand still," she says. "There's always something new."
