Teamwork is a hallmark of the environment at NISC, a data-processing and billing company in Lake Saint Louis, Mo., where IT takes a team approach to handling everything from end-user support to software development. To make sure everyone feels like part of the NISC team, the CEO personally welcomes each new hire. And the company sponsors forums, social get-togethers and family events to encourage collaboration. Onsite workout facilities keep employees healthy, Ping-Pong lightens the mood, and NISC's Benevolence Fund gives people a way to help out co-workers in times of need.
