Intertech Ranks Second on Best Places to Work List for 2008

Intertech also placed on the INC 5000 list as one of the 5,000 Fastest Growing Companies in the United States

ST. PAUL—Aug. 20, 2008—Intertech, the leading software training and development company, was ranked Number Two on the 2008 “Best Places to Work” list published annually by the Business Journal of Minneapolis and St. Paul. The list is based on confidential surveys completed by company employees. Earlier this year Intertech was named a “2008 Minnesota Work-Life Champion” by the Center for Ethical Business Cultures.

“Intertech places high importance on creating a work culture that values and rewards everyone who works here. From extensive training opportunities and creative compensation plans to opportunities to work with leading companies and participate in philanthropy, we genuinely strive to support a balanced and rewarding lifestyle for our staff. These awards are gratifying because they tell us employees recognize and appreciate our efforts,” said Intertech CEO Tom Salonek.

In addition, Intertech recently was included on the “INC 5000” list, which ranks the 5000 fastest growing companies in the United States. A major $2 million contract with the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) puts the company on track for reaching its aggressive revenue target for 2008. Intertech was awarded the BCA contract to work on the technology supporting the state’s law enforcement and criminal justice process. The contract was part of a competitive bidding process, which included defining the project’s requirements.

Founded in 1991 by local entrepreneur Tom Salonek, Intertech, Inc. has grown from a one-person shop to the largest combined software developer training company and research-supported consulting firm in Minnesota and the upper Midwest. Intertech designs and develops software solutions that power Fortune 500 businesses, mid-sized companies, and state government. Intertech works with NASA, Wells Fargo, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, Intel, and other major companies around the United States helping them learn and use technology. Intertech recently was named a 2008 Minnesota Work-Life Champion by the Center for Ethical Business Cultures. Intertech’s technical team frequently publishes books in the Intertech Instructor Series through a partnership with Apress in Berkley, California. In addition, Intertech team members are frequently published in magazines, online websites, and are requested to speak at national conferences. The company’s propriety training materials, Intertech Professional Series Courseware, are now available for direct purchase by training companies, at www.intertechcourseware.
