St. Louis-based IP communications company fosters a culture of integrity, innovation, impact

ST. LOUIS, Mo., May 24, 2022–HomeWAV, the leader in providing simple, secure inmate communication and technology solutions, is excited to grow its business as a nationally certified Great Place to Work™ after a surge in business and product development over the past two years.

Based in Maryland Heights, Missouri, HomeWAV’s offerings providing inmate communication and technology solutions for the corrections industry has soared to new heights. With remote video visitation more important than ever, HomeWAV’s patented all-in-one technology has brought friends and family closer to incarcerated loved ones and provided support for correctional facilities across the country during an unprecedented time of staffing shortages. HomeWAV’s products and services have helped streamline jail operations during this time, reducing the burden on facility staff.

Earning a spot on the Great Place to Work™ listing in July 2021, one of HomeWAV’s biggest initiatives for 2022 is to invest in its people. Recently, the organization developed a comprehensive company handbook and expanded improved benefits such as increased paid time off, a new hybrid remote work policy, and parental leave. As a nationally certified Great Place to Work™, 94% of employees at HomeWAV say it is a great place to work compared to 59% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company.

“HomeWAV is a great place to work because we get to experience all the flexibility and interpersonal connection of a small company and enjoy the ever-expanding new opportunities for career growth in HomeWAV as the business grows, while receiving competitive benefits and pay of a much larger company,” said HomeWAV People Operations Manager Tim Schweiss. “It’s a place where you are valued individually and collectively, and we strive to create as many avenues as possible to make each employee feel comfortable and secure knowing that we treat your job with the same importance that you do.”

Growing from 44 employees in 2020 and 62 employees in 2021, the company now has 66 total employees helping to provide solutions to keep facilities safe and communities connected through its brand pillars of integrity, innovation, and impact. To match this growth, HomeWAV has plans to hire more employees this year across multiple departments, spanning from information technology, product development, and customer service to provide exceptional products and services for facility partners, friends, and family.

“There is no higher honor than to be recognized as a Great Place to Work™,” said HomeWAV CEO/President John Best. “We are a group of highly energetic and relentless problem-solvers. I’m proud of the incredible dedication and loyalty our team has to our company that has been the catalyst of our growth. I’m excited to see what our team can accomplish together as we grow our business.”
