"Quality work is paramount to I-ology. It's also what every person that has ever worked for I-ology loves about the work that we produce. It's really always been a major element of our brand, "explained Bear as one of the keys to I-ology's success.
Bear also explained the importance of company culture and company ownership, "I evaluated ways to develop a culture and a company that people wanted to work for. The generation of today is so smart, and so entrepreneurial. I believe that type of talent truly wants flexibility, adaptability, and ownership in addition to delivering great work for great clients."
I-ology has received numerous awards over the past 16 years and most recently was named one of the "Best Places to Work" in Phoenix Business Journal's 2012 ranking of Valley companies, which Bear credits to a rigorous hiring process that emphasizes employee integrity and a drive to be the best.
"It's not just about exponential growth, but smart and purposeful growth," Bear said. "It's really fun to see people shine and take the business to the next level."
