An Overland Park information technology staffing agency has been recognized as one of the best young companies to work for by a small business consulting specialist.

The nexus ITgroup was honored by turnstone, a unit of the Steelcase office furniture company.

The company was one of 15 recognized out of hundreds of candidates for establishing a “creative and thriving work environment for their teams,” according to a news release from turnstone.

Also on the list was Hoola.io, which operates an online event marketing platform. Hoopla is based in Kansas City, Kan.

Following a nationwide search, the 15 companies ranged from social media to a fitness and health startup. “These companies were nominated by industry leaders and peers, partners, customers or other professionals who witnessed their success in building a place where everyone wants to work,” said Peter Cappelli, a professor of management and director of the Center for Human Resources at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.
