Bringing eGovernment Services to the People of Hawaii
Hawaii Information Consortium (HIC) is proud to be one of Hawaii’s Best Places to Work for the third year in a row. We asked some of the team...
Why is HIC the best place to work?
Russell– One of the best things about working at HIC is that we actually solve problems for a huge number of people. In previous jobs, I helped make transactions for corporations more efficient, but in most cases no one actually saw the work that we did. At HIC we are helping the state and counties with services that hundreds of thousands of people use each year. People I talk to may not know about HIC, but they definitely know our services, from Annual Business Reports to Tax Filings to Licensing. I love that we make the business of government easier for so many.
Janet– We help to connect people with Hawaii government. HIC is a private company with a very public purpose: developing, managing, and maintaining web-based applications that make working with state and county government easier for the people of Hawaii. As architect, builder, and manager of the State of Hawaii’s official website (hawaii.gov), HIC works closely with state and county partners, bringing important public services online to more than 300,000 individual Hawaii residents and over 80,000 businesses.
Ernest– We design and build great web apps and websites, and there’s always something new to learn. We build customized online applications, and we are constantly creating and innovating – from cool mobile apps to fully Responsive web designs. It’s exciting to be part of HIC and moving Hawaii’s web into the future.
DeAnna– At HIC, we are ‘ohana. Our team leaders and the company really take care of us as employees. We receive awesome benefits including wellness and fitness programs, beach outings, company hikes, and pau hana activities. And you’ll often find us spending time together after work and during the weekends. My coworkers are like a second family, and I can always count on them as friends too.
Rosie– I am so very proud that we give back to the community. In 2012, HIC participated in 13 events including beach cleanups, athletic events, growing mustaches for Movember, recycling shoes, clearing trails, and cleaning fishponds. We’ve adopted families during the holidays, held coin drives for the SPCA, and used the proceeds from our office recycling to adopt two amazing bomb sniffing, landmine detecting rats in Africa!
