Each year, CaseStack receives a survey from the Best Companies Group that allows each team member to evaluate the company and share their experience. For the 4th year in a row, our team has agreed that this is one of Arkansas’ Best Places to Work.

Yesterday some folks from our various departments traveled to Little Rock for an awards luncheon hosted by Arkansas Business Journal. We were honored to be in the room among other great companies and know that we were representing all of the great men and women that make CaseStack what it is.

“Our great people make us successful and for the fourth consecutive year our team has made us one of the Best Places to Work… I am proud of the recognition to CaseStack for the hard work it takes to grow and innovate.  You continue to make us better each year.” – Dan Sanker, President and CEO
