Holmdel-based Vonage, the VOIP communications company, won “The Smartest Company in America” award from Lincoln, the luxury auto brand.
To achieve this goal, employees took quizzes based on reasoning exercises and participated in group challenges.
For the employees' efforts, Lincoln donated $100,000 to the American Red Cross Jersey Coast Chapter on behalf of Vonage employees.
“The activities included reasoning exercises, intuition, puzzle-solving, memory and computation,” said Dave Rivers, Lincoln U.S. Marketing Communications Manager. “Touchscreen tablets with software designed exclusively for the ‘Lincoln Intelligence Project’ measured individual and group challenges and promoted teamwork.”
Vonage held an event to present employees with a symbolic check.The funds will be used for Sandy disaster relief, services to the armed forces, blood services and health and safety training, a spokesperson for the Red Cross said.
