Meet the organization: Vocera Communications was founded in 2000 by three entrepreneurs who wanted to create a better way to communicate with fellow employees. They laid the groundwork to put teamwork and collaboration at the heart of Vocera's mission, culture and vision. Now, Vocera's communications solutions are used by 1,300 organizations worldwide, and its 376 employees, who span the globe at satellite locations.
