We are honored to be recognized as one of the 'Best Places to Work' by Outside Magazine ... It means a lot to know that the company and the culture that we've all worked to create is truly special.
Carbondale, CO (PRWEB) August 02, 2012
Blue Tent Marketing today was named to Outside Magazine’s fifth annual “Best Places to Work” list. Blue Tent Marketing was ranked No. 7 out of 100 selected companies. Profiles of the top-ten-performing small, medium, and large companies will be published in the September issue of Outside magazine, available on newsstands August 14, 2012. The full list of 100 is available August 2 at outsideonline.com.
Outside’s “Best Places to Work” project celebrates the innovative companies setting a new standard for a healthy work-life balance. The list was compiled with the help of the Outdoor Industry Association and Best Companies Group. The yearlong selection process began with an outreach effort that identified a wide range of non-profit and for-profit organizations with at least 15 employees working in an office in the United States. Participating companies were sent confidential employee-satisfaction surveys and employer-questionnaires to collect information about benefits, compensation, policies, job satisfaction, environmental initiatives, and community outreach programs. The experts at the Best Companies Group then analyzed the results and selected the companies that best enable employees to pursue active lifestyles while also supporting their social and environmental contributions.
“We are honored to be recognized as one of the 'Best Place to Work' by Outside Magazine,” said Josh Lewis, VP of Marketing and Partner at Blue Tent. “Ultimately, this award goes to our team. It means a lot to know that the company and the culture that we've all worked to create is truly special.”
“We’re thrilled to celebrate all 100 of these forward-thinking companies,” says Michael Roberts, Senior Executive Editor of Outside. “They believe success depends on helping their employees live more active and fulfilling lives. The kinds of benefits they’re providing—free fitness classes, flexible hours, subsidized healthy meals, lots of time out of the office—result in a more productive and engaged staff.”
