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 year-long selection process began with an outreach effort that identified a wide range of nonprofit 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.
This year’s “Best Places To Work” list highlights not only the Top 100 companies, but will also spotlight those on the list that offer the best perks, including “Fitness-Friendly” companies, those with the most liberal “Flex Time” policies, the “Best Travel Perks” and those with the “Best Office Culture.”
“We are honored to learn of the news from Outside and to be acknowledged alongside so many remarkable companies,” said President of Blue Tent Marketing, Peter Scott. “The recognition highlights a core principle at Blue Tent that a healthy balance between work and life is essential for success. We owe a special thank you to our talented team as well as our clients who continually challenge us to think beyond industry standards. We are very fortunate to live in the Rocky Mountains and even more fortunate to work with so many inspiring and dynamic individuals.”
"We're proud to publicize the efforts of these 100 companies," said Outside editor Christopher Keyes. "They each show a real commitment to creating active, healthy work environments and put a premium on innovative benefits. Year after year, Outside's Best Places to Work program demonstrates that America's most successful companies are the ones that consistently promote true work-life balance for their employees."
