Namasté Solar has been selected as one of OUTSIDE’s Best Places to Work 2014. Each year, OUTSIDE recognizes the top 100 companies in the United States that help their employees strike the ideal balance between work and play. These companies encourage employees to lead an active lifestyle, are eco-conscious, and prioritize giving back to the community. The entire list of winners appears online at

To find the best places to work in the United States, OUTSIDE conducted a rigorous eight-month vetting process in partnership with the Best Companies Group to assess the policies, practices, and demographics of hundreds of companies, and went straight to the employees to hear about factors like corporate culture, role satisfaction, work environment and overall employee engagement. The Best Places to Work list represents the cream of the crop: companies who cultivate a comfortable and collaborative workplace, enable their employees to enjoy the great outdoors and take pride in their roles in the community and the environment.

“If you’re considering a career change or searching for your dream job, OUTSIDE’s Best Places to Work list is the first place to look,” said OUTSIDE Executive Editor Michael Roberts. “These companies set the standard for workplaces that really value their employees and offer an experience that’s fulfilling inside and outside the office.”

“We are thrilled to make the list of OUTSIDE’s Best Places to Work for the second year in a row,” said Blake Jones, President and CEO of Namasté Solar. “As an employee-owned cooperative, we collectively decide what makes a healthy and happy workplace. As part of finding that balance, we don't just measure profit in terms of dollars, but also in terms of employee morale, our community involvement, our impact on the environment and customer satisfaction. For us, our progressive, flexible, employee-friendly policies are an integral part of our success.”
