For the second year in a row, Outside Magazine names Adventure Life one of the 50 Best Places to Work in the nation. We are truly honored. To see our company on a list with household names, globally recognized brands, and publicly traded companies really speaks to the quality work environment here at Adventure Life. We are very proud of our company; a group of folks who work as hard as they play, and have found a company that encourages both. Michael Roberts, the Executive Editor of Outside states:
These 50 companies come from a vast array of industries but they’re all following the same enlightened path. They’re successful businesses in a challenging economy precisely because they support a proper work-life balance. They know that benefits like on-site gyms and fitness classes, reimbursements for ski passes and sports racing fees, and support for community service efforts during work hours make their employees happier and thus more productive.
Outside’s “Best Places to Work” list was compiled with the help of the Outdoor Industry Association and Best Companies. The year-long 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 the United States. Adventure Life has 18 employees in our Missoula, Montana office. All participating companies were then sent confidential employee-satisfaction surveys and employer-questionnaires to collect information about benefits, compensation, policies, job satisfaction, environmental initiatives, and community outreach programs. Results were analyzed by Best Companies Group experts, who selected the 50 companies that strive to enhance their employees’ enjoyment of active endeavors, and environmental and social involvement.
Details will be in Outside's May issue - to hit stands April 20th. Until then, check out last year's write-up about Adventure Life and the other companies inspiring others to aim for the best.
