DENVER, Aug. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TrackVia today was named to Outside Magazine's fifth annual "Best Places to Work" list. The Denver-based developer of a do-it-yourself business application builder was ranked No. 22 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 will be available August 2 at outsideonline.com.
"Of all the awards we've won over the years for our product or customer service, this one ranks pretty high on the list," said Pete Khanna, CEO of TrackVia. "This recognition validates our work to create a company and culture that celebrates passion – passion for our work and passion for our lives outside the office."
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.
In past years, Outside has highlighted 50 outstanding companies. This year, Best Companies Group determined that there were so many top-quality applicants that the list needed to be expanded. Outside editors agreed, and doubled the size of the list.
"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."
The notable benefits highlighted about TrackVia included its "Personal Passion Scholarship," providing every employee up to $500 a year to pursue a personal passion outside the office, be it skiing, travel or cooking. TrackVia also covers 100 percent of its current employees medical and dental insurance. For more information about TrackVia, including open job opportunities, visit www.trackvia.com.
