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 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.
"Coverity has always focused on providing the right work environment - knowing that the reason people choose to work with us is an intersection of the challenges we offer, the caliber of the employees we hire, the respect for their life outside of work and a work environment that makes our employees want to be here," said Carol MacKinlay, vice president of Administration for Coverity. "We set our standards high in all these areas, and are honored to be chosen for Outside Magazine's 'Best Places to Work' list in 2013."
"We're proud to publicize the efforts of these 100 companies," said Christopher Keyes, editor for Outside Magazine. "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."
