"We're again grateful to Outside Magazine and the Best Companies Group for publicly acknowledging the positive work environment we've created," said Daniel W. Berger, President and CEO of Redspin. "Our culture is built on the value we place on each individual – including employees, clients and vendors. As an employer, Redspin promotes work/life balance and invests significantly in the health and welfare of our people. We're passionate about helping our clients and community while living life to its fullest."
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.
"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."
