Eagle Creek (eaglecreek.com), a leading maker of travel gear, luggage and accessories, was named to Outside magazine's (outsideonline.com) second annual “Best Places to Work” list. Out of hundreds of companies considered, Eagle Creek was ranked in the top 20. The full list and related story will be published in the May issue of Outside magazine.

“We're honored to be included in this short list of great companies,” said Steve Barker, Founder and President of Eagle Creek. “It's the dedication and passion of my fellow Creekers that makes Eagle Creek such a good place to come everyday.”

Outside's “Best Places to Work” list was compiled with the help of the Outdoor Industry Association (outdoorindustry.org) and Best Companies Group (bestcompaniesgroup.com). 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 the United States. Participating companies were then sent a confidential employee-satisfaction survey and employer-questionnaire to collect information about benefits, compensation, policies, job satisfaction, environmental initiatives, and community outreach programs. All of the results were analyzed by Best Companies Group experts, who selected the 30 companies that best enable employees to balance productivity with an active, eco-conscious lifestyle.

“These 30 companies share a common belief: that the secret to success in any economy is empowering employees to live balanced lives and remain committed to their communities and the environment,” said Michael Roberts, Executive Editor of Outside. “Our winners know that happy workers are good for the bottom line.”

Eagle Creek's company perks include paid volunteer opportunities, and unique social activities - including an annual horseshoe tournament, cook-offs and various other events throughout the year.
