August 1, 2013 (Portland, Ore.)—The Clymb, the outdoor industry’s fastest growing online retailer of gear and adventure travel, has been named to Outside Magazine’s annual “Best Places to Work” list for the second year in a row.
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 are selling an active, healthy and adventurous lifestyle and everything that goes along with it,” says The Clymb’s vice president of marketing, Mike Steck. “Providing our employees with the opportunity to live the very lifestyle we sell is essential for maintaining the integrity of our business and corporate culture. Being included in Outside’s Best Places to Work is an important honor for us.”
"We're proud to publicize the efforts of these 100 companies," said Outside editor Christopher Keyes. "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."
