This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the country that not only create a great work environment but also promote an environmentally friendly business process and create a work-outdoor life balance for employees.
"We are honored to be among this elite group of companies in our industry that strive towards excellence in business practices, which includes all facets of business from the employee, to retail and to manufacturing," said Erik Wegner, manager of Human ReSources for Osprey Packs. "This great honor reaffirms our ongoing efforts to conduct business with great integrity, both on the employee and consumer level."
Companies from across the nation entered the two-part process to determine Outside Magazine's Best Places to Work. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall process, from performing the analysis to finalizing the rankings.
