Redspin Awarded Honor Second Year In A Row
CARPINTERIA, CA—April 5, 2010 – Redspin, Inc. today was named to Outside magazine’s (www.outsideonline.com) third annual “Best Places to Work” list. Redspin was ranked No. 24 out of 50 selected companies. The full list and related story will be published in the May issue of Outside magazine, available on newsstands April 13, 2010.
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 year-long selection process began with an outreach eort that identied a wide range of non-prot and for-prot organizations with at least 15 employees working in the United States. Participating companies were then sent condential employee-satisfaction surveys and employer-questionnaires to collect information about benets, compensation, policies, job satisfaction, environmental initiatives, and community outreach programs. All of the results were analyzed by Best Companies Group experts, who selected the 50 companies that strive to enhance their employees’ enjoyment of active endeavors, and environmental and social involvement.
“I joined Redspin three months ago and couldn’t be happier or more proud to be a part of the organization,” said Stacey Marshall, Director of Marketing. “The ‘work-hard/play-hard’ environment is evident from our bi-weekly beach work-outs, beach volleyball games and corporate ethos of giving 1% of our gross revenue to environmental charities.”
“These 50 companies come from a vast array of industries but they’re all following the same enlightened path,” said Michael Roberts, Executive Editor of Outside. “They’re successful businesses in a challenging economy precisely because they support a proper work-life balance. They know that benefits like on-site gyms and fittness classes, reimbursements for ski passes and sports racing fees, and support for community service reports during work hours make their employees happier and thus more productive.”
