Outlaw ranked in top 40

BIG SKY – Outlaw Partners today was named to Outside Magazine’s sixth annual “Best Places to Work” list. Outlaw was ranked No. 40 out of 100 selected companies. The full list of the top-ten-performing small, medium, and large companies is now published online on at OutsideOnline.com/bestplacestowork.

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 nonprofit and for-profit organizations with at least 15 employees working in an office in the United States.

“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.”

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.

This year’s “Best Places To Work” list will highlight not only the Top 100 companies, but will also spotlight those on the list that offer the best perks, including “Fitness-Friendly” companies, those with the most liberal “Flex Time” policies, the “Best Travel Perks”, and those with the “Best Office Culture.”

“Simply put, we set up this company to capture and convey the lifestyles we lead daily,” said Outlaw CEO Eric Ladd. “You can do the same level and quality of business in Big Sky that you can do anywhere – in New York City or San Francisco. The big difference is that on our lunch breaks we don’t walk down to Starbuck’s, we go for a ride or walk down to a 30-foot waterfall.”
