ReadyTalk Rock ClimbingReadyTalk today was named to Outside Magazine’s sixth annual “Best Places to Work” list. ReadyTalk was ranked number five out of 100 selected companies. The full list of the top-ten-performing small, medium, and large companies is available 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 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.

The list will also pinpoint the companies based on location, highlighting the “Best Places To Work” in the West, the Mountains, the Midwest and South, and the Northeast.

“At ReadyTalk, we take a long-term approach to building a company that is renowned for great products and outstanding customer service.  Healthy, engaged employees are the key to us sustaining success over time,” said Dan King, CEO, ReadyTalk. “Our employees have many passions beyond what they do for ReadyTalk.  We strive to hire people whose passions align with their role in the company, and we also do our best to accommodate people’s personal needs so that our employees can bring their best to work every day over the long haul.”

“We’re thrilled to celebrate all 100 of these forward-thinking companies,” says Michael Roberts, Senior Executive Editor of Outside. “They believe success depends on helping their employees live more active and fulfilling lives. The kinds of benefits they’re providing—free fitness classes, flexible hours, subsidized healthy meals, lots of time out of the office—result in a more productive and engaged staff.”

In addition to traditional benefits, ReadyTalk employees enjoy unique health and wellness perks like:

  • Up to $600 per employee for fitness activities, plus athletic apparel and gear
  • Yoga offered twice a week
  • On-site gym and locker room
  • Wellness programs, including massage, acupuncture and chiropractor, offered in the office
  • Kitchens stocked with snacks, fruits and vegetables
