Outside magazine selected companies from Portland, Bend and Eugene in its list of top 100 places to work in U.S.
The leading outdoor publication defined what makes the list as such:
All the outdoor access in the world doesn’t mean much if your job keeps you chained to a desk with no time to enjoy it. So to find the best places to work in the U.S. in 2015 and 2016, we started by creating five company categories that reflect Outside‘s values and focus: Gear, Adventure & Travel, Wellness, Culture, and Advertising. We then conducted a rigorous vetting process in partnership with the Best Companies Group and asked employees to review factors like corporate culture, policies and perks, role satisfaction, work environment, and overall employee engagement. The Best Places to Work list represents the cream of the crop—companies that empower their employees to live bigger, better lives.
The Oregon companies to make the list:
- Nemo Design of Portland at No. 7
- G5 of Bend at No. 76
- Ninkasi Brewing of Eugene at No. 81
- IDX Broker of Eugene at No. 84
- Deschutes Brewery of Bend at No. 95
Here’s what the magazine wrote about Nemo Design:
Portland-based agency Nemo Design has created ad campaigns for big names like Nike and Converse since its founding in 1999. Every week, the firm rents out an indoor skate park for lunch, invites whoever they feel like, and blows off steam on the ramps and rails. The company is near the Willamette River, and employees can take out the company boat every evening.
The No. 1 top place to work in the outdoor industry? GroundFloor Media in Denver.
