Announcing Outside's 2011 Best Places to Work

Best Places to Work, Outside Magazine Buy the September Issue—on Newsstands Soon

Well, a few of them, anyway—just to start off with. As part of Outdoor Retailer, taking place right now in Salt Lake City, we’re handing out certificates to the companies that made our list and are attending the convention. The remaining companies on our 50 Best Places to Work list will be unveiled in our September issue, which hits newsstands August 16th. To all the winners, congratulations. We had more applicants this year than ever. To readers, start updating your résumé. We’ve never been more inspired by companies's commitment to offer their employees a healthy work/life balance: floating “Powder Days,” Beer Cart Fridays, a 72,000-square-foot fitness center (and cash rewards for working out in it), six-month sabbaticals, and company-paid trip to the Olympics. Seriously.

So, without further ado, here are eleven of Outside’s top fifty companies to work for in America. Congratulations again!
