Culture: Athletes, foodies, tree huggers (and many crossbreeds)—that’s who works at Clif. Few teams anywhere enjoy the kind of 360-degree benefits that propel Clif employees: dozens of free fitness classes in the office gym and studios, up to $350 in race-fee reimbursement, an organic cafeteria with discounted meals (including take-home dinners), a $500 stipend for buying a commuter bike after a year on the job … the list goes on. “We strive for a great office culture, because sustaining our people is one of our five bottom lines,” says Jennifer Freitas, human resources manager. “It’s one of the ways we measure success.”
