From the Company

Outside editors excerpted this information from the Employer Questionnaire submitted to the Best Companies Group.

Tabar is an OEM supplier of high-quality technical glove, mitten, gaiter, and accessory products to leading brands in the outdoor-sports, tactical, hunting-and-fishing, motorcycle, bicycle, and alpine-sports markets. Technical gloves and mittens as well as other accessories are researched, designed, developed, prototyped, and manufactured to client specifications.

The underlying spirit is that Tabar is a company that does the right thing because it’s the right thing to do. We allow for flex time and staggered work hours to help employees with long commutes or young children to care for. We encourage employees to exercise during work hours and allow them freedom to come and go during the day as they please. Emphasis is on doing a good job and not spending eight hours chained to a desk. We celebrate birthdays in each office with small celebrations for each employee.

We are completely open door and anyone can address the senior management on any issue at any time. We also hold world team meetings in various locations every other year. Past locations have included Cancun, Mexico; Vail, Colorado; Mount Hood, Oregon; the Catskill Mountains, in New York; and Scottsdale, Arizona.

We have summer hours for those who choose to participate from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Any employee who wishes to participate extends Monday through Thursday by 30 minutes and we close at 2:00pm on Fridays.
