ANCHORAGE – Nerland Agency today was named to Outside Magazine’s fifth annual “Best Places to Work” list. Nerland Agency was ranked No. 28 out of 100 selected companies. Profiles of the top 10 performing small, medium and large companies will be published in the September issue of Outside magazine, available on newsstands Aug. 14. The full list of 100 will be available Aug. 2 at outsideonline.com.
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 year-long 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 UnitedStates. 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. In past years, Outside has highlighted 50 outstandingcompanies. This year, Best Companies Group determined that there were so many top-quality applicants that the list needed to be expanded. Outside editors agreed, and doubled the size of the list.
“We’re so pleased to be recognized for our everyday commitment to creating an outstanding workplace where our employee owners thrive personally and professionally for the benefit of our clients,” said Karen King, agency president and CEO. “What an exciting affirmation for our people — and the agency — that Nerland Agency has been ranked among the best of the best.”
“We’re thrilled to celebrate all 100 of these forward-thinking companies,” said 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.”
