Outside Magazine Once Again Names Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners One Of America’s Best Places To Work

August 9, 2012

SAUSALITO, Calif., Aug. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners (BSSP) was named in Outside Magazine’s fourth annual “Best Places to Work” list. This is the second consecutive year that BSSP has made the list. Profiles of the top-ten-performing small, medium, and large companies will be published in the September issue of Outside magazine, available on newsstands August 14, 2012. The full list of 100 is available 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 yearlong 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 United States. 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 outstanding companies. 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 honored to be recognized again by Outside Magazine for creating an environment and culture that attracts and retains top talent. We are grateful to all of our employees for helping BSSP achieve this honor,” said BSSP CEO Greg Stern.

“We’re thrilled to celebrate all 100 of these forward-thinking companies,” says 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.”

As one( )of America’s Best Companies to Work For, BSSP was noted for its promotion of outdoor activities like nearby kayaking, cycling, hiking and tennis, as well as staff basketball and soccer games. Its summer concert series, fitness benefits, dog-friendly environment, employee recognition programs and green initiatives all made BSSP a notable selection for Outside’s fifth annual Best Companies list. The agency was also named a “Best Place to Work” by Advertising Age magazine this year.
