Outside Magazine Celebrates Best Places to Work
The annual list celebrates U.S.-based companies that lead in their commitment to employee engagement as well as wellness. Moreover, Outside magazine presents the list in collaboration with the Outdoor Industry Association.
What’s more, GoPro ranks No. 36 overall while earning the No. 1 ranking for companies with more than 250 employees based in the United States. Its ranking was based on the company’s commitment to remote + hybrid work as well as employee wellness.
GoPro’s flexible, remote work policy headlines its employee-first approach that helped it land the No. 1 ranking for large businesses. For example, GoPro employees can work as much or as little in a physical office as they like. They are also encouraged to relocate for whatever reason—whether to pursue their life dreams, get closer to family, or otherwise—without sacrificing their current compensation.
Notably, GoPro’s unlimited time-off policy; commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB); as well as competitive wellness-focused benefits also contribute to the recognition.
