Bend, OR: G5, the leader in data-driven marketing in the property management sector, has been recognized in OUTSIDE’s Best Places to Work of 2016. Each year, OUTSIDE recognizes the top 100 companies in the United States that help their employees strike the ideal balance between work and play. These companies encourage employees to lead an active lifestyle, are eco-conscious, and prioritize giving back to the community. Created in conjunction with the Outdoor Industry Association and Best Companies Group, the list of winners appears online here.

“We are lucky to have the amazing team that we have,” says Dan Hobin, Chief Executive Officer of G5.  “Promoting ‘balance in life’ and providing an environment that enables our team to thrive has been a key tenant of our growth and success. From the day our doors opened, we’ve made it a priority to create a work environment where people are empowered to do their best work, while fully enjoying this beautiful place we call home.”

“This year’s list of Best Places to Work highlights employers who go above and beyond for their staff,” said OUTSIDE Online Editor Scott Rosenfield. “Included are organizations that emphasize a healthy work life balance and promote, encourage and reward employees to live active and healthier lives.”

To create the best places to work 2016 list, OUTSIDE started by comparing employers to five core categories, reflecting the magazine’s values and focus: Adventure/Travel, Wellness, Culture, Gear, and Media. OUTSIDE then conducted a rigorous vetting process in partnership with the Best Companies Group to assess the policies, practices, and demographics of hundreds of companies.

Powered by employee workplace reviews and taking into account factors like corporate culture, job satisfaction, work environment and overall employee engagement, the Best Places to Work list represents only the top companies that are not only empowering but also encouraging their employees to live better, healthier and more active lives.

“Last month we came in first place in the Business Commute Challenge which is a competition among local businesses to rethink their commute options and drive less,” says Hobin. “In addition to the bigger community and seasonal events we’re part of, there are several wellness options we make available to employees on a regular basis such as 15-minute massages, organic vegetable delivery right to the office, and Humm kombucha taps to name a few.”
