BEND, Ore. (November 16, 2015) – G5, the leader in maximizing digital marketing effectiveness for the property management sector, today announced it has been named to OUTSIDE Magazine’s Best Places to Work 2015. The entire list of 100 companies appears online here.

To uncover the best places to work in the United States, OUTSIDE began by developing five categories which are reflective of the magazine’s values: Adventure/Travel, Wellness, Culture, Gear, and Media. OUTSIDE then partnered with the Best Companies Group to conduct an evaluation process where hundreds of companies were assessed based on their demographics, policies, and practices. The process was largely driven by employees’ workplace reviews covering categories like corporate culture, role satisfaction, work environment, and overall employee engagement.

The Best Places to Work list represents companies that promote work-life balance for their employees, an active lifestyle, community involvement, and environmental responsibility.

“Our people are what make G5 the company that it is,” says Dan Hobin, co-founder and CEO of G5. “Most employees choose to live in Bend because of the lifestyle it provides – endless outdoor activities, community events, and Mt. Bachelor just twenty minutes away. Striking the right balance between work and play is important, and something we’re committed to, because it means healthier, happier, and more engaged employees.”

“The companies recognized in this year’s Best Places to Work list are the gold standard for stellar work environments that seek to empower their employees both in and out of the office,” said OUTSIDE Online Editor Scott Rosenfield. “The new categories in this year’s list serve to highlight outstanding workplaces in distinctive fields—making it all the easier for our readers to find their dream jobs.”

G5 offers health and wellness events, frequent team building activities and celebrations, reduced-cost gym memberships, rewards for green commuting, and weekly deliveries of fresh fruit and vegetables through a community-supported agriculture program.
