BrainStorm, Inc. Recognized in OUTSIDE’s Best Places to Work for the Fifth Year in a Row

SALT LAKE CITY, UT (November 16, 2016) – BrainStorm, Inc. has been selected as one of OUTSIDE’s Best Places to Work 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. The complete list of Best Places to Work is available at Outside Online.

John Wade, one of the Principals at BrainStorm, said this about BrainStorm's culture and the list, "It doesn’t take long to learn that, in life, the people you share it with make all the difference. I get to come to work every day ready and eager to get in the game with this awesome team at BrainStorm—they come to play and play to win. It’s invigorating. We couldn’t be more exited, as well, to suit-up with Outside magazine and the inspiring companies on this list. It feels a lot like charging through untracked powder or going over the edge on a rappel line. My heart’s pumping!”

“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.”

To find the best places to work in the United States in 2016, OUTSIDE started by creating five company categories that reflect 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. Outside’s Best Places to Work 2016 was driven by employee reviews of their workplaces, taking into account factors like corporate culture, role satisfaction, work environment and overall employee engagement. The Best Places to Work list represents the cream of the crop: companies that are empowering their employees to live bigger, better lives.

BrainStorm’s work environment isn’t the only award-winning aspect of this fast-paced company.
