SALT LAKE CITY, UT (October 2, 2014) – BrainStorm, Inc. has been selected as one of OUTSIDE’s Best Places to Work 2014. 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 entire list of winners appears online at www.outsideonline.com/dreamjobs.
To find the best places to work in the United States, OUTSIDE conducted a rigorous eight-month vetting process in partnership with the Best Companies Group to assess the policies, practices, and demographics of hundreds of companies, and went straight to the employees to hear about 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 who cultivate a comfortable and collaborative workplace, enable their employees to enjoy the great outdoors and take pride in their roles in the community and the environment.
“If you’re considering a career change or searching for your dream job, OUTSIDE’s Best Places to Work list is the first place to look,” said OUTSIDE Executive Editor Michael Roberts. “These companies set the standard for workplaces that really value their employees and offer an experience that’s fulfilling inside and outside the office.”
Derek Adams, BrainStorm's Vice President of Technology says, "Everyone spends way too many hours at work to not enjoy it. At BrainStorm, we create an environment where employees impact and steer the culture equally as much as they contribute to our industry-leading products. I’ve yet to hear an employee, previous or current, that doesn’t claim BrainStorm is the best company he or she has ever worked for. That is the best compliment we can receive and we are honored that our efforts are being recognized by OUTSIDE Magazine for a third straight year."
It is no easy feat to find the balance between vibrant culture and rewarding workload, but BrainStorm manages both challenges ably. Their company culture includes their work ethic, integrity, and brand pride, but also includes activities like mid-day dance offs and impromptu rounds of dodge ball. While the BrainStorm team keeps busy by creating innovative training software and battling for Halo-master bragging rights, they also find time each month to give back to local and national organizations through service projects, donations, events, and more.
BrainStorm’s work environment isn’t the only award-winning aspect of this fast-paced company. Their products have also been recognized across the nation for their features, benefits, functionality, and innovation. The fun, energetic culture at BrainStorm keeps the team fresh for big tasks like saving the world from mediocre software use. Each team player can attest to the vibrant culture, which offers a great balance of fun, challenge, and fulfillment.
