Aspen Skiing Company lands on Outside Magazine's annual 'Best Places to Work' list

Aspen Skiing Company (ASC) was recently named to Outside Magazine’s sixth annual “Best Places to Work” list. ASC was ranked No. 90 out of 100 selected companies.

The full list of the top-ten-performing small, medium, and large companies will be published online on August 1 at OutsideOnline.com/bestplacestowork. ASC was also recognized for “Best Perks” for the practice of providing free ski passes to employees.

Outside’s “Best Places to Work” project celebrates the innovative companies setting a new standard for a healthy work-life balance. The list was compiled with the help of the Outdoor Industry Association and Best Companies Group.

The yearlong selection process began with an outreach effort that identified a wide range of non-profit and for-profit organizations with at least 15 employees working in an office in the United States. Participating companies were sent confidential employee-satisfaction surveys and employer-questionnaires to collect information about benefits, compensation, policies, job satisfaction, environmental initiatives, and community outreach programs.

The experts at the Best Companies Group then analyzed the results and selected the companies that best enable employees to pursue active lifestyles while also supporting their social and environmental contributions.

This year’s “Best Places To Work” list will highlight not only the Top 100 companies, but will also spotlight those on the list that offer the best perks, including “Fitness-Friendly” companies, those with the most liberal “Flex Time” policies, the “Best Travel Perks”, and those with the “Best Office Culture.”

“We are honored to be included for the second year in a row and to have made the list four of the six years of its existence,” said Mike Kaplan, president and CEO, Aspen Skiing Company. “By surveying our employees and monitoring their feedback, this process allows us to continually strive for improvement. We are privileged to be included with such great companies across the country, both large and small.”

"We're proud to publicize the efforts of these 100 companies," said Outside editor Christopher Keyes. "They each show a real commitment to creating active, healthy work environments and put a premium on innovative benefits. Year after year, Outside's Best Places to Work program demonstrates that America's most successful companies are the ones that consistently promote true work-life balance for their employees."

Aspen Skiing Company operates the four mountains in the Aspen/Snowmass area - Snowmass, Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands and Buttermilk - as well as the award-winning Ski & Snowboard Schools of Aspen/Snowmass. In addition, ASC owns and operates the award-winning The Little Nell hotel and Limelight Hotel. The area offers unparalleled nightlife and off-slope activities as well.
