November 16, 2016
Boise-based Balihoo, the leading provider of local-digital advertising technology and services, has been named to OUTSIDE’s Best Places to Work 2016. The company has reappeared on the list at #69, after being recognized in 2013 and 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.bestplacestoworkoutside.com.
“We are very proud to be recognized by OUTSIDE magazine as one of the best places to work for the third time,” said Balihoo CEO, Paul Price. “At Balihoo, we’re lucky to be doing business in the beautiful state of Idaho, and it’s important to us that every employee gets the opportunity to experience the best of Idaho’s outdoor recreation opportunities. We work hard to promote a healthy work-life balance, which includes a flexible paid time off policy, and paid community service hours that allow our employees to follow their passions. To be recognized for valuing and nurturing our employee’s passions is very rewarding.”
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.
“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 emphasis a healthy work life balance and promote, encourage and reward employees to live active and healthier lives.”
