Colorado companies Natural Habitat Adventures, New Belgium top Outside Magazine's 50 Dream Jobs
Get your resumes ready, fast: Two of the three top spots in Outside Magazine's annual list of the 50 Best Places to Work went to Colorado companies this year, and we imagine there will be several more when the full list drops. The issue hits stands April 27.
Natural Habitat Adventures (based in Louisville, CO) claimed the top spot: Apparently working for "the world's premiere nature travel company" has some travel perks. They're accepting resumes for both office staff and field staff.
New Belgium Brewing, the Fort Collins "beer company with a biking problem," also topped the list, and - believe it or not - they're actually hiring: To get your foot in the door, apply now for a seasonal job on the Clips of Faith Beer & Film Tour (now there's a resume you can up with) or a summer internship crunching numbers with the Sustainability Department data collection team.
"These 50 companies come from a vast array of industries but they're all following the same enlightened path," said Michael Roberts, Executive Editor of Outside. "They're successful businesses in a challenging economy precisely because they support a proper work-life balance. They know that benefits like on-site gyms and fitness classes, reimbursements for ski passes and sports racing fees, and support for community service efforts during work hours make their employees happier and thus more productive."
