Wisetail Named One Of Outside Magazine’s 100 Best Places To Work In 2016

Wisetail Named #32 On Outside Magazine’s 100 Best Places To Work 2016. Montana’s Fastest Growing Tech Firm Earns Spot on “National Dream Job List”
(Bozeman, MT) – Wisetail earned another national recognition, landing at #32 on OUTSIDE Magazine’s 100 Best Places to Work 2016.
OUTSIDE recognizes the top 100 companies in the country each year. It helps readers find dream jobs, ones with an ideal balance between work and play. The chosen companies encourage an active lifestyle. They’re eco-conscious, and give back to the community.
Wisetail lives these qualities by weaving adventure into the company’s mission. Employees can apply for a $1,000 adventure fund each quarter. The money can go toward an adventure or a professional development opportunity. Wisetail also helps with local trail projects. And it gives back through a charitable arm, Wisetail Works.
The OUTSIDE Magazine honor is the latest for Wisetail this year. Fortune Magazine named Wisetail one of the 50 Best Small Businesses in America. It was also named one of the fastest growing companies in America by Inc.com.
“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. They’re “organizations that emphasize a healthy work-life balance and promote, encourage and reward employees to live active and healthier lives.”
“Honestly, this is the only business recognition I’ve ever wanted because it represents the intersection of business performance, being a great place to work and a commitment to social and environmental responsibility. This recognition validates our commitment to adventure often and enjoy Montana’s wide open spaces so we can be a healthier, more inspired and a higher performing team. Because we are an #INDIETECH company, we are free from the strings attached to venture capital and free to prioritize our core cultural values.”
