Namasté Solartoday was named to Outside Magazine’s sixth annual “Best Places to Work” list. Namasté Solar was ranked No. 63 out of 100 selected companies. The full list of the top-ten-performing small, medium, and large companies will be published online at OutsideOnline.com/bestplacestowork.
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.
“We are honored to make the list of Outside Magazine’s Best Places to Work,” said Amanda Bybee, Co-Owner and Vice President of Namasté Solar. “For us, the progressive, flexible, employee-friendly policies are an extension of being an employee-owned cooperative. We ARE the owners, and therefore it’s up to us to create a workplace that we love to come to everyday. Furthermore, we know that happy employees lead to happy customers. And happy customers leads to a successful business. So we regard it as an important part of our company strategy.”
"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."
“Namasté Solar employee owners pay as much attention to the business of installing solar electric panels as to its progressive business practices,” continued Ms. Bybee. “Namasté Solar has installed over 2,600 solar PV systems since 2005 for clients such as the National Renewable Energy Lab, Denver Public Schools, Denver Housing Authority, Colorado Convention Center, Environmental Protection Agency, Lockheed Martin, New Belgium Brewing Company, Wells Fargo, and many Colorado homeowners.”
