GREATIST focuses on posts about making healthier choices with a theme to feel good, happy and healthy. On October 30th they posted a list of The 44 Healthiest Companies to work for in America. We picked this up in our searches and found that Petaluma’s CamelBak made the list.
Greatlist.com reports the following:
We consider CamelBak the capital of Hydration Nation—thanks to their water bottles, filters, and hydration packs—so it’s no surprise that they encourage their 138 employees to keep the H2O coming. Just one part of their “Bak to Health” program, a yearly challenge where employees earn points for exercise, hydration, and healthy nutrition. It’s a company-wide game, and everyone’s a winner: All participants earn rewards, and CamelBak donates money to charities selected by the players as a result. Apart from this friendly competition, day-to-day culture encourages the healthy outdoor living that CamelBak’s products champion. Employees can work out with provided fitness equipment, take to the on-site basketball court, pedal around on one of the four company bikes, or meet with CamelBak’s personal trainer for a more structured workout. And all workers receive discounts to various outdoor and adventure companies. We imagine the CamelBak-supported paid sabbatical of four to six weeks gives employees even more opportunity to test out that new camping gear.
In 2013 Camelbak was listed on Outside Magazine’s website Online article on the 100 Best Places To Work which sites that their office is located by a 165-acre wetlands park, which features a two-mile circular trail and a one-mile trail ideal for running and biking. Also adds that their culture provides for a stress management or meditation class through their Bak to Health wellness program.
