OUTSIDE, America’s preeminent active lifestyle brand, has named Haberman, the only Minneapolis marketing agency on the list, to its 50 “Best Places to Work” in 2018. This is Haberman’s seventh consecutive year being recognized, and OUTSIDE ranked Haberman at 45. Winning companies – the top 50 places to work in the U.S. and 50 honorable mentions – provide great workplaces for employees and encourage a balance between work and enjoying life in the great outdoors, while also respecting the environment.
“This might be my favorite award, and for Haberman to be recognized for the seventh year – for our productivity in combination with an active, eco-conscious lifestyle and experiences inside and outside the office – is a thrill,” said Fred Haberman, co-founder and CEO, Haberman. “Our clients are mission-driven pioneers and our office culture thrives on that same pioneer mentality. We give our employees flexible schedules and hatch schemes together that grow into cherished shared experiences, like our just launched organic master sauce company, Freak Flag Foods, our organic produce farm, Dude Ranch; and the aquaponics business we helped launch, Urban Organics. Our values mirror those of OUTSIDE in so many ways—concern for the environment, pushing for greater nutrition and value from our food, and championing the explorer’s mindset and attitude.”
“Companies from across the country entered a rigorous two-part survey process to make the winning list,” said Abigail Wise, online managing editor, OUTSIDE. “Employees took part in a survey to measure personal experience, while The Best Companies Group evaluated each company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics.”
