NEW YORK, NY (November 17, 2015) – For the second year in a row, Foothold Technology has been selected as one of OUTSIDE’s Best Places to Work. Each year, OUTSIDE recognizes the top 100 companies in the United States that help their employees strike the ideal balance between work and play, and this year Foothold Technology is #27. Companies on the list encourage employees to lead an active lifestyle, are eco-conscious, and prioritize giving back to the community. The entire list of winners appears online at outsideonline.com.
In addition to making the cut with OUTSIDE, Foothold Technology was also named as one of Crain’s 2015 Best Places to Work in New York City.
“The founders of our company have worked hard to make Foothold the kind of place that WE want to work. We don’t like unnecessary bureaucracy, so we try not to have it in our company. We treat employees with respect, and in return, we receive respect from our employees” said Nick Scharlatt, Foothold Technology’s co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer.
“The companies recognized in this year’s Best Places to Work list are the gold standard for stellar work environments that seek to empower their employees both in and out of the office,” said OUTSIDE Online Editor Scott Rosenfield. Outside’s Best Places to Work 2015 was driven by employee reviews of their workplaces, taking into account factors like corporate culture, role satisfaction, work environment and overall employee engagement.
The staff at Foothold are no strangers to rankings when it comes to fun too. As part of an annual summer tradition, staff gather to enjoy a different sandwich each Friday and then rank that sandwich in a quest to find the best sandwiches in all of New York City. Several Foothold staff members participate in annual cycling events, competitive marathons, charitable events, volunteer projects and bring that fun, healthy spirit to the workplace, like planting a garden at a public school.
