Restoration Services, Inc. (RSI) was named to Outside Magazine’s ninth annual “Best Places to Work” list. RSI was ranked No. 66 out of 100 selected companies. The full list of 100 is available at outsideonline.com/bestplacestowork. This is the third year that RSI has been listed in the top 100 “Best Places to Work” list since 2009.
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 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.
“Restoration Services, nestled in the shadows of the North Boundary and Black Oak Ridge Trails in Tennessee, has 276 employees offering services focused on environmental cleanup and site reuse nationwide. The company was part of a team that won a sustainability award from the Department of Energy for developing a photovoltaic solar installation that reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Staffers build and maintain local biking and hiking trails and have easy access to fishing, rowing, and paddle boarding.” Outside Magazine, November 2016.
Outside Magazine explains The Best Places to Work list by stating, “Fortunately, more companies are learning that healthier, happier people make for more creative, more productive workers, and they’re making big adjustments” to the workplace.
