Outside Names Smith Among Best Employers

Each year Outside Magazine compiles a list of the 30 “Best Places To Work,” and for the second year in a row Smith Optics made the cut, coming in fourth. Unfortunately for those on the job hunt, they currently have no positions available.

According to the release:

"This is a company passionate not only about the products we make, but the
sports we make them for.   This recognition is not surprising, but it is
very rewarding and an important validation of the efforts we all make here
together.   I could not be more proud of the employees of this company and
this award sincerely belongs to them," said Smith Optics president, Ned

Notable about the selection process is a significant portion of the ranking
is based on confidential employee surveys filled out voluntarily by each
company employee probing their satisfaction on benefits, compensation,
employer's policies, job satisfaction, management style, company
environmental initiatives, and community outreach programs.   All of the
results were analyzed by Best Companies Group experts, who selected the 30
companies that best enable employees to balance productivity with an active,
eco-conscious lifestyle.

It comes as no suprise that Smith Optics was selected and ranked so highly
in this competition.  This is something that everyone at Smith can be proud
of and know that even in the times of an economic rollercoaster that they
work for an employer who has their back and best interests at heart.
Congratulations to everyone at Smith Optics!
