REI named among 100 Best Companies to Work For 18th consecutive year

Published March 5, 2015

SEATTLE (BRAIN) — REI has been named to Fortune magazine’s list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For an 18th consecutive year. Ranked No. 58, REI is one of five companies listed annually since the recognition began in 1998, and one of three companies headquartered in Washington state.

Fortune partners annually with the Great Place to Work Institute to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America to identify the 100 Best Companies to Work For. Two-thirds of a company's survey score is based on the results of the Trust Index Employee Survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. This survey asks questions related to employees’ attitudes about management’s credibility, overall job satisfaction and camaraderie. 

The other third is based on responses to the Culture Audit, which includes detailed questionnaires about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, methods of internal communication, training, recognition programs and diversity efforts.

The nation’s largest consumer co-op, REI has more than 5.6 million active members and 138 stores in 33 states.
