I really enjoy working at Adventure Cycling Association. I could probably write a list of 100 things that are terrific about this organization from the mission to the members to the staff to the unique headquarters. But it's always nice to have that perception validated by an outside party -- and in this case, I really mean Outside, as in Outside magazine!
Today, Outside released its list of top places to work in the outdoors industry and, for the second time, Adventure Cycling is in the mix. What's gratifying is that our inclusion in this list comes as the result of an employer survey and a rigorous staff survey process in which our staff gives anonymous responses to many questions about every conceivable workplace and organizational issue. Through their candid responses, they said that Adventure Cycling is an exceptional place to work.
I want to pay special tribute to Sheila Snyder, our fantastic Chief Operations Officer, and our Work/Life Team, made up of staff from across the organization, who have helped us improve so many aspects of our workplace and our systems. Of course there's always more to do but right now, this recognition is sweet! Congratulations everyone!
