Rustic Pathways was named one of the 100 Best Places to Work by Outside Magazine for the second consecutive year.

In a news release, Outside said the winning companies value productivity and an “active, eco-conscious lifestyle” to create a fulling experience for employees during work and away from the office.

“Companies from across the country entered a rigorous two-part survey process to make the winning list,” said Jonah Ogles, Articles Editor at Outside Magazine. “The Best Companies Group evaluates each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. There’s also an employee survey to measure personal experience.”

One of those responses was listed in the description of why Rustic was named one of the best places to work this year.

“Cyclone Winston caused major damage to much of Fiji, and our community partners were hit hard. Following the storm, the RP Foundation (the philanthropic arm of Rustic Pathways) raised $35,000 and we were able to provide food and supplies to remote areas that had yet to receive aid.”
