Outdoor retailer REI honored by FORTUNE magazine

Recreational Equipment Inc (REI), announced that it has again been honored by FORTUNE magazine as one of the “100 Best Companies to Work for in America.” Ranked as number 34 in the 2008 list, REI has been recognized as part of the “100 Best” list for 11 consecutive years.

The company is one of 14 employers included every year since the magazine began compiling the list in 1998, and one of five companies included in two earlier book versions. Additionally, REI is one of six companies based in the state of Washington that made FORTUNE's list. The complete rankings can be viewed online at fortune.com starting, and will be part of the magazine's February issue available on newsstands on January 28.

Released annually, FORTUNE's “100 Best” list is based on an employee survey conducted by the Great Places to Work Institute, and corporate information submitted by each company regarding its culture, policies and benefits. Four hundred employees randomly received the “100 Best” survey which measured workplace pride, respect, credibility, fairness and camaraderie. Employee survey results are heavily weighted at two-thirds of the final score.

“With our employees' enthusiastic dedication to our customers, communities and each other, they create an environment that makes REI a rewarding place to work and an inspiring place to shop,” said Sally Jewell, REI president and CEO. “Our 10,000 employees are the heart of our commitment to increase outdoor recreation, engage children in nature and protect shared natural spaces.”
