San Diego, CA (November 2, 2018) – SportRx, the leader in sports prescription eyewear for athletes and outdoor recreationalists, has been selected as one of OUTSIDE’s Best Places to Work 2018. This is the fourth time SportRx has been selected as a top company. Winning companies provide great workplaces for employees and encourage a balance between work and enjoying life in the great outdoors, while also respecting the environment.
“Companies from across the country entered a rigorous two-part survey process to make the winning list,” said Abigail Wise, online managing editor, OUTSIDE. “Employees took part in a survey to measure personal experience, while The Best Companies Group evaluated each company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics.” The winning companies are those that value productivity in combination with an active, eco-conscious lifestyle, for a fulfilling experience inside and outside the office. This is OUTSIDE’s eleventh year providing the Best Places to Work.
SportRx aligns perfectly with OUTSIDE’s standard of community and work/life balance. Embedded in their culture is the “work hard/play hard” attitude. SportRx employees are free to work out during their workday and are granted unlimited vacation time. “We want everyone who comes through these doors to love what they do. Their career is shaped by their passions,” says Dan Bruton, SportRx President. “Not only do we want people to have a good place to work at SportRx, we want them to have good lives,” says Rob Tavakoli, SportRx Vice President.
SportRx is heavily involved in the community, serving as a hub for organizations such as the San Diego County Bike Coalition, the San Diego Track Club, San Diego Mountain Bike Association, and more. Every day, SportRx sets up a pit stop along the bike path in front of their office to provide local athletes and bike commuters a place to refuel with free water, granola bars, and APX sports drink.
Staffed with three professors from surrounding San Diego universities, SportRx opens their offices to a steady stream of students to fulfill their work-study programs, earn valuable work experience, and receive guidance on resumé building and job placement. Twenty percent of SportRx employees are former students.
