The Clymb: One of Outside Magazine’s Best Places to Work


We’d only been set­tled into our new offices a few days when we received word that we made Out­side mag­a­zine’s 2012 list of Best Places to Work. We placed 50th out of 100; not bad for a com­pa­ny that got its start just three years ago!

Out­side pri­mar­i­ly makes its deter­mi­na­tion based on mea­sur­able things like a com­pa­ny’s ben­e­fits and poli­cies. But what real­ly set The Clymb apart was its cul­ture, which pro­motes team­work, cre­ativ­i­ty, and a healthy lifestyle and that makes for more engaged and pro­duc­tive employees.

As the arti­cles men­tions, we put in long hours, but it’s with­in a flex­i­ble work envi­ron­ment where lunchtime bike rides and Fris­bee match­es are the norm, team build­ing is done on Mt. Hood, and our dogs are our office­mates. And when we need to stretch our legs…



“We’re hon­ored to join this list of excep­tion­al com­pa­nies that have made the health and hap­pi­ness of their employ­ees a top pri­or­i­ty. The Clymb’s mis­sion from day one has been to increase the well-being of the plan­et and its inhab­i­tants by inspir­ing human-pow­ered adventure—and all of that starts right here with our grow­ing team,” says Kel­ly Dachtler, Co-Founder and Pres­i­dent of The Clymb.

The Sep­tem­ber issue of Out­side high­light­ing The Clymb and the oth­er com­pa­nies named to the icon­ic pub­li­ca­tion’s 2012 Best Places to Work guide will hit news­stands August 14th.
