“We’re honored to be recognized by Outside’s Best Places to Work,” said Devon Dickinson, CEO of Verified First. “Meridian is an incredible place to grow a company. Having so many opportunities for outdoor recreation in our backyard helps our employees come to work revitalized and eager to contribute to our success.”
“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.”
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 tenth year providing the Best Places to Work.
