Two Rivers Marketing, a subsidiary of WCI and a leading provider of business-to-business marketing and public relations services located in Des Moines’ East Village, was recently named to Outside Magazine’s sixth annual “Best Places to Work” list — celebrating companies that have taken innovative steps to establish a new, healthy work-life balance standard.

 

Partnering with the Outdoor Industry Association and the Best Companies Group, Outside Magazine launched the yearlong selection process by first identifying a wide range of nonprofit and for-profit organizations across the United States with at least 15 employees. Participating companies were sent confidential employee-satisfaction surveys and employer-questionnaires to collect information regarding benefit offerings, compensation packages, environmental initiatives and community outreach programs. The experts at the Best Companies Group then analyzed their findings, selecting the companies that best enable employees to pursue active lifestyles while also supporting their social and environmental contributions.

 

“We’re excited to be recognized by Outside Magazine as a top place to work in the country,” said Barry Bruner, account lead at Two Rivers Marketing. “As an Iowa company, it’s interesting to see how our agency’s culture mirrors several of the outdoor-type companies that more commonly call states like Oregon and Washington home. We’ve put a lot of focus on work-life balance, a healthy environment and having fun over the past several years. This award helps validate our progress as we continue to look at new ways to keep associates engaged in a productive, worthwhile work environment.”
