Outside Magazine Names Dominion Digital as One of America's Best Places to Work in 2009

Dominion Digital Ranks in Top Ten of Companies to Work for in America

RICHMOND, VA - April 29, 2009 - Dominion Digital was named to Outside magazine’s (www.outsideonline.com) second annual “Best Places to Work” list. Dominion Digital was ranked No. 6 out of 30 selected companies. The full list and related story will be published in the May issue of Outside magazine, available on newsstands April 14, 2009.

“Being recognized as one of Outside Magazine’s Best Places to Work is a huge honor for Dominion Digital,” says Dave Birckhead, Executive Principal with the firm.  “We strive to create a culture and work environment that is productive, creative and flexible, allowing us to recruit and retain top talent within our industry.”   

Outside’s “Best Places to Work” list was compiled with the help of the Outdoor Industry Association (outdoorindustry.org) and Best Companies Group (bestcompaniesgroup.com). The year-long selection process began with an outreach effort that identified a wide range of non-profit and for-profit organizations with at least 15 employees working in the United States. Participating companies were then sent confidential employee-satisfaction surveys and employer-questionnaires to collect information about benefits, compensation, policies, job satisfaction, environmental initiatives, and community outreach programs. All of the results were analyzed by Best Companies Group experts, who selected the 30 companies that best enable employees to balance productivity with an active, eco-conscious lifestyle. 

“These 30 companies share a common belief: that the secret to success in any economy is empowering employees to live balanced lives and remain committed to their communities and the environment,” said Michael Roberts, Executive Editor of Outside. “Our winners know that happy workers are good for the bottom line. So even in the current financial storm, they’re offering on-site fitness classes and massage, reimbursements for gym memberships and ski passes, flexible hours, amazing travel benefits, and opportunities for on-the-clock community service.”
