SAUSALITO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 16, 2015) - For five years running, Butler, Shine Stern & Partners (BSSP) was named by Outside magazine as one of the 'Best Places to Work in America' for 2015, this year coming in at #43 out of 100.

"We work to create an inclusive, active, mutually rewarding culture. We are grateful that our employees recognize and value this. Outside Magazine's recognition is based on an independent employee survey. We're proud of the honor and what it says about working at and with BSSP," said Greg Stern, CEO of BSSP.

In its entry for the award, BSSP provided details on its culture, emphasizing volunteer efforts and giving back to the community, the wealth of athletic and fitness offerings, its dog-friendly work environment and generous employee benefit programs. The write up in Outside gave the agency bonus points, noting the following: "This year 26 employees (eight relay teams, and two individuals doing the whole thing) competed in the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. The team also helps build houses with Habitat for Humanity, packs food for the needy with the Marin-San Francisco Food Bank, and other volunteer efforts."

"The companies recognized in this year's Best Places to Work list are the gold standard for stellar work environments that seek to empower their employees both in and out of the office," said OUTSIDE Online Editor Scott Rosenfield. "The new categories in this year's list serve to highlight outstanding workplaces in distinctive fields -- making it all the easier for our readers to find their dream jobs."
