Outdoorsy accolade

Virginia has two companies that made Outside Magazine’s list of the best places to work, putting the commonwealth alongside rugged states such as Colorado, California and Vermont.

Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing, an outdoor adventure center that leads corporate and team-building adventures and runs a summer youth program, joined perennial contenders Patagonia, Clif Bar and REI.

Wilderness Adventure is in Craig County, which is outside Roanoke. (Full disclosure: I worked there for a year after college, leading backpacking trips during the summer and then corporate and school groups in the fall and spring. It is indeed a wonderful place to work with a full gear barn where you can borrow a kayak, mountain bike or any other piece of equipment and head right into the mountains.)

Glen-Allen based Dominion Digital, a process and technology consulting firm, made the list for the second year.

The list is not yet available online but is in the magazine’s current issue, which is on newsstands.

For the HR professionals out there, I’d be curious to know how valuable national magazine accolades are. Do they help noticeably with recruiting? Please post thoughts in the comments section.
