For the 5th year in a row, Ergodyne has placed within the top 10 of OUTSIDE Magazine’s Best Places to Work. Each year OUTSIDE recognizes the top 100 companies in the United States that set the standard for workplaces that really value their employees and offer an experience that’s fulfilling inside and outside the office.

Ranking eighth overall, the St. Paul-based safety manufacturer was recognized as a top company that encourages employees to lead an active lifestyle, favors work/life balance, and prioritizes giving back to the community. Company social hours are planned monthly and sometimes happen naturally. We gather away from our desks, enjoy a cold beer, glass of wine, or turn on the margarita mixer and enjoy some not-necessarily-work-related conversation. Yoga is offered twice a week for stress relief and refocusing, as well a fully equipped gym to unwind before, after or mid-day to take a break.

OUTSIDE surveyed Ergodyne employees on factors like corporate culture, role satisfaction, work environment, and overall employee engagement. The Best Places to Work list truly represents the best of the best. The full list of winners can be found online at

“We value individuality, creativity and positivity, and try to create a work environment that reflects those qualities.” said Tom Votel, president and CEO, Ergodyne.
