Denver’s ReadyTalk, TrackVia and FullContact ranked No. 11, No. 26 and No. 61, respectively, and were among 13 Colorado companies to make Outside’s seventh annual list. A total of 100 businesses and organizations of all kinds made the list, and according to Outside, all 100 were fully vetted over the past year and all empower their employees to live bigger, better lives.
“[These companies] go so far as to cover your lift tickets and gym memberships, invite your dog into the office, and even pay for you to take better vacations,” Outside said. “Best of all, many of them are hiring.”
Here’s what Outside had to say about all the Denver businesses:
“ReadyTalk provides user-friendly audio and Web conferencing services for everything from small ad hoc meetings to large online events. It offers a full suite of tools for training, collaboration, and webinars. But with 14ers calling from the looming Front Range—not to mention the diversions in the office gaming room—don’t expect employees to stay glued to their screens. There’s on-site yoga and massage therapy, and even the occasional staff meeting at Rockies games or on the ski hill.”
“Don’t let the IT guy read this. TrackVia aims to empower nontechnical people (that’s you) to build business applications tailored to their unique needs—tracking sales, managing projects, eliminating paperwork, and collecting data. The advantage: It’s faster and less expensive than working with an outside partner, and the end-product is customized to your exact needs.”
“Admit it: Your address book is a mess. There is, however, a solution. FullContact hopes to follow in the steps of Dropbox (files) and Evernote (reminders and notes) to revolutionize the address book with an in-the-cloud solution that gathers your contacts from all places—Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn—and centralizes them in one up-to-date resource. But big breakthroughs don’t come without inspiration, so to keep ideas flowing, the staff takes hiking meetings and the company supports policies that make indulging personal passions easy.”
Orbotix, Zen Planner and SolidFire were among the other Colorado companies named to the list. The No. 1 spot went to Seely Lake Elementary in Seely Lake, Montana.
