FORT COLLINS, Colo. -
OtterBox is ranked as one of the best workplaces in the United States on the Great Place to Work annual 2012 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list, published Thursday in FORTUNE magazine.
The maker of premium protective cases for mobile technology was recognized as a company with an exceptional workplace culture.
With a 55% increase in employment, this manufacturing and production company has imbued 249 new Otters with "ottertude" this year, rapping about their values and making up skits during "Ottermersion."
Spiral slides, pinball and foosball machines, new iPads and their recent addition of a lunch lottery (where employees are drawn at random to have lunch together and socialize) provide a carefree and creative habitat where Otters are inspired to direct their energy towards caring about each other and their communities.
All employees receive 24 hours of PTO for volunteering and a weekly update on non-profits in need of help.
