MIAMI, Aug. 2, 2012 – Outside Magazine’s fifth annual “Best Places to Work” list includes Max Borges Agency once again. Max Borges Agency, the leading tech public relations and social media agency with a 100% focus on technology and consumer electronics, ranks 18th out of 100 selected companies. The full list and related story can be found in the September 2012 issue of Outside magazine or online (www.outsideonline.com).

Outside’s “Best Places to Work” list was compiled with the help of the Outdoor Industry Association (outdoorindustry.org) and Best Companies Group (bestcompaniesgroup.com). The year-long selection process included an outreach effort that identified a wide range of non-profit and for-profit organizations with at least 15 employees working in the United States. Participating companies were sent confidential employee-satisfaction surveys and employer-questionnaires to collect information about benefits, compensation, policies, job satisfaction, environmental initiatives, and community outreach programs. Experts at the Best Companies Group then studied the results and selected the companies that strive to enhance their employees’ enjoyment of active endeavors, and environmental and social involvement.

This year, the Best Company Group determined that there were so many amazing applicants that the list needed to be bigger. The editors at Outside magazine agreed, and highlighted the top 100 companies instead of only the top 50.

“Max Borges Agency team members are constantly pushing the envelope and having fun doing it,” said Max Borges, president. “We are honored to be recognized by Outside magazine, and we look forward to continue keeping our team motivated to experience tremendous success at work and in their personal lives.”

Michael Roberts, Senior Executive Editor of Outside said, “We’re delighted to have expanded our ‘Best Places to Work’ list.” “These are enlightened companies that seek ambitious individuals who work hard, think big, and crave life-affirming careers, lunchtime bike rides, and soul-expanding travel.”
