Talk about benefits: Clif Bar employees get paid to exercise for 2.5 hours every week!
Most people know Clif Bar & Company for their namesake product, the ever-popular CLIF Bar.
However, it seems this company is also a fantastic place to work.
In addition to standard benefits, Clif Bar & Co. offers a number of company-specific perks.
For example, while many corporations have an on-site gym, Clif also has a rock climbing wall, dual-purpose yoga/dance rooms, and massage rooms.
In keeping with with their outdoor-driven, health-conscious image, Clif gives employees two-and-a-half hours of paid exercise every week, complete with personal training. Employees are allowed to bring their dogs to the office and have access to counseling and life coaching.
But the benefits don’t stop there. In 2010, Clif Bar & Co. adopted an employee stock ownership program. This means that, collectively, 20 percent of Clif is owned by its workers.
Clif Bar & Co. was named one of Outside magazine’s Best Places to Work for five years in a row.
The company is owned by Gary Erickson and Kit Crawford. It is currently run by CEO Kevin Cleary.
