Once again, Outside Magazine lists the Honest Kitchen in the top 30 best places to work! Click here to see the article.
Location: San Diego, California
Number of employees: 20 human staff, 26 four-legged executives
Digs: A 3,500 square-foot loft in a one hundred-year-old red brick building that used to be home to the Wonder Bread factory. The floor plan is very open, with lots of brick and natural wood—and of course dogs, dog beds, and water bowls all over the place. Massage chairs, lots of sofas (usually occupied by one or more dogs), and bookshelves dot the office.
Culture: It goes without saying: it’s a dog culture. Twelve office dogs are the focal point of everything: schedules are often structured around their walks, meaning lots of fresh air for everyone. Employees take advantage of flexible hours to accommodate their personal needs, everything from children’s sports to canine acupuncture appointments.
Sweet Perk: Monthly in-office chair massages for everyone and dog peticures for the office pups. Office outings are in the oft, and include lectures (the staff recently went to hear the Dalai Lama speak), local craft brew houses, restaurants, and occasional baseball games.
The Honest Kitchen also was listed in Outside Magainze's 2011 Best Places to Work list. Read the 2011 press release.
