Best Place to Work: A holistic nine-to-five

CLIF Bar

Understanding that happy employees are harder-working employees, the energy-bar company CLIF Bar has earned such a worker-friendly reputation that some aspiring hires strategize for years to get their feet in the door. Credit the company’s hardcore dedication to well-being, which spans the gamut from protecting the environment to encouraging community service and supporting worthy causes to fostering personal health. Some perks are no-brainers: Work an extra hour every day, take every other Friday off. Others are downright charitable: How about $5,000 toward your new hybrid or alternative-fuel car? Nearly every sector of individual health is covered. Feeling sluggish? Head to the on-site gym, where a personal trainer might recommend a yoga meditation class — during work hours. Carpal tunnel bothering you? Consult the ergonomic trainer. In a quandary about your career? Hit up the personal life coach. Need to breastfeed? Go ahead. Bring your dog to work? It’s all good. Now that’s a place we’d want to work overtime.
