The Honest Kitchen, maker of all-natural dehydrated pet foods, supplements and treats, is proud to announce its rankings as number 40 on Outside’s Best Places to Work 2016 and number 47 on the Entrepreneur360 list. For the sixth consecutive year, Outside recognized the leading pet food brand as one of the nation’s top 100 companies that motivate its employees to create the perfect work-life balance. Likewise, The Honest Kitchen made the top 50 list on the Entrepreneur360 scale among small businesses that are mastering harmonious growth of a well-rounded company.
“We are committed to providing our teams, both human and canine, with an environment that inspires well-being, creativity and innovation, all while keeping the brand on the right path to continuous growth,” said The Honest Kitchen founder and CEO Lucy Postins. “We are thrilled to be recognized for our efforts by both Outside and Entrepreneur Magazines and will continue to push for these types of achievements.”
The Honest Kitchen employs no less than 49 employees, 31 dogs and six cats. In-office perks include two company-owned bikes for employees’ personal use, monthly chair massages, and reimbursement for fitness programs. The company encourages staff to be outside as much as possible, whether for walking meetings, group exercise or gatherings on the patio. Canine employees receive company-subsidized nail trimmings and anesthesia-free dental cleanings. As an advocate of giving back to the community, The Honest Kitchen compensates each person for up to 16 hours of volunteer time per year and organizes all-office volunteer events.
With explosive company growth, The Honest Kitchen continuously proves to be on a projected path to success and expansion. Judged on four key metrics: impact, innovation, growth, and leadership, The Honest Kitchen has rightfully earned a top ranking on the Entrepreneur360 list. The award program hosted Lucy Postins as an innovative industry leader at its annual conference in Long Beach, Calif., on Nov. 16, 2016.
To find the best places to work in the United States in 2016, Outside conducted a rigorous vetting process in partnership with the Best Companies Group to assess the policies, practices and demographics of hundreds of companies. Employee reviews of their workplaces drove Outside’s list of best places to work. Entrepreneur360 judged companies on revenue as well as the four pillars of entrepreneurialism.
The Honest Kitchen previously received accolades such as San Diego Magazine’s Coolest Companies 2016, San Diego Business Journal’s Best Places to Work 2016 and the Family Choice Awards 2014.
