SportRx, the leader in sports prescription eyewear, has been recognized among Outside Magazine’s Best Places to Work in America for the fifth time. SportRx was noted for maintaining perks like flexible paid time off, annual team trips and excursions, and even home-brewed beers on tap in the office, like 2019’s Barley Visible.
Nomination entails a rigorous selection process conducted by Best Companies Group in conjunction with Outside Magazine. Winning companies provide great workplaces for employees and encourage a balance between work and enjoying life in the great outdoors, while also respecting the environment.
“It’s an incredible honor to be named a Best Place to Work again,” says SportRx Vice President, Rob Tavakoli, “Inside the building feels like an amazing place to spend your time and energy, and it’s great for that feeling to be confirmed by Outside!”
SportRx is also known to be heavily involved in their local community. Headquartered in San Diego, CA, SportRx keeps their bike-commuting neighbors happy and well-hydrated with a hydration and snack station located outside of their office. In addition, with three college instructors on staff, including SportRx CEO & President Dan Bruton, SportRx opens up their doors to students of local San Diego universities to fulfill work-study programs, gain valuable work experience, and receive guidance on resume building.
