Every day, REI’s more than 11,000 employees represent the co-op’s brand, culture and values through their interactions with our members, customers, community partners and outdoor spaces. Their knowledge of our products and services, passion for stewardship, and commitment to customer service help make REI a recognized leader in the outdoor industry.
We’re proud to be a nationally-recognized employer, providing our employees with an inclusive, welcoming workplace and supporting them with a wide variety of programs and benefits.
Our commitment to provide a meaningful, fun and fulfilling workplace has helped make REI one of FORTUNE magazine's "100 Best Companies to Work For" for 15 years in a row. While we believe this ranking demonstrates our employee's satisfaction, we continue to strive each day to maintain our strong culture and high employee engagement so that the co-op remains an employer of choice.
Because those that make our branded products are part of the extended REI family, we also work to ensure those who make our gear and apparel have a safe, fair and non-discriminatory workplace that complies with REI's Code of Conduct. In support of this, we partner with our industry peers through the Outdoor Industry Association's Fair Labor Working Group to raise awareness of factory compliance issues.
