Nemo Equipment named one of New Hampshire’s best places to work

Business New Hampshire Magazine has named camping and outdoor gear company Nemo Equipment as one of the best places to work in the state for 2022. For 25 years, Business NH Magazine has recognised businesses that go out of their way to create engaging workplaces and understand that fulfilled employees are more productive. This year’s competition attracted a record number of applicants. Each company completed an employee engagement survey administered by an independent their party, as well as an extensive employer survey, detailing benefits and workplace practices. A panel of HR executives judged the company culture responses on the employer survey to determine the winners.

Nemo’s people culture office manager Jill Holt said: “Nemo has experienced exceptional growth this past year and with our decision to continue as a hybrid workspace, it is vital to keep the team connected and growing together. Our dynamic benefits package supports the complete employee from health and wellness to paying for their fishing license to providing time to spend with family and friends. Together, we have created experiences in and out of the office to keep our team motivated and engaged. Group camping trips, winter ski outings, cooking competitions and movie nights have provided balance and camaraderie.”

Darren Josey, vice president of marketing, who has been with the brand for two years, added: “After 13 years of working for some great outdoor brands across several different departments, it felt like the opportunity at Nemo was a perfect fit.

“I and so many of my BIPOC peers often feel like the mo-ment will never come. However, my time at Nemo has not only fulfilled my personal career goals, but I’m asked, ‘what do you need from us to accommodate more diversity and inclusion?’ As a proud Puerto Rican and Black outdoor enthusiast, I’m personally and professionally motivated to make places where we recreate safer, while also inviting others from the BIPOC community to join in our industry’s corporate HQ’s.”

Nemo has nearly doubled its workforce team in the last two years, maintaining its objective to build a thriving team that reflects diversity and protects the places everyone depends on to enjoy outrdoor recreation.
