Evoke At Entrada Chosen As One Of Outside Magazine's Best Places To Work Again in 2016!
Yearly Outside Magazine creates a list of The 100 Best Places to Work focusing on finding companies that make employee health and happiness a point of pride. This year Evoke at Entrada was awarded the 23rd spot (46th in 2015) specifically highlighting our support for field instructors through strong staff to client ratios, professional development opportunities, and financial contributions including 401k after a year in the field, commitment bonuses, and raises in 2016. As a company we strive to recognize and reward the field staff for the challenging work they do and to aid in preventing burnout in the field.
Below are responses from a few Evoke employees when asked what being awarded the 23rd spot on Outside Magazine's 100 Best Places to Work List means to them.
Working for Evoke for the past 15 months has been an experience that is difficult to sum up because it is filled with complex individuals and groups as well as constant change and challenge. Some words I use to describe it: rewarding, challenging, empowering, the-hardest-thing-I’ve-ever-done, supportive, meaningful, grateful, connected, raw. I think the #23 ranking reflects the company’s supportive and community-oriented approach to a job that that can be intensely challenging and demanding.

Evoke has been an experience of working for a company that truly cares for you like family, whether you’re on or off the clock. The teamwork, operations, and communication within the company is entirely transparent, with the golden standard of holding each employee in a space of unconditional positive regard that honors you for simply being human. It may be easy for other companies to say they offer these things, yet here at Evoke these are all living, breathing truths to the reality of what it’s like to be their employee. Evoke has been the home where I’ve been blessed with the privileges of unparalleled opportunity, career growth, supporting challenges to make me stronger, life-long friendships, a fully supported lifestyle, and unforgettable memories.

Evoke provides space and tools for individuals to explore, discover, and express their true authentic selves. Employees are invited to participate in this journey of authenticity with themselves and with others. And perhaps most importantly Evoke ensures the understanding that it’s okay where you’re at, how you’re feeling, & how to communicate your needs. My journey at Evoke has taught me to identify my emotions, process my past & current experiences, & assertively communicate my needs all while staying authentic to myself.
- Lucas Prater; Senior Field Instructor
Congratulations to all Evoke employees who help make Evoke an amazing company to be part of!
