BURLINGTON, VERMONT – October 6, 2014 – Dealer.com, a Dealertrack Technologies solution (Nasdaq: TRAK), proudly announced it has been selected for the third time as one of OUTSIDE’s Best Places to Work 2014. This year, the company ranked No. 84. Each year, OUTSIDE recognizes the top 100 companies in the United States that help their employees strike the ideal balance between work and play.

OUTSIDE noted Dealer.com’s emphasis on full-body holistic fitness, recreational sports and health facilities as well as the locally-sourced food choices on-site.

In winter months, the company offers discounted ski/ride passes to several local mountain resorts.

About the Awards :
To find the best places to work in the United States, OUTSIDE conducted a rigorous eight-month vetting process in partnership with the Best Companies Group to assess the policies, practices, and demographics of hundreds of companies, and went straight to the employees to hear about factors like corporate culture, role satisfaction, work environment and overall employee engagement. The Best Places to Work list represents the cream of the crop: companies who cultivate a comfortable and collaborative workplace, enable their employees to enjoy the great outdoors and take pride in their roles in the community and the environment.
