Forbes Names Outdoorsy One of America’s Best Startup Employers for Third Consecutive Year

Outdoorsy, a global online RV rental and outdoor travel marketplace, has been named one of America’s Best Startup Employers in 2022 by Forbes Media for the third consecutive year.

In addition to being the only vehicle rental marketplace ranked in the transportation category, Outdoorsy was the only peer-to-peer vacation rental company named to Forbes‘ survey, according to a press release.

Forbes and Statista Inc. analyzed over 7 million data points from employee reputation, employee satisfaction, and growth to identify the top startup employers.

“We’re incredibly honored to be recognized and awarded this distinction by Forbes for the third year running. We see this accolade as a testament to our team’s dedication to keep our work culture and our employee wellbeing at the forefront of every decision,” said Jeff Cavins, Outdoorsy’s co-founder and CEO.

Data from the RV Industry Association suggest about 72 million Americans are planning to take a road trip this year. While prioritizing the 67% of first-time RVers visiting the site daily, Outdoorsy’s Head of People Cindy Strong said the company continues to prioritize its focus within.

As a company, the past two years have challenged us in a good way to lead with empathy and attend to the holistic needs of our team members,” Strong said, adding that “positive results include enhancing DEIB initiatives, free mental health-provider care, and an increased budget of $5,000 per employee for team members to get out, explore the outdoors, and experience Outdoorsy firsthand.

“Outdoorsy is committed to building a positive, supportive, people-first work culture, and we’ll look to continue expanding on these offerings in the year ahead,” she said.

Being named to the Forbes list year after year is truly an honor as our team continues to grow and find ways to better our culture and provide new opportunities for career development, recognition, and self-care.

Outdoorsy also ranked as one of the top lifestyle startups in the Austin area by the Austin Business Journal. Other distinctions earned by the fast-growing company within the past year include:

In June 2021, Outdoorsy raised $120 million in equity and debt financing to support accelerated marketplace growth and rapid expansion of its insurtech division, Roamly.
In March 2021, Outdoorsy was named by renowned venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz as the 3rd fastest-growing travel marketplace, earning the No. 11 spot on the Marketplace 100, a ranking of the largest and fastest-growing consumer-facing marketplace startups and private companies.
In March 2021, Outdoorsy was named one of the biggest tech employers in the Austin area by the Austin Business Journal – a list that includes companies that provide proprietary technology that shakes up the industry they operate in.
