Missouri’s own Bass Pro Shops has been named one of America’s Best Employers by Forbes. The outdoor company, headquartered in Springfield, Missouri, ranked number nine out of 500 employers that qualified for the award.
“Our friendly, knowledgeable and passionate team members have rightly earned the reputation as, ‘World’s Foremost Outfitters’ for their incredible commitment to helping our customers connect to nature,” said Bass Pro Shops Founder and CEO Johnny Morris. “We are honored to receive this recognition as we strive to take care of our Outfitters as well as they take care of our customers.”
The results are based on an independent survey of 50,000 employees in 25 different industries working for companies with at least 1,000 people employed in U.S. locations. Employees were asked open-ended questions about their employer.
