PW Companies selected as a Top Workplace


PW Companies (Cariloha’s parent company) is pleased to announce that it has been selected as one of The Wasatch Front Top Workplaces.

The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback. The employee survey is conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement. WorkplaceDynamics conducts regional Top Workplaces programs with 40 major publishing partners across the United States. Over the past year, more than 5,000 organizations and 1 in every 88 employees in the U.S. have turned to WorkplaceDynamics to better understand what’s on the minds of their employees. Through its workplace improvement offerings, WorkplaceDynamics provides solutions, training and tools to help clients improve their workplace.

PW Companies is the parent company of international retail brands, Del Sol and Cariloha. Del Sol is the world’s largest retailer of clothing and accessories that change color with sunlight, and Cariloha is the only multi-store retailer in the world to provide an entire store experience that’s completely merchandised with clothing, bedding and bath goods made from eco-friendly bamboo. PW Companies has an incredibly low turnover rate – more than 60 of its 110 employees have been with the company for 5-10+ years. Their office space emphasizes being passionate about what you do, having fun together at work and at non-work activities, being trustworthy, and working as a team.

“The main reason for our success as a company is our amazing people, and winning this award helps validate that,” said Jeff Pedersen, CEO and President of PW Companies. “We have more than 1,000 people who work for us in 28 countries and growing, and I love working with them – whether it’s in the stores on the front lines at our distribution center or at our corporate building. I trust them, I enjoy working with them and they have a burning desire to succeed. They continually amaze me with the obstacles they overcome and the feats they accomplish.”
