January 17, 2013

Build-A-Bear Workshop was named to FORTUNE magazine’s annual list of “100 Best Companies to Work For” for the 5th year in a row and we are BEARY excited!

The list was revealed in a surprise announcement this morning on FORTUNE’s iPad App. Details and features on all of the honored companies will be posted online tomorrow at We can’t wait to have more details when the full announcement is made and even more info when the print issue is released next week.

Sustaining a position on this employer of choice list for 5 years is truly one of our most PAWSOME accomplishments. Our Associates are the heart of our brand. When our Associates have fun, our Guests have fun. Thanks to all–our Associates, our Guests, our vendors and all stakeholders for helping us be amongst the BEARY best!

The last few days have been exciting as we celebrated the inauguration of our new President but today was even more icing.

This morning at 6 AM ET Fortume Magazine announced it’s annual list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For and Build-A-Bear Workshop made the top 100!! This is HUGE. We have talked about this for years and we always read the annual list for inspiration from some of America’s largest companies. NOW we are part of that inspiration.

This is a huge honor for our associates as it is all about them. If I could have given them a gift that says, “you are the gold standard in providing a great place to work, ” this would be it.  We had a small celebration at BQ today–I think we were all in shock.

To all our Guests and Associates  (including our BQ pooches) world wide thanks for being part of our family. You make us proud.

Hugs to all,
