At the Mountain Association, we believe in our employees and strive to provide the best work environment possible.
We provide a competitive and comprehensive benefits program, providing paid parenting leave, employer-funded health insurance and subsidized family health insurance among other generous benefits. We support and encourage a healthy work-life balance. Employees also develop a learning plan each year as part of our commitment to personal and professional development.
As a hybrid workplace, our employees work with their supervisor to identify the option that best fits their role and workstyle. These options include working in-person at one of our three office locations, working remotely, or adopting a hybrid work schedule that combines office time with remote work. We require that employees live in Kentucky and are within a reasonable commuting distance from one of our three offices. We have several things in place in ensure that we continue our highly collaborative workplace culture even as a hybrid workplace. For example, several times a year, staff gather in-person for “Deeper Dive” workshops, which provide learning opportunities on various topics. We also gather for holidays, hikes or other fun meet-ups throughout the year, which allow us more time to be together as an organization and as co-workers. To further foster a healthy culture, our “Culture Building Studio” meets virtually once a month to discuss workplace ideas in a casual forum.
We also aim to keep the organization’s values aligned with our operations, and prioritize health and sustainability in our purchasing, energy use, fringe benefits and office services. For example, we make an extra effort to provide staff with healthy snacks when we gather in-person; use environment and people friendly cleaning products; and more. Our main Berea office is powered by solar, and our walls are decorated with Appalachian art. Our employees also have opportunities to gather for safe, fun and healthy activities, such as picnics, hiking, and book clubs.
We are an equal opportunity employer and have several important policies in place to ensure our hiring process welcomes individuals from diverse backgrounds. Our position descriptions are reviewed to ensure the minimum requirements we list are as accessible as possible. We explicitly encourage candidates from a diverse background to apply, we advertise our positions through a wide variety of outlets, and our hiring teams receive ongoing training on questioning their impressions and implicit biases. We are continually reviewing our procedures on our journey to become a more equitable and diverse organization.
We invite you to join us as we work toward a brighter Appalachian future.
