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 healthy work-life balance, and a welcoming culture. Our employees also have opportunities to gather for fun and healthy activities, such as picnics, kayaking, hiking, and book clubs. Employees develop a learning plan each year as part of our commitment to personal and professional development.
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; our water fountain is supplied from a local bottling company; and, our cleaning products are all environmentally friendly. Our office is powered by solar, and our walls are decorated with Appalachian art. Through our office composting program, our staff keeps approximately 65 pounds of compostable waste out of landfills each month.
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.
