Sports apparel firm pushes fitness, team spirit

Baltimore-based sports apparel company Under Armour doesn’t require its 3,363 employees to be athletes, but it does look for new hires with a love of sports and fitness.

Reason: Team spirit is core to the company’s culture.

Each new hire attends a two-day classroom orientation, and then—regardless of job title—shuffles off to the distribution warehouse to pack orders and learn about shipping, retail and other basics of the organization’s operations.

Once onboard, employees have access to a subsidized gym on its campus, personal trainers and healthy meals and snacks—including some that come from an employee-maintained organic herb and vegetable garden.

Plus, employees get discounts on sporting event tickets—as well as on Under Armour apparel.
