The 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon

 

Employment in Oregon is almost back up to prerecession levels — and employers are having to work harder to entice talented staff to join their ranks. This year’s 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon project showcases the kind of quality workplaces that foster happy employees. 

Massage chairs, foosball tables, free food — these are just a few of the perks that the 100 Best Companies are providing to attract and retain staffers. The survey also highlights the growing desire of employees to work in flat, collaborative workplaces where open communication and shared decision making are the norm. 

More than 270 companies in the state from a variety of sectors participated in this year’s survey. Now in its 22nd year, Oregon Business Magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon survey continues to highlight best workplace practices that get businesses ahead.

Research methodology

We measure employee opinion on 20 workplace practices. Employers also answer a questionnaire on benefits. Employees rate their satisfaction — 83% of companies’ 100 Best scores — as well as the importance they attach to work environment, management and communications, decision making and trust, career development and learning, and benefits and compensation.
