2010 List of the 100 Best Nonprofits to Work For in Oregon

nonprofitlogo2010_web

Almost 5,000 nonprofit employees from more than 150 organizations around the state participated in the second annual 100 Best Nonprofits to Work For in Oregon survey, and they had a lot to say about what it takes to be a great place to work.

nonprofitlogo2010_web

Almost 5,000 nonprofit employees from more than 150 organizations around the state participated in the second annual 100 Best Nonprofits to Work For in Oregon survey, and they had a lot to say about what it takes to be a great place to work. What did it take to be among The Best? An organization had to create an environment of trust, professionalism and care, along with providing training, support and career opportunities. And sometimes it was important to allow a dog to roam, be flexible with schedules and to laugh. A lot. When that happened, employees gave their loyalty, dedication and hard work.

Oregon Business launched this new project to recognize nonprofits as key businesses critical to the economic health of the state, employing hundreds of thousands of Oregonians. This specially designed survey, which was inspired by the 100 Best Companies project, was comprised of an employee questionnaire and an independent assessment of the employer’s workplace practices. It was launched in partnership with The Nonprofit Association of Oregon, which helped craft the employee survey. Nonprofits and not-for-profits were eligible and there was no cost to enter the survey. Research partner Davis, Hibbitts and Midghall and Oregon Business research editor Brandon Sawyer used these surveys to create the 100 Best ranking.

And now the drum roll. Here are the 2010 100 Best Nonprofits to Work For in Oregon. We celebrate your great workplaces.

Methodology

Employee survey

The survey was voluntary and free of charge. Participating nonprofits had to employ at least 10 paid Oregon workers at the time of the survey. Organizations were categorized as small if they had 10-24 employees worldwide; medium if they employed 25-74; and large if they employed 75 or more. For the 2010 survey nearly 5,000 Oregon workers rated their satisfaction with 155 organizations in 50 workplace qualities — 10 in each of the following categories:
1. Benefits and compensation: health coverage, fitness and wellness, retirement plan, compensation, employee retention.
2. Work environment: scheduling, diversity, family balance, teamwork, fun, technology, community support, policies and procedures.
3. Decision-making and trust: collaboration and cooperation, creativity, trust and openness, organizational pride, ethical standards.
4. Performance management: performance feedback and goals, employee and employer accountability, rewards and acknowledgement.
5. Career development and learning: opportunities, promotions, employee training, educational support, management diversity and communications.

Employer benefits survey

Organization representatives answered more than 50 questions covering a comprehensive set of benefits including health and wellness, time off, family-friendly policies, work scheduling, incentives, retirement plans and culture.

Scoring

The employee survey counted for 5/6 of a nonprofit’s score. For each organization, the average employee satisfaction rating was calculated in each of the five categories above on a scale of 0-100. The benefits survey was also scored on a 100-point scale, accounting for the remaining 1/6 of the overall score, resulting in a total possible score of 600.
