No. 1 Small Company: Rose City Mortgage

It’s been a tough road over the past few years in the industry that this Portland company specializes in. But employees here never thought twice about getting through it together, as a team — and they have. They can telecommute 100 percent of the time if they choose, and monthly company meetings have been described as more life therapy sessions than business meetings. Rose City Mortgage also banded together for a weight loss competition last year that donated $5 to the Oregon Food Bank for every pound lost. Says one employee, “We constantly pay it forward, looking for ways to help others.”

I am not surprised to see Tec Labs once again in your top 100. Steve Smith and the employees truly deserve recognition for the dynamic workplace they've created and the extraordinary results they've achieved.

Congratulations Steve and all the gang at Tech Labs, and you too OB for getting it right again!
