For 19 years, Oregon Business has been surveying employers statewide to find out just what it takes to be a great place to work. While it’s always a mix of factors that make some companies more attractive to employees than others, the tendency is often to highlight the more singular, tangible benefits such as massages and paid sabbaticals, lavish soirées and bring-your-pet-to-work days. While we found plenty of those this year — worm composting bins and company Snuggies to name a few — what stands out even more this time around are benefits that aren’t as easy to define: the uniting influence of a mission, employee independence, executives playing on the same company volleyball team as day laborers. See interviews from some of the 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon winners to see what makes their company a great place to work.
