We selected the 2012 100 Best Green Companies based on Sustainable Practices sections in both the employee and employer surveys completed last year by 20,309 employees from 431 for-profit companies and nonprofit organizations. Participation in the 100 Best survey is voluntary and free of charge. Companies needed at least 15 full- or part-time Oregon employees at the time of the survey; nonprofits needed at least 10 employees or qualified volunteers.
For the 2012 survey, Oregon workers rated their satisfaction and importance in 10 statements related to sustainable practices.
Employer benefits survey
Employer representatives also answered 15 questions about their company or nonprofit’s sustainable business practices.
The employee survey counted for two thirds of the overall score with average employee satisfaction and importance ratings each counting for 100 points. The employer benefits survey is also scored on a 100-point scale, accounting for the other third of the overall score, and resulting in a total possible perfect score of 300 points.
How to enter the 100 Best:
To be considered for the 100 Best Green Companies, employers must sign up for the general 100 Best Companies survey (beginning in August) or the 100 Best Nonprofits survey (beginning in April).
