No. 1 Small Company: Barran Liebman LLP

This Portland law firm keeps its employees happy by creating a community- oriented environment—in and outside of the office. “As a law firm, we have the ability to impact out community and we take that responsibility seriously,” says one employee. ”We integrate our community involvement with our sense of team and make participation easy and fun for everyone.”  The firm’s long list of volunteer activities include fundraising for Camp Ukandu, serving kids with cancer, adopting holiday families in need and supporting the St. Andrew Legal Clinic through the Race for Justice and Wine Auction. Employees are also fond of the company’s many perks: gift cards, staff appreciation week, and random bonuses during obscure holidays; like  Leap Day and the Fourth of July. Opportunities to socialize with coworkers are another plus: at this firm, summer parties, baby showers, and pizza and poker nights are the norm. Indeed, what many employees like best about working here is the upbeat, family-friendly atmosphere. Says one staff member: ”We just like to hang out with each other and have fun.”

Kudos to those leading the 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon.

The real story though should be why only 1 or 2 of those 100 companies are designers and producers of consumer and industrial products. Most of the rest are service providers or contractors.

The right sunglasses can protect your eyes and look cool at the same time. This being the 21st century, select shades are socially conscious, too. Portland brand Shwood uses wood and other natural materials and manufactures locally. Founded by Ann Sacks, the brand Fetch dedicates a portion of its profits to animal welfare. But whether you choose classic tortiseshell or aviator chic, please, shed the sunglasses when you walk in the door — and, of course, at night.

BY LINDA BAKER

Spring rains are the bane of an Oregon cherry farmer’s existence. Even a few sprinkles can crack the fruit so badly it’s not worth picking. Science to the rescue: Researchers at Oregon State University have developed a spray-on film that cuts rain-related cracking in half, potentially saving a season’s crop. The coating, patented as SureSeal, is made from natural chemicals similar to those found in the skins of cherries: cellulose, palm oil-based wax and calcium.
