No. 2 Small Company: Boly:Welch Consulting | Recruiting

This company offers some pretty nice perks: spring break massages, an ice cream tab, and a Hood to Coast relay team. But what employees seem to really appreciate about this recruiting and consulting firm are the flexible schedules, family-friendly atmosphere and attention to work-life balance. “Not a day goes by that positions and processes aren’t considered to create a more equitable and positive environment in which to do our jobs and enjoy our lives,” says one employee. “Recruiting, historically, can be ruthless,” comments another employee. “But that is the farthest from the truth in this office. We laugh, we act as a giant team and we pay compliments forward.” Employees also like the fact that staff opinions count. “This is a very entrepreneurial environment,” says one worker. “The partners support initiatives that are raised as ideas from the team members.” Caring and supportive owners are another plus. “When we face a problem, they move heaven and earth to help fix it,” observes one employee. “There’s really no place like it.”

Those sentiments and benefits have helped land this company on the 100 Best list 9 times. It has been on the top 10 list three times.

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 New Yorker recently published a sharply worded critique of “disruptive innovation,” one of the most widely cited theories in the business world today. The article raises questions about the descriptive value of disruption and innovation  — whether the terms are mere buzzwords or actually explain today's extraordinarily complex and fast changing business environment. 

Update: We caught up with Portland's Thomas Thurston, who shared his data driven take on the disruption controversy.
