No. 2 Medium Company: Delap LLP
In a thrifty profession burdened with grueling crunch times, this public accounting firm in Lake Oswego tallies its balance sheet generously in favor of a healthy work/life balance, allowing employees to work four10-hour shifts in the summer and telecommute, as well as investing in standing desks and a ping-pong table for much-needed breaks. Scavenger hunts, trivia nights, and go-kart races also bring staff together. One employee is grateful that, “Every year the firm provides meals during busy season and healthy and nutritious snack options to help compensate for the fluctuations in our work load.” Meanwhile professional development is fostered with continuing education, tuition reimbursement, and mentoring between employees at different career stages. Management nurtures and cares for each individual. According to one, it’s the “definition of the type of company that provides the best of both worlds, where an employee can have a great career with great possibility for advancement while also being home every night with your family.” The third-generation family-owned firm has a long tradition of listening to workers, one of whom says simply, “A voice that's heard is empowering.”
