0313 100BestFeature OpenerIf there was one word that came up most during the interviews for this year’s profiles of the 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon, it was “family.”

Whether it was co-workers who describe their colleagues as family, spouses and children who are welcomed into a company like family, hospice nurses who build relationships with families, or firms that encourage and allow employees to take care of their own families above all else, the concept of family courses through this year’s best companies.

“Family for us is No. 1,” says Shelli Anderson, vice president at Pacific Benefit Consultants in Eugene.

Judging by how often talk and comments focused on family in this, our 20th edition of the 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon, it’s at the top of the list for a lot of other Oregon companies, too.
