More than 800 guests from 77 companies attended the 21st annual 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon awards dinner and celebration. The gala took place February 27 at the Oregon Convention Center. Luke Kanies, CEO of Puppet Labs, delivered the keynote speech: a behind-the-scenes look at Oregon’s entrepreneurial culture. Providing comic relief, Oregon Business editor Linda Baker and research director Brandon Sawyer held a Portlandia-esque “fireside chat” explaining the methodology behind the 100 Best rankings. OPB’s “Morning Edition” host Geoff Norcross served as Master of Ceremonies. The festivities concluded with an awards ceremony honoring the top 10 best companies to work for in Oregon.
