MARCH 2009: THE 2009 100 BEST COMPANIES TO WORK FOR IN OREGON
What makes a great place to work? This year’s winners of our 16th annual 100 Best Companies show the way.
Oregon companies are indomitable. With the economy crashing and burning all around us, this was a record-breaking year for the 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon project: 372 organizations and nearly 30,000 employees took part in our 16th annual ranking of the 100 Best.
Sectors prominent among the 100 Best this year include professional services, with a strong showing from law and staffing firms, finance, construction, technology and marketing/communications. The Portland metro area continues to dominate 100 Best geographically with 69 companies, followed by the Willamette Valley (17), Central Oregon (six) and Southern Oregon (six). The 30,000 employees who completed the survey equal about 1.6% of those employed in the state.
