Two important themes emerged in a comparison of the inaugural 100 Best Nonprofits survey and those from the 100 Best Company survey: The two groups of employees are very similar in the importance they place on what makes a great workplace, but their satisfaction levels with several key issues are very different.
The Idealist.org office is a place where a brighter future refers not to stock options but a gentle reshaping of society. That’s because the nonprofit aims to encourage more service, involvement and action from professionals and volunteers around the globe.
Tucked into a generic strip of offices off a heavily trafficked road in Salem, the Oregon Rehabilitation Center feels like the kind of place where every penny of the $1 million annual budget counts. But underneath that thrift runs a rich sense of cooperation and cheer. Because at the heart of it, these people like each other.
Oregon Business is proud to launch the 100 Best Nonprofits to Work For in Oregon this year to recognize nonprofits as key businesses critical to the economic health of the state, and ones that employ hundreds of thousands of Oregonians
