Capitol Auto Group // No. 3 Medium Company

The car industry may be tanking, but not the esprit de corps at Salem’s Capitol Auto Group. Ninety percent of the car dealership’s 182 employees donated a total of $30,000 to the United Way last year.

Giving to the United Way is as much a part of working at Capitol Auto Group as selling or servicing cars. “We just believe in giving back,” says owner Scott Casebeer. “We do make it fun.” Casebeer throws a hamburger feed to celebrate the day that pledge cards are turned in. Whether it’s giving to United Way, coaching Little League, or helping the Red Cross, the culture of community involvement creates a family atmosphere that ties employees together.

Employees are also given responsibility in running the dealership by volunteering to serve on committees focused on topics such as workplace safety. Casebeer strives to “manage openly,” and doesn’t hesitate to show the managers the business’ financial statements. “We have a say in what goes on,” writes another worker. Benefits haven’t been slashed, including mental health care. “We try to provide…the best benefit package that is available,” Casebeer says. “I truly believe they care about me and my family,” writes one worker.

The New Yorker recently published a sharply worded critique of “disruptive innovation,” one of the most widely cited theories in the business world today.

Update: We caught up with Portland's Thomas Thurston, who shared his data driven take on the disruption controversy.
