What is it that makes for a great workplace? For every company on this year’s 100 best list, it’s a combination of solid, tangible benefits like health insurance, retirement plans and flexible schedules mixed with other, more colorful and less obvious elements. Maybe it has to do with how a company stuck together through a downturn or the way it celebrated a record year. Perhaps it’s how the work a business does aligns with the values of its employees or how the company actually listens when its workers talk. Or maybe it’s the fact that your company helped bring to life the Na’vi, the 9-foot-tall blue humanoids who inhabit the fictional world of Avatar.

Whatever the mix, it works. And though it’s different for each business, the end product almost always comes out the same: happy employees, successful companies and a spot on our annual 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon list.
