The 21st annual 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon list was announced Thursday night at an awards dinner at the Oregon Convention Center. There were 248 companies participating in this year’s 100 Best survey, which analyzes Oregon companies’ best practices toward creating great places to work. This year, 11,000 Oregon employees completed the survey.
The 100 Best list recognizes large, medium and small companies for excellence in work environment, management and communications, decision-making and trust, career development and learning, and benefits and compensation. The winners and their rankings were revealed at the 100 Best awards dinner and are published in the March 2014 issue of Oregon Business and online at OregonBusiness.com.
“Being recognized by employees as a ‘best company to work for’ is no small achievement," says Oregon Business editor Linda Baker. "We are proud to showcase companies that are creating a strong and positive workplace culture.”
