Employer Benefits Survey Guidelines

A company representative familiar with your organization’s employment and benefits policies should complete the benefits (or employer) survey. It takes about 30 minutes. To access the Employer Survey, the representative will need the unique survey link sent to your company's 100 Best contact in the survey instructions.

22 years and counting

Each year since 1994, Oregon Business magazine has been proud to present the 100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon. The aim of the project — a survey conducted in the late summer and fall with results published in March — is to recognize and celebrate Oregon companies for their commitment to creating great places for their employees to work.  

Employee Survey questions

The survey is divided into six sections: Work Environment; Management & Communications; Decision-making & Trust; Career Development and Learning; Benefits & Compensation; and Sustainable Practices (used to determine the 100 Best Green Companies list). Within each section are 4 workplace qualities (10 in Sustainable Practices) on which employees rate satisfaction and importance. There is also an optional demographic section and two open-ended questions asking what employees like about their workplace and what they would like improved.
