At Cascade, we believe deliberate recognition is a sign of a great employer. And when a great employer gets recognized for being outstanding, we’d like to take a moment to congratulate them!

For the past 27 years, Oregon Business magazine has conducted the 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon survey. Participation in the 2020 survey is now open to for-profit employers.

Eleven years ago Oregon Business added a survey of the nonprofit sector, in which Cascade now participates and was recently honored at #15 in the small nonprofit category for 2019. Participation in this survey is typically conducted late spring/early summer.

Both the for-profit survey and the nonprofit survey lists organizations that are at the top of their game in creating rewarding workplaces for employees. A recurring theme for this year’s best was emphasis on flexibility – more than anything, the most satisfied employees appreciated the ability to set their own schedules and balance their work with their personal lives. Flat hierarchy was another workplace characteristic favored by employees, along with employees feeling most valued in work environments that welcome feedback and act on their suggestions and recommendations.

We couldn’t help but notice the Cascade Members that made the recent nonprofit list as well. It takes a lot of work and dedication to make a great workplace, and we congratulate the following organizations for their success.

For large organizations (50 or more Oregon employees), those rankings were:

  • Bridgeway Recovery Services, #15
  • Capital Manor, #11
  • CareOregon, #23
  • Cascade Health, #27
  • College Housing Northwest, #32
  • Energy Trust of Oregon, #19
  • Partnerships in Community Living, #31
  • Rainbow Adult Living, #7

For medium organizations (20 to 49 Oregon employees):

  • Cat Adoption Team, #24
  • Full Access, #10

For small organizations (fewer than 20 Oregon employees):

  • Amani Center, #24
  • Green Electronics Council, #28
  • Western Energy Institute, Tied #7

Congratulations to you all!
