This year, over 14,000 Oregon employees completed the survey.

The 100 Best list recognizes large, medium and small companies for excellence in benefits and compensation, work environment, decision-making and trust, performance management, and career development and learning.

Oregon Business has conducted the annual study of best practices for the past 18 years. The survey has two parts a satisfaction survey completed by employees and a benefits survey completed by management. Rankings are derived from scores of both parts of the survey.
