For the fifth straight year, CFM has been judged one of Oregon’s Best 100 companies. CFM has made Oregon Business magazine’s annual ranking six times since the program began in 1995.
The rankings are based on confidential employee surveys and a benefits report completed by each company. This year CFM placed 30 on the list of small companies, up from 32 in 2008. The complete list appears in the March 2009 issue of Oregon Business. The announcement was made February 26.
The aim of the 100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon project is to recognize and celebrate Oregon companies for their commitment to creating great places for their employees. The data was collected last fall.
“Oregon companies are indomitable,” magazine editors say about the 2009 survey. “With the economy crashing and burning all around us, this was a record-breaking year for the 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon project – 372 organizations and nearly 30,000 employees took part in our 16th annual ranking of the 100 Best.”
"As it did last year, CFM has made it a goal to be back on the list in 2010 – our 20th anniversary,” says CFM President Gary Conkling. "We view this ranking as a report card on whether we are living up to our own values."
