For the seventh straight time and eighth year overall, CFM has been listed as one of the 100 Best Employers to work for in Oregon. The firm placed 20th in the small business category of Oregon Business magazine’s annual ranking.
Making the 2011 list is a more meaningful experience, says CFM President Gary Conkling. “The last year has been a challenge for many companies, including ours."
"That makes this recognition all the more significant and gratifying,” Conkling adds. “We have worked hard to retain a healthy workplace culture despite hard economic times."
The Best Employer rankings are based on confidential employee surveys and a benefits report that is completed by each company. More than 190,000 employees of Oregon companies have voluntarily completed the annual survey during the past eight years, the magazine notes.
The aim of the 100 Best Employers project is to recognize and celebrate Oregon companies for their commitment to creating great places for their employees.
