For the first year, Ater Wynne has been named one of the 100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon by Oregon Business Magazine. The list was determined by an anonymous employee survey in 2014.
"We take our commitment to what we do and how we do it seriously, which means creating an environment where we all want to come to work," says Managing Partner Doug Morris."We have participated in the survey for many years, and have always found the feedback valuable in telling us what is working and where we could focus and implement improvements."
In the survey results, scores tied to teamwork, flexibility and fairness in the workplace were higher than they ever have been in the past, as well as high scores connected to management decisions and communications.
On Saturday, July 26, 2014 marked Ater Wynne’s entry into the world of Tour de Cure! Tour de Cure is a series of fundraising cycling events held in 44 states nationwide to benefit the American Diabetes Association. Ater Wynne partnered with our long time client, MacKay Sposito, who has been participating in this event for several years. Our team name was the Two Wheeled Sherpas and over the last several months we were able to raise a total of $9660.00 for the ADA!!
Overall this was a great team building event that gave us a unique opportunity to partner with a significant client, while raising money for a worthy cause.
Ater Wynne was ranked #4 in the Top Ten Most Admired Companies in Oregon in the Professional Services category by the Portland Business Journal. Last year Ater Wynne ranked #8. This is also the eighth time in nine years the firm has placed in the top ten in this category. More than 150 different law and accounting firms were nominated, so it is quite an achievement to be named to the top ten list.
Most Admired Companies awards are determined through confidential ballots sent by the Portland Business Journal to CEOs of approximately 1,800 companies based in Oregon or with significant operations in the state. Categories included Technology, Manufacturing, Health Care, Professional Services, Financial Services, Commercial Real Estate, and Agricultural and Forest Products.
