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.
