The Partners Group, a leading Northwest based financial and insurance consulting firm, is honored to announce it has been named a Top Workplace in Oregon and Southwest Washington for seven years running in the Oregonian’s seventh annual Top Workplaces awards at the end of September. Find out why being named a top employer is so important to The Partners Group – The Oregonian interviews President and CEO, Rod Cruickshank on Oregon Live.

The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few. Typically, the winning companies are known for engaging their staff in a variety of well-rounded ways and encouraging innovation among employees.

Companies are usually nominated by their employees, which initiates the evaluation process. According to Doreen Barnhouse, Executive VP of Operations at The Partners Group, “Being recognized as a Top Workplace in Oregon and SW Washington continues to be a target goal we strive to achieve and maintain year over year. The information received from this survey is a measure of where improvements can be made in the future. We value our people and what is important to them. We use it to bring changes to the workplace that will give our employees the most satisfaction in the work they do every day for our customers.”
