We know that creating a family-forward workplace takes courage and leadership. We also know that Oregon families – and businesses – do better when workplaces are flexible. And in the 21st century, it’s THE way to work.
That’s why, each year, we bring the When Work Works Award (formerly known as the Sloan Award) to Oregon. Winners of this award are among the most flexible and family-friendly in the country. These are workplaces that are leading the way to a better future, and we thank them from the bottom of our hearts.
Here are Oregon’s 2011 winners (located in Portland unless noted):
