HILLSBORO, Ore., March 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Rosendin Electric, one of the nation's largest private electrical contractors and a 100% employee-owned company, was recognized in the March issue of Oregon Business magazine, ranking number 20 out of the 100 best places to work in Oregon in 2011. This is the second year that Rosendin Electric has been named to the list, and the company continues to rank as the highest ranking construction firm for employee satisfaction among large companies (100 employees or more).
Rosendin Electric qualified for the Top 100 Best Places to Work in the Oregon Business survey based on various criteria, including health benefits, wellness coverage, executive leadership and work environment. Employees also ranked the company above-average on factors such as the Employee Stock Ownership Plan, 401k matching, and career development, through continuous training opportunities.
Rosendin Electric prides itself on caring for its workers. An example of this is seen in its extensive safety program, which includes stretch-and-flex exercises to reduce job-related injuries, and by providing "stop work" cards that employees can use on the job site in the event of a safety hazard.
"This is the second year that Rosendin Electric has been singled out as a great place to work," said Brian Ruffner, Business Development Manager for Rosendin Electric. "We are 100-percent employee owned, so everyone has a stake in our success. That makes it easier to pull together toward a common objective, and create a work environment that is safer and more satisfying. Recognition by Oregon Business helps demonstrate to the market that we maintain a high standard of performance and excellence, and it helps us recruit and retain the best and the brightest."
