FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
G5 Honored As One of Oregon’s Best 100 Companies to Work For
Strong company culture and an entrepreneurial spirit drive G5’s success
Bend, Oregon – March 17, 2015
G5®, the leading provider of Digital Experience Management® (DXM®) software and services in the property management industry, today announced it has been named to Oregon Business’s 2015 List of the 100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon for the second year. The digital marketing company ranked #22 in the large company category.
“We are lucky to have a team of amazing people who really care about our customers,” said G5 CEO Dan Hobin. “We foster a culture based on quality of life and balance. When we succeed with this culture, we create an environment where people want to work. When employees are happy, customers are happy, and everyone wins.”
The honor from Oregon Business is the third recognition for G5 in the past year. In October 2014, Outside Magazine named G5 to its national list of Best Places to Work, and professional services firm Deloitte listed G5 on its Technology Fast 500™ for the fifth consecutive year in December 2014. G5’s executive team attributes this level of recognition to G5’s growth, fueled by increasing demand for its digital marketing platform and services, combined with a focus on work-life balance and exceptional wellness programs that include reduced-cost gym memberships, rewards for green commuting, and weekly deliveries of fresh fruit and vegetables through a community-supported agriculture program.
Employee surveys and employer benefits surveys determine the results for the list. Employee surveys make up 83% of a company’s score at 500 points. Five categories are evaluated in the questionnaire: Work Environment, Management & Communications, Decision-Making & Trust, Career Development & Learning, and Benefits & Compensation. The employer benefits portion of the survey is scored on a 100-point scale, making up the remaining 17% of the overall score. G5’s final score was 486.3 out of a possible total of 600. “One of the things that emerged this year is that success hinges on the ability to engage employees with workplace culture where open communication and employee freedom to innovate are the norm,” said Kim Moore, lead researcher on the survey. “The overall score of the 100 best companies was the highest it has been in the last 11 years of the survey since 2004.”
According to Oregon Business, over 270 companies participated in 2014 to determine the list. The top 100 performing companies represent 16 sectors and are made up of 33 large-sized companies (over 100 employees), 33 medium-sized companies (35-99 employees), and 33 small-sized companies (15-34 employees). Company rankings are listed in the March issue of Oregon Business. The top 100 companies were also honored at a February 26th banquet at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland.
