Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) March 02, 2015
ICON Staffing Network, which includes ICON Medical Network, ICON Technical Network, and ICON Retail Network, was recognized for the first time at Oregon Business magazine's 100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon 22nd annual event. Over 270 companies in the state from a variety of sectors participated in this year’s survey. ICON Staffing Network was awarded as the second Best Company to Work for in Oregon in the small business category.
“Something we strive for at ICON is the ability to provide our team with whatever it takes to make them the best they can be,” said Joel Slenning, Founder and CEO of ICON Staffing Network. “This award is an honor and reflects what we work hard for every day for our team and the clients and candidates we serve.”
The list is compiled from an employee satisfaction survey by Oregon Business magazine, which rates satisfaction and importance in six broad survey categories: work environment, management and communications, decision-making and trust, career development and learning, benefits and compensations, and sustainability practices. The survey also analyzes rankings on 30 workplace characteristics (on a scale of -3 to +3).
ICON Staffing Network was highlighted during the award ceremony for its open-office design allowing employees to collaborate, and the leadership eschewing micromanagement. A positive attitude prevails, and five weeks of paid vacation doesn’t hurt morale either.
“Being in the staffing industry, we are constantly becoming more aware of what is most important to people in the workplace,” said Slenning. “And there is no doubt a direct correlation to the success of your business and the happiness of your team.”
