Energy efficiency experts earn top ten ranking in annual list

For the fifth consecutive year, Evergreen Consulting Group has been named to Oregon Business magazine’s annual list of the 100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon. The company landed at number nine in the medium company category, earning a spot among the top ten for the second year in a row.

“Even as we have achieved this honor for five straight years, we still want to get even better,” said Roger Spring, president. “We plan to use the results and suggestions provided by our employees to improve the Evergreen experience.

We thank all of our team members and appreciate their input and positive comments. Each and every day they contribute to our unique and exceptional family, making Evergreen the great place that it is and a great place to work.”

The company’s 42 Oregon employees place high value on the company’s virtual office model, in which all employees work remotely. Staff surveys agreed that by avoiding a daily commute and having more flexibility in their hours, they are a more productive and efficient team. As one employee said, “this virtual company makes work/life balance phenomenal.”

Since 1994, Oregon Business magazine has surveyed companies to identify the best workplaces in the state. The 100 Best list recognizes large, medium and small employers for excellence in work environment, management and communications, decision-making and trust, career development and learning, and benefits and compensation. Rankings are based on confidential employee surveys and benefits reports. More than 9000 employees from 230 companies participate in the annual online survey.

In 2015, Evergreen’s work saved more than 273 million kilowatt hours of electricity for 25 clients across the country.
