The best places to work in Washington state
Nick Horton |   July 2013   |  FROM THE PRINT EDITION

From spectacular insurance benefits to inclusive workplace culture to generous work/life balance, the 100 Best Companies to Work For show how it’s done, year in and year out. The 15 firms profiled, in the estimation of our panel of judges, rose to the top of the 100 this year. (Find a complete PDF listing of the 100 Best Companies to Work For and clickable links to each category below.) The judges’ conclusions were based in part on data submitted anonymously by thousands of employees of the participating businesses. The research firm Fieldwork Webwork used the detailed responses to determine each company’s score in 12 categories, including such vital areas as communication, executive leadership, corporate culture and workplace environment.
For judging purposes, nominated companies were separated into five classifications: small firms (30 or fewer employees), midsize (31 to 100 employees), large (more than 100 employees), nonprofits and firms headquartered outside Washington. Congratulations to the Seattle Business magazine 100 best Companies to Work For of 2013!
