Hillsboro, Ore.-based Rosendin Electric was recognized in the March issue of Oregon Business magazine as ranking No. 6 out of the 100 best places to work in Oregon. At number six, Rosendin Electric was the highest-ranking construction firm for employee satisfaction among the top 33 large companies (100 employees or more).

This is the first time that Rosendin Electric participated in the Oregon Business survey, which uses various criteria to determine the best places to work, including health benefits, wellness coverage, executive leadership, work environment, and career development. Rosendin Electric’s employees ranked the company based on such factors as the employee stock ownership plan, 401k matching, requiring all workers to receive 16 hours of training annually, providing above-average health benefits, and granting 17 days of personal time per year. Rosendin Electric also prides itself on caring for its workers through its safety program, which includes extensive safety protocols, roving inspectors, daily stretch and flex exercises to reduce job-related injuries, and issuing stop work cards that any employee can use on the jobsite in the event of a safety hazard.

“What makes Rosendin Electric such a great place to work is the fact it is 100% employee owned,” says Brian Ruffner, business development manager for Rosendin Electric. “I have been in the industry for 26 years, and I have never seen another company where everyone works together so efficiently to achieve a common goal. Everyone here has an attitude of accountability as one of the company’s owners.”

Ruffner adds that one of the company’s greatest accomplishments is recruiting high-quality talent to maintain Rosendin Electric’s reputation for quality and excellence. Recognition by Oregon Business magazine will help with recruitment and help promote Rosendin Electric’s reputation for excellence in the Oregon construction market.
