Gerding Edlen Among Top 20 Places to Work in Portland
Oct 15, 2006
Development was named one of the top 20 places to work in Portland by Portland Monthly magazine. The fast-growing real estate developer is widely recognized for its commitment to environmental sustainability, from sustainable building practices to subsidizing employees' purchases of fuel-efficient cars.
To locate the best places to work in Portland, writers Jill Davis and Gillian Klucas turned to the employees themselves. Conducting surveys, on-site visits, and ample face time with management and employees, they selected Gerding Edlen as on of Portland's top places to work.
From green efforts and perks at work to supporting green choices at home (including a monthly payment towards the purchase of a fuel-efficient vehicle), Gerding Edlen employees are proud, excited, and inspired by the company. “‘They really do inspire you to do the right thing,’ says one young marketer who, out recently for two—paid—weeks after knee surgery, plans to make up the time. ‘It’d be like letting Dad down.’”
