25 Sep Oregon Top Places to Work
I’m very happy to announce that TTR was honored this week by the Oregonian for the fifth year in a row, making the Top Workplaces list in Oregon, taking the number 3 spot out of 42 mid-sized top companies ranging from 100-499 employees. In addition to that I was awarded their Leadership Award, which is a great compliment and I’m grateful for the acknowledgment.
It was taken into account that even through the COVID-19 pandemic, our professionals have remained productive and in high spirits, most moving to working remotely. Virtual meetings are lively and allow TTR professionals to continue the “family dinner” style get togethers as teams, sometimes the goal being simply to see one another’s faces.
We were proud to come together as a team to create care packages for all TTR professionals with essentials such as food, high in-demand paper goods, and anything else they were in need of. This included nearly 6 weeks’ worth of supplies. We even ordered company sweatpants and t-shirts and had those sent out so that the TTR professionals could be comfortable. We also provided cell phone cost reimbursements for everyone in the company.
We got with every professional to find out what they needed at home and had monitors, desks, and chairs delivered to their homes in many cases. In some cases I went so far as to get high-speed internet set up for professionals that didn’t have adequate internet access. I created a company holiday and encouraged professionals to take 3-day weekends as needed going forward. This was made available without judgement or fear of losing one’s job.
I love hearing feedback from our team like this:
“I get to help people. I’m trusted to do my job, and there’s always support if I need help. I love that we have fun while getting things done. Most of all, I love my job because I get to work with amazingly caring and kind (and funny!) people and improve people’s lives.” – TTR Professional
Many thanks to The Oregonian for this acknowledgment and we will continue to dedicate ourselves to providing an environment that offers professionals a Top Place to Work.
