Ninkasi Brewing Company Named One of "The 100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon"Mar 05, 2013 Comments (0)
EUGENE, Ore.—Mar. 5, 2013—In an award ceremony hosted last Thursday at the Oregon Convention Center, Oregon Business Magazine announced its rankings for “The 2013 100 Best Companies to work for in Oregon,” listing Ninkasi Brewing Company as one of the top 25 best medium-sized companies to work for in Oregon. As the only Oregon brewery to make the list, this is Ninkasi’s first year ranking in the top 100.
In its 20th year ranking Oregon’s best 100 companies, Oregon Business Magazine collects annual employee surveys open to all companies across the state. To determine this year’s rankings, more than 13,000 employee surveys were collected, measuring both employee satisfaction and the importance employees place to a set of comprehensive workplace qualities, along with a benefits report from each company.
“We are very excited to be included in this year’s list, and given that it is based on staff surveys, it is very meaningful,” explains Nikos Ridge Ninkasi’s co-founder and CEO. “We look forward to continuing to develop Ninkasi as a great place to work, and living our core purpose to ‘Perpetuate Better Living’ through all aspects of our business.”
Since its start in 2006 by co-founders Jamie Floyd and Nikos Ridge, Ninkasi has grown to employ more than 80, with plans to add 40 additional full-time positions over the next five years.
