Record 103 winners for Journal’s Best Places to Work

A record 103 companies and organizations have earned a spot in the Business Journal’s 10th annual Best Places to Work in the North Bay.

The recipients, who will be recognized at an awards reception Sept. 30 and featured in a special section of the publication, include eight 10-time winners and nearly two dozen first-time winners including such prominent North Bay companies as Jackson Family Wines, Raptor Pharmaceuticals, Mike’s Bikes, GC Micro and American AgCredit.

“We are over-the-top thrilled with this year’s recipients,” said Business Journal Publisher Brad Bollinger. “The recipients cover a broad range of industries and range from small companies to the region’s largest technology company, Keysight Technologies.

“This program started out humbly in 2006 with 24 winners and here we are today with more than 100. And once again, it’s not because we made it easier. These winners rose to the challenge with an average employee satisfaction score that was higher than last year.”

The awards are co-presented by founding underwriter Nelson along with underwriters Exchange Bank and Kaiser Permanente.

The 10-time winners are Burr Pilger Mayer, Exchange Bank, First Community Bank, Ghirardo CPA, Kaiser Permanente’s Santa Rosa Medical Center and San Rafael Medical Center, Redwood Credit Union and Valley Tire & Brake.

“These are eight very special organizations,” Bollinger said. “To be selected any year is an achievement. To do so for 10 consecutive years through a brutal recession and years of rapid change is testimony to the enduring strength of these organizations.”

The recipients are selected based on the results of anonymous employee surveys and a review by the Journal editorial staff of worker comments and company applications. More than 7,500 surveys were submitted, and the winning companies represent nearly 16,800 employees.
