The Gunter Group is excited to be recognized as #3 in the small company category on the Oregon Business ‘100 Best Companies to work For’  in Oregon. The company received the honor at the 23rd Annual 100 Best Companies celebration dinner on March 3 at the Oregon Convention Center. Upon receiving the award, Ashleigh Gunter, Partner, said, “It really is an honor and I am humbled, but the credit really goes to our entire team; they earned this.”  

The event honors the top 100 companies to work for in Oregon, divided into three categories based on company size. The evening focused on recognizing the people that are essential for businesses to succeed – employees. The Top 100 ranking is based on confidential employee surveys with questions related to workplace satisfaction including benefits, management, trust, work environment, and career development. This year, over 235 companies and 10,730 employees participated in the survey.

As part of the survey, one of the  consultants in The Gunter Group wrote the firm has “a high caliber of professionals who want nothing more than for all the team members to succeed and do what’s best for our clients.” Ralph Pero, a consultant with the firm, said “Mike and Ashleigh [Gunter] recognize and embrace the power of great people and empower the company to pursue a common culture driving collaboration and success.”

Over the past two years, The Gunter Group has not only been recognized as one of Oregon’s best employers, but has also earned high marks in employee engagement, ranking in the 92nd percentile of small businesses. We are proud of these achievements and continue to find innovative ways to create a positive and rewarding environment, while ensuring the best client delivery.  Kimberly Darin, a consultant at the firm, said “I want to retire here- which is rare for a young person to say about a company.”  

The Gunter Group is proud to be recognized as part of this group of outstanding companies, and especially honored to be on the list for the second consecutive year.
