The process included more than 200 nominees and the completion of surveys by nominee-company employees throughout the state. Workplaces in four different categories were identified as Washington's best, based on their various employee benefit offerings, leadership culture and work/life balance philosophies.
In total, 85 companies made the grade as finalists. The event, which drew nearly 1,100 people, announced and honored the companies on the list and revealed bronze, silver and gold winners for each category.
The finalists – 25 small companies, 25 medium-sized companies, 25 large companies, and 10 extra-large companies – were celebrated at an awards event at Safeco Field on Aug. 9. The celebration included ballpark food and drink, walking the bases, speed pitching and an awards presentation.
The Seattle Mariners surprised the company with the greatest number of employees present with a suite at a future game.
