We’re excited to be named one of Washington’s 100 Best Companies to Work For—for the fifth time.
For a company that grows as much and as fast as we do, change is pretty much constant. That’s why it’s so thrilling to see our name on this list again—it reminds us that listening to our employees can take us wherever we want to go.
And it’s our people who got us here. Recognition from Seattle Business Magazine is determined entirely by staff participation and feedback. Our employees responded to a survey about their experiences working at Yesler, from workplace culture and rewards to executive leadership and corporate responsibility. What we learned is that Yesler has what so many companies wish they had: employees who love where they work.
But making the list again means much more than that.
It means that we’ve created a company worth working for. Our focus on creating a healthy, happy environment has helped us find and keep the best talent around. We believe it’s up to us to support employee growth both inside and outside Yesler, so we offer professional development funds, travel grants, and plenty of opportunities for charitable giving.
It means we’ve fostered a culture worth being part of. Not only are our teams smart as hell, they’re collaborative, creative, and strong advocates for each other. Yesler is committed to excellence in everything we create—including the relationships we build at work. (No need to be shy about expressing opinions around here, either.)
Our dev Nick Harberg says it best: “I come to work for my coworkers. I’ve never worked in another place where everyone supports each other as a matter of process.”
It means we can deliver great work to our clients. When our employees trust each other enough to speak their minds, we can focus on being the best industry experts we can be and deliver work that has a meaningful impact on our clients’ businesses. We’re proud of the work we do here—we’re always ready to sink our innovative chops into the next challenge, together.
And—in case it isn’t clear already—we know how to have a pretty good time.
So, we’re honored to have made the list again. Our people are our most important assets; they’re what make Yesler so Yesler-y. They make all of this not just possible, but enjoyable. Memorable. And ultimately, they make our company successful.
As we continue to grow, we learn more about what it means to empower our employees and set them up for success. Every year, it gets better. We get bigger. We get smarter. We get happier.
We can’t wait to see what’s in store.
