The Oregonian Names Banfield Pet Hospital® an Oregon/Southwest Washington 2018 Top Workplaces Award Winner

Vancouver, WA September 27, 2018

Banfield Pet Hospital has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Oregonian, based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous, third-party survey.

“I’m incredibly proud to have Banfield named among The Oregonian’s Top Workplaces in 2018,” said Brian Garish, president of Banfield Pet Hospital. “At Banfield, we strive to be a workplace where our associates can live their purpose while building a career and a life they are proud of. We remain focused on listening to our associates’ voices and using their input to provide the best work environment, culture and development opportunities possible.”

Administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics) – a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools – the anonymous survey of Banfield associates in Oregon and Southwest Washington measured several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, among others.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement. Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy, it’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage.”
