The article, "The 100 Best Nonprofits to Work for in Oregon 2009," reported the results of an employee survey and an independent assessment of employers' workplace practices. Oregon Business magazine based the study on their "100 Best Companies" series.

The list of best large nonprofits included the Oregon Research Institute, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and the American Cancer Society. Multnomah ranked above well-known nonprofits such as the Girl Scouts, the Oregon Humane Society and OHSU Foundation.

"Multnomah has been a terrific place to work for a long time," said President Daniel Lockwood. "In fact, Christianity Today conducted a similar survey a few years ago with comparable results. Still, I'm always gratified to know that our employees are pleased with the quality of our workplace. So much of what makes Multnomah a special place to serve must be attributed to these high-quality men and women who sincerely endeavor to reflect Christ-likeness to one another in the workplace."

"It is good for us to periodically take the opportunity to reflect on how we're doing as an employer," Director of Human Resources, Tracy Moreschi, said. "I'm pleased that the results revealed not only that Multnomah is a great non-profit to work for, but also that our employees value Multnomah and are satisfied working here."
