This recognition emphasizes Sprague’s commitment to creating an exceptional workplace environment based on the feedback and satisfaction of its team members.
Per a news release, the Top Workplaces award is a highly esteemed accolade in the business community, highlighting organizations that excel in fostering a positive work culture and maintaining strong employee engagement. This award recognizes companies throughout Southwest Washington and Oregon and is driven by confidential employee feedback. The survey measured 15 key cultural drivers that play a pivotal role in shaping a work environment, such as alignment, execution and connection.
Neary 3,000 organizations applied and less than 5 percent were selected. Sprague is the only pest control company to make the list. The award encompasses Sprague’s Portland, Eugene and Medford branches.
“It’s always been our goal to create an environment where voices are heard, team members feel valued, and where everyone feels like they have a spot at the table,” Leila Starwich, director of people operations at Sprague, said in the news release. “Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for everyone at Sprague.”
