BEAVERTON, Oregon – March 8, 2017. Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), is pleased to be voted as one of the ‘100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon’. Oregon Business Magazine’s annual list and company ranking are based on employee surveys covering several key areas of performance.
“We had great participation with 62% of our Beaverton employees responding to the survey,” said Rachelle Basaraba, Human Resources Manager, Milestone Systems. “For a company our size, Oregon’s Best required that at least 15 employees take the survey — we had 65, which shows really big engagement!”
The annual ‘100 Best’ list is comprised of the top large, medium, and small companies that participate in the survey each year. Milestone earned a 12th position ranking among participating medium-sized companies. Employee survey questions span six major categories:
1) Work Environment
2) Management & Communications
3) Decision-Making & Trust
4) Career Development & Learning
5) Benefits & Compensation
6) Sustainable Practices
“We scored very well, especially in several areas of the survey, including Overall Working Environment (95% satisfaction), Employee Benefits (94.4% satisfaction), Employee Development and Career Path (87.2% satisfaction),” said Basaraba. “I think even here in Beaverton, Milestone has that European and Scandinavian touch for achieving a good work/life balance, and employees really appreciate that.”
Milestone’s global headquarters is in Copenhagen, Denmark, and the U.S. headquarters for managing all of the Americas’ activities for the company was established in 2004 in Oregon. The Beaverton office manages almost 100 Milestone Americas employees, including Canada and Latin America. Milestone Systems counts 611 employees worldwide, in 18 country offices.
“Milestone is a great place to work and our employees have opportunities to grow. This is shown by the fact that we see a lot of internal promotions and team leader positions being created,” said Basaraba. “Our business is challenging, but also very rewarding. Our company is filled with talented, committed people who work hard, but also enjoy celebrating our successes as a team.”
