The Oregonian Names Sequoia Equities, Inc. a Winner of the Oregon/Southwest Washington 2017 Top Workplaces Award

Walnut Creek, CA, October 21, 2017 --( Sequoia has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Oregonian. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few.

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day - the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

“It has been amazing to watch Sequoia grow its footprint in the Pacific Northwest over the last six years and truly incredible to see the success of the company in this region as a result of the combined efforts of our onsite teams, corporate office, and investors,” said Rita Crawford, Regional Portfolio Manager at Sequoia. “Sequoia continuously strives to improve customer experience, for both our internal and external customers. This constant evaluation and dedication to improvement plays a crucial role in our accomplishments and recognition like this. We are honored to be named one of the top employers for the Pacific Northwest and can’t thank each of our team members enough for their contributions and endless supply of greatness!”
