OpenSesame Named No. 27 Best Company to Work For in Oregon for 2021

Oregon Business recognizes OpenSesame as one of the state’s top workplaces

Portland, OR – 16 March 2021 – OpenSesame, the global elearning innovator, today celebrates its inclusion in Oregon Business’s 2021 list of the “100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon.” In its debut year, OpenSesame ranked No. 27 in the large company (100 or more employees) category.

The 100 Best Companies to Work For program ranks employers based on confidential responses from employees residing in Oregon to survey questions across several categories, including work environment, decision-making and trust, benefits and compensation, career development and learning. 

“In this past pandemic year, the 100 Best Companies survey takes on more meaning and importance than ever before,” the Oregon Business Journal stated in its announcement recognizing the winners. “These employers are evidence that there are businesses that care about keeping their workforces happy whatever the circumstances, and that despite one of the biggest changes to workplace norms ever experienced in a generation, companies can make it work and even come out better from the experience.”

Oregon Business highlighted OpenSesame’s professional development program as a standout based on employee feedback. In addition to its robust onboarding and company-wide training program, all full-time employees receive a full week of paid time off for continuing education, along with an reimbursement allowance equivalent to one week’s salary for conferences, courses, books and other expenses. 

“This recognition means a lot to us, especially because it’s based on feedback from our employees,” said Don Spear, CEO of OpenSesame. “Despite all the challenges of the past year, our employees continued to deliver exceptional support to our customers and learners, and we are extremely thankful to every member of our team for all they do to make OpenSesame a great place to work, even when we’re all working remotely.”
