Seven Washington firms on Counselor magazine list of best places to work

Counselor magazine’s 2010 list of best places to work in the ad-specialty business includes seven Washington firms.

The annual list, which recognizes innovative and worker-friendly programs, this year had a total of 75 companies in the U.S. and Canada.

The state list:  Catalyst Marketing (Seattle), Sunrise Identity (Woodinville), Go USA (Wenatchee), iClick (Seattle), Greater China (Bellevue), Image Source & Branded Solutions by Edgar Martinez (Kirkland), and SanMar (Preston).

The full list of 75 covers a wide gamut of large and small, geographically diverse, firms.  The top best place is Dacasso, a Gainesville, Fla.-based supplier that emphasizes fun and team-building programs and rewards. An interactive map of the 75 is online.

No Idaho companies hit the list. 
The local version, the Sloan Awards, recently were announced by Greater Spokane Incorporated. Those awards also honor companies for offering workers benefits and flexible options to help balance work and life. Associated Industries; CH2M Hill; and Humanix Staffing and Recruiting were the winners of this year's Sloan Awards.

Our blog post on the winners is also online.
