Edtech Company Learning.com Named Oregon Top Workplace for Third Consecutive Year
PORTLAND, Oregon – October 2, 2018 – For prospective employees who want to join a high-quality team focused on helping teachers transform learning for students through digital education, look no further than Learning.com. For the third consecutive year, the Portland-based company is an Oregon Top Workplace. Based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey sponsored by The Oregonian and administered by Workplace Dynamics, LLC, a research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement, the survey measured numerous aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connection.
“Learning.com is proud to be recognized as a Top Workplace for the third year in a row,” said Vicki Price, vice president of people development and performance at Learning.com. “We believe that a healthy, happy work culture promotes engaged, motivated employees and we strive to provide a culture that fosters collaboration, learning and excellence. We hire great people who are smart, caring, passionate, dedicated and love working together to create solutions that make a difference for teachers and students. This award is a tribute to our fantastic employees and leadership team.”

Learning.com also offers paid volunteer time off to allow employees to donate time to causes important to them and sponsors running events and fundraisers to encourage both wellness and philanthropy.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Workplace Dynamics. “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.”
