Oregon Business magazine ranked Green Acres Landscape, Salem, Oregon, at No. 32 for large companies on its “100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon” list for 2021. This is the first year that GAL has been recognized on the list.

Results from a confidential survey of employees earned Salem’s Green Acres Landscape recognition for being among the best in Oregon.

The survey measured employees’ opinions on 20 workforce practices, as well as satisfaction. Employers also answer a questionnaire on benefits. Factors that were measured included work environment, management and communication, decision-making and trust, career development and learning, and benefits and compensation.

The Oregon Business team highlighted the company’s family feel and charitable giving as reasons GAL employees wanted to come to work. One of GAL’s 120 employees was cited in the list, saying, “We support important causes continually throughout the year. We are a green company striving to support its goal in our everyday work practices.”
