Woodinville, Wash. – For the second time in the last three years, Precor has been named a finalist in the Washington’s Best Workplaces competition, sponsored by the Puget Sound Business Journal. Precor was also a finalist in 2010.
This year, Precor is one of 85 companies that have been named to the prestigious list. The winners in the small, medium, large and extra-large company sizes, will be named during a special awards event on August 9th at Safeco Field.
“Being named a finalist for Washington’s Best Workplaces is an honor in itself,” said Paul Byrne, Precor President. “The fact that the honor is based on the response of our own employees makes it even more gratifying.”
The Puget Sound Business Journal developed this comprehensive award program to identify and celebrate companies that employees think are great. Qualification is determined by employee surveys completed in May. Results are based on the percentage of employees completing the survey and scores across a variety of employee satisfaction and engagement measures.
