SEATTLE—Sept. 1, 2010—Nyhus Communications LLC (http://nyhus.com), a leading Seattle-based strategic communications and advocacy firm, today announced that it has been named to Seattle Business magazine’s annual list of Washington’s 100 Best Companies to Work For 2010 and the annual Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000 list, which ranks the top 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the nation.
Nyhus was selected to the Best Companies to Work For list based on criteria that evaluated internal communication, strong leadership and strong core values essential to developing a successful enterprise. The criteria were determined by a comprehensive statewide survey of more than 10,000 employees across a range of industries.
“Recognition as one of Washington’s best companies to work for is a great honor and reinforces the quality of the company culture we have worked hard to create for our people and clients,” said Roger Nyhus, President and CEO of Nyhus Communications.
Seattle Business magazine ranks companies based on information submitted by company representatives and the results of employee surveys. A panel of distinguished judges then decides on the final rankings for each category. The five categories included: Large Companies, Large Companies Headquartered Outside of Washington, Midsize Companies, Small Businesses and Nonprofit Organizations.
Seattle Business magazine focused on recognizing companies that valued investment in human capital and its resulting effect on business performance. A full list of the winners and various company profiles is available at: http://www.seattlebusinessmag.com/article/100-best-companies-work-0.
