Nike bags '100 Best Companies to Work For' award

12
Jan '06
Oreland based famous footwear seller NIKE Inc announced that it has been named by FORTUNE magazine for the first time as one of the country's '100 Best Companies to Work For.'

Nike is the only Oregon-based company on this year's list.

Ranking No. 100 on the list, Nike is recognized by FORTUNE for employee benefits such as campus fitness centers and a 50-percent discount on company products, as well as for the company's corporate responsibility efforts in addressing conditions in overseas contract factories.

Nike also is:

* one of only 25 companies on the list offering paid sabbaticals for employees;

* one of the 33 companies on the list offering an on-site childcare center; and

* among the 25 'most diverse' companies, with minorities representing 40 percent of Nike's 12,502 employees in the United States.

Women represent about 49 percent of the company's US workforce.

'Commitment to Nike employees and the communities where they live, work and play has always been at the forefront of their corporate principles,' said William D Perez, President and Chief Executive Officer, Nike Inc.

'To be recognized for this commitment from FORTUNE is truly an honor and one that reflects the years of hard work and dedication from all Nike employees globally.'

'The 100 Best Companies to Work For' list is compiled for FORTUNE based on two criteria: an evaluation of the policies and culture of each company, and the opinions of the company's employees.
