We’re happy at work

A&R Solar won second place in the Puget Sound Business Journal’s annual Best Workplaces competition.

Businesses and organizations must be nominated to participate in the selection process. Employees answer anonymous survey questions about the work environment, benefits, and overall job satisfaction.

The top word that employees used to describe the work environment at A&R was “fun.” One hundred percent of employees answered that the senior leaders of the company value people as their most important resource.

Here are a couple of quotes from employees:

“The human element is always on top of my list of things a company should care about and promote to have a healthy positive workplace. A&R was created with the realization that the human element, along with one’s skills, knowledge, and ability is paramount to succeed. Great customers, great coworkers, and a great industry leader, A&R is a wonderful place to call home.”

“A&R Solar has shown me that companies still exist that put more value into the people of the company then the dollar that is made.”

The award was handed out at an event at T-Mobile Park. A&R has been a finalist for the award for several years.

The second place award is in the midsize business category. A&R currently has 67 employees in Washington and 16 in Oregon. The company was founded in 2007.
