The Oregonian Names U.S. Cellular A Winner Of The Oregon/Southwest Washington 2018 Top Workplaces Award

Medford, OR (Oct. 1, 2018)

U.S. Cellular has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by The Oregonian. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.


"Top Workplaces is more than just recognition," said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. "Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement."


"When U.S. Cellular earns an honor like this, it's because our associates take pride in their jobs and in making a difference at home, where it matters most," said Erryn Andersen, director of sales for U.S. Cellular in the northwest market. "We pride ourselves on making wireless personal, which means understanding our customers, what they need, and providing the reliability they expect on a national network."


"Becoming a Top Workplace isn't something organizations can buy," Claffey said. "It's an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It's a big deal."


U.S. Cellular has approximately 125 associates in Oregon and invested more than $25 million in the state in 2017 to improve its award-winning network. Associates also volunteered hundreds of hours with local Boys and Girls Clubs and a variety of other non-profits throughout the year.
