OAC Services, Inc. (OAC) is proud to announce that it was named #14 on ‘Washington’s Best Companies to Work For’ by the Seattle Business Magazine. In addition to our award winning culture, OAC was also recognized as an organization that sets the standard for executive leadership.

At OAC we love what we do, and seek out clients and community partners who feel the same about their work.

Developing our People – Building our Community, is a motto we take seriously. We invest in our staff. More than 82% of our team members are engaged in employee led committees and initiatives. Our employees are central to our culture and leadership.

“We are excited to be recognized as one of the ‘100 Best Companies to Work For’ by Seattle Business Magazine,” stated OAC’s Managing Principal, Shawn Mahoney. ”Essentially, our people are our “product” and OAC is a team of passionate, smart, integrity-driven people that not only want to foster an amazing culture, but make a larger positive impact with our clients, our community and quite frankly, the world.”

To be considered as a top company to work for, thousands of applicants from across the state submitted a formal nomination, and confidential employee surveys were conducted by an independent research firm. Then the detailed employee survey responses were graded and ranked. Ranking was determined by the employee responses to ten different categories, including key areas such as corporate culture, executive leadership, workplace environment, etc. For judging purposes, nominated companies were separated into five classifications: small firms (40 or fewer employees), midsize (41 to 100 employees), large (more than 100 employees), and firms headquartered outside Washington.

OAC and all the other winning companies of the Seattle Business Magazine ‘100 Best Companies to Work For’ were recognized at the magazine’s annual gala event held June 23rd at the Washington State Convention Center, in Seattle. The Seattle Business magazine hosted more than 1,300 attendees at this year’s gala. Notable companies recognized alongside OAC include Zillow, GoDaddy, Novo Nordisc, Andersen Construction, Prime Electric, and more.
