In 2018, Reitmeier’s commitment to environmentally responsible practices was recognized by the Washington County Solid Waste & Recycling, and we were awarded the Green Business Award. Green Business Award winners don’t just recycle—they have instituted a wide range of environmentally sustainable practices such as preventing wasted food, reducing paper use, buying supplies in bulk, eliminating the use of paper towels, and providing customers and employees with reusable dishware instead of disposable items.
In 2019, Reitmeier was awarded a Top Workplaces 2019 honor by The Oregonian. We were ranked #5 out of 40 Small Companies. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by the publisher’s research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools.
In 2009, our dedication to sustainable work practices was recognized by Oregon Business Magazine, and we were celebrated as one of the state’s Best Green Companies to Work For. Sustainability inspires our mission of balance, and we are especially honored to have been recognized for our commitment to sustainable business practices. Thank you, Reitmeier team, for nominating us as one of Oregon’s Best Green Companies to Work For!
