Community-Minded Enterprises Named a Top Three Finalist, on the “Best Places to Work in the Inland Northwest” List

Spokane, Wash.  —   For the third consecutive year, Community-Minded Enterprise (CME) has been named one of the Best Places to Work in the Inland Northwest. The Best Places to Work Inland Northwest list is created by the Journal of Business and Best Companies Group. Each year the Journal recognizes 35 businesses. “It is an honor to be recognized as an employer of choice,” said Lee Williams, CEO of Community-Minded Enterprises, “we are proud of the work we do, our company culture, and the team at CME.”

To determine the Best Places to Work Inland Northwest list, companies from across the region participated in a two-part survey process. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics.

The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final rankings.

Community-Minded Enterprises and the other list-making companies will be honored at a virtual awards ceremony on October 7. The rankings will be published in the October 8 issue of the Journal of Business.
