The Best Places to Work in Idaho winners, as chosen by their own employees, have demonstrated exceptional performance in the areas of Compensation and Benefits, Employee Growth and Development, Work-Life Balance, Workplace Environment, and Company Management.

To be considered for an award, participating organizations must achieve a sufficient level of completed surveys.

Honorable Mention



Winners - 2008

These awards reflect exceptional performance in the areas of Compensation and Benefits, Employee Growth and Development, Work-Life Balance, Workplace Environment, and Company Management.

Based on the results of employee surveys, executed either online or on paper, POPULUS calculated an Index of Excellence for each of these five dimensions of employee satisfaction. Scores reflect the proportion of employees showing the highest level of satisfaction on the various aspects of their employment covered in that dimension.

To be considered for an award, participating companies had to have a specified level of employees complete the survey. By setting this threshold, POPULUS was confident that the opinions expressed represented the entire employee population and not a just small segment.

The awards reflect one of three achievements:

Small Employers (< 100 employees)

Southern Idaho Region

Northern Idaho Region

Eastern Idaho Region

Large Employers (100 and more employees)

Boise State University College of Idaho Idaho State University Lewis Clark State College University of Idaho Moscow Chamber of Commerce Meridian Chamber of Commerce Sun Valley/Ketchum Chamber of Commerce Nampa Chamber of Commerce Pocatello Chamber of Commerce
