Best Companies to Work For in 2015Tec Labs ranks in Oregon Top 100 2015

Dear Readers,

Last week was a particularly exciting week for our little family here at Tec Labs. We made Oregon's Top 100 Best Companies to Work For 2015, placing 19th overall (yes, we're still high-fiving each-other around the office this week)! We closed up shop and headed to Portland to celebrate with our fellow Top 100 businesses of the "Beaver" state. Humbled and grateful to receive this recognition, it gave us a chance to reflect on what truly matters to us here at Tec Labs…

This honor is more than just an award. To us, it represents who we are, what we stand for, and why we do what we do at Tec Laboratories. It all began years ago in 1961 when the trusted name in poison ivy was accidentally born. We don't do it for the recognition. We do it, because it's what we know. It's what the inventor of Tecnu®, Dr. Robert Smith (Doc, as he is lovingly referred to by the Tec family) and his sons (Steve, CEO and Vern, VP) believed in, and made a reality. Tec has always believed in taking care of the employees first, making sure they are given the proper tools, and are given the chance to flourish. This is clearly reflected in the company's employee retention rate, nearly half of the company roster has been with Tec for 10+ years.

At Tec Labs, we believe:

-          Culture is everything.

-          Sharing stories and jokes around the water cooler is a daily essential.

-          Gathering together every month to give our co-workers compliments is a must.

-          Working to our hearts' content is the only way.

-          Making the best products possible is the only option... second-rate will never do.

-          Finally, we believe, that singing 80's songs together on long bus rides really seals our bond.

You see, it's the bond we share that inspires an atmosphere of creativity, innovation, and a deep-rooted desire to make products that help make peoples' lives easier. Yes, the monthly bonuses, 401K matching, health benefits, profit sharing, and flexibility sweeten the deal, but it's our connection and appreciation for culture that keeps us coming back to work each and every day.

From our work family to yours, we encourage you to get to know each other outside of your work cells. Learn the names of each other's children, pets, and 3rd cousins twice removed. Complement one another, often. Bring a co-worker their favorite gum, just because. High-five when the next big order comes through. Smile more than you don't, and most importantly, appreciate each other.

You won't regret it, we promise.

The Tec Labs Family
