Washington County Receives Healthy Employer Award

2015 Award


Washington County has been recognized by the Portland Business Journal as one of the healthiest employers in Oregon. The Healthiest Employer Awards Program recognizes organizations that are committed to creating a healthy workplace and have demonstrated that commitment in various ways. Washington County works to emphasize and reinforce a culture of wellness and individual health awareness by providing access to free biometric screenings, online personal health assessments, health-related workshops and other strategies which support the overall health of employees and their families.

According to County Administrator Robert Davis, "Not only is our wellness program the right thing to do for the health and well-being of our employees, it is also a cost-effective program for our taxpayers.

"Washington County joins several other well-known award winners who have 1,500 or more employees including Delta Airlines, Hewlett Packard, Kaiser Permanente, Portland General Electric and Meredith Corporation.

Additionally, some announcements may require the completion of a supplemental questionnaire - which will be attached to the electronic employment application.  We suggest that you print a copy of the job announcement to help you prepare your answers for the Supplemental Questionnaire and to use as a reference in preparing for interviews.

We encourage you to become familiar with our application system by reviewing the Frequently Asked Question's (FAQ) located to the left on the navigation bar.
