Portland, OR September 20, 2015: Consolidated Supply Co. has been awarded a 2015 Top Workplaces honor by the Oregonian Media Group for the second year in a row.

Consolidated Supply Co. was also awarded the previous year with the 2014 Top Workplaces honor by the Oregonian Media Group.
Consolidated Supply Co. teams feel like extended family members and they have many team-building, morale boosting, and memorable experiences with multiple company celebrations. One employee from the Nampa, ID branch posted on the company Facebook page, “Great place to work. -A-team!” Company celebrations are planned by the Employee Satisfaction team, which the company’s owner and Chairman of the Board, Karolyn Neupert Gordon is an active participant. One of the many, company-wide events that is a big hit is Employee Appreciation Day in November where branches have a special meal, treats, gifts, raffles, and they receive personalized recognition. Branch locations also hold their own unique celebrations, but each year they each must hold a special event. In 2015, many branches held multi-branch events like the teams from Seattle, Pacific and Everett, WA attended a Mariners game on August 25, 2015.
