Logos Bible Software was recently listed on the Puget Sound Business Journal 2010 list of Washington’s Best Workplaces.
The listing is based on employee satisfaction surveys and Logos is among the top 20 large businesses with 151 to 500 employees. Companies are nominated for the list by business journal readers and employees are then surveyed about the work environment.
According to the list, salaried employees at Logos make and average of $62,400 a year and non-salaried employees make an average of $30,800. The company pays 90 percent of health insurance premiums and offers a 401(K).
“It’s the employees who make it a great work place and we’re still looking for more great people,” said Logos founder and CEO Bob Pritchett.
Pritchett bought the triangular, seven-story building in April and is planning to move the company there in November. The company will occupy much of the building and is planning to create two retail spaces on the ground floor that will be rented out. Pritchett said he has received some interest from potential tenants, but nothing is firm yet.
As part of the renovations, the company has filed for a permit to build a $105,000 gym in the basement, complete with fitness equipment and showers. It is also planning an $87,000 renovation of the break room on the second floor.
