Melissa Healy Talks Job Creation in Portland, Beyond

In The News

In a thought leader roundtable for the Portland Business Journal’s ongoing “How Oregon Works” series, Melissa Healy and other local business leaders spoke to PBJ Publisher and President Candace Beeke about what employers can do to create quality jobs that will help them attract and retain talent.

In response to a question about how the push by employers for their employees to return to the office post-COVID may impact retention, Healy, a partner in Stoel Rives’ Labor & Employment group, said:

“We’re seeing a delicate balance of trying to preserve the intangible benefits that come from having everyone together but also ensure that valued employees who want the flexibility to work remotely stay happy.… If you can’t compete on salary, you have to figure out what else you can compete on and remind employees what sets you apart. Something doable in every workplace is to remind employees that you care about them.“
