EPB&B Awarded Top Workplace

We did it again.  This past week Elliott, Powell, Baden, and Baker was recognized by The Oregonian as one of the Top Workplaces in Oregon.  This is the seventh time in the past nine years that EPB&B has made the Top Workplaces list of small employers of one hundred employees or less. 

“I am proud that at EPB&B we have a culture of teamwork, trust, appreciation and growth,” says President Marc Baker.  “It is my belief that a positive workplace leads to superior customer service, and our growth in the past decade is confirmation of that.”

A big shout out to our team for making EPB&B such a positive place to work. 

What makes EPB&B a Top Workplace? The amazing people that work here, of course.


A Friend Of The Trees

What sets Elliott, Powell, Baden, and Baker apart from other businesses is the people.  Not only does the team at EPB&B have the  knowledge and expertise to help you with your insurance needs, they also take time away from the office to give back to the community, like Personal Lines Account Manager Olivia Astrue.  This past weekend Olivia spent the day volunteering at Hoyt Arboretum.

Founded in 1928 to conserve endangered species and educate the community, Hoyt arboretum encompasses 190 acres and 12 miles of hiking trails just outside of Portland. 

“We chose the Hoyt Arboretum because it was a place my grandma really liked,” Olivia explains. “Her birthday was Sept 6 so we wanted to do something to remember her. She passed from Alzheimer’s a few years ago and has a bench out at the Arboretum with her name on it that we like to visit when we’re missing her.”

With  only two full time employees, Hoyt Arboretum relies heavily on volunteers.  During COVID, people are out enjoying outdoor spaces like never before so volunteer help  is needed now more than ever. 

Thank you Olivia for spending the time giving back to the community.  We think you made Grandma very happy too.
