TrueBlue lauded for accounting policies

Tacoma-based TrueBlue Inc. has won a national honor for its accounting practices.

The temporary labor company ranked at the top of the list of companies with the “most transparent and conservative accounting practices and most prudent management,” according to a new “Most Trustworthy Companies” list compiled for Forbes by Audit Integrity, an independent financial analytics company.

TrueBlue was one of a handful of companies on the list that have met the “most trustworthy” criteria consistently for the past five years or longer. Only 5 percent of publicly traded companies make the list.

TrueBlue was one of 19 companies of the 328 on the list to earn the highest score.
