Yes, there are couple of ways one could obtain residency through a business. The categories and descrtiption of procedure are well beyond the scope of this free, general immigration law forum. To examine your situation and the options you might have, as well as their feasibility, you'll need to schedule a consultation with a competent immigration lawyer in person or via telephone or Skype.

I agree with my colleague. Your employer may have several options to petition for your green card, but it is very fact specific. It is best to have a consultation with an attorney.
