Company Honored for the Fifth Time with 20th Place Ranking
RACINE, Wis., Nov. 14, 2016 /CNW/ -- SC Johnson, maker of trusted consumer brands like Glade®, OFF!® Scrubbing Bubbles® and Ziploc®, today announced that it was named as one of the 25 World's Best Multinational Workplaces by the Great Place to Work® Institute, the world's largest annual study of workplace excellence. SC Johnson earned the 20th spot in the ranking. It is the company's fifth year on this list.
"The single most important part of SC Johnson's success is the talented and committed people of this company. It is an important part of who we are to strive to create a great place to work in which people can be inspired and thrive," said Fisk Johnson, Chairman and CEO of SC Johnson. "To work hard to create a workplace of respect, integrity and inclusion. And to provide people with the resources and tools necessary to further careers. We are thrilled to be named a Best Multinational Workplace."
Since 2011, Great Place to Work® has identified the top organizations that create great workplaces in multiple countries in which they operate through the publication of the World's Best Multinational Workplaces list. To be considered eligible, companies must appear on a minimum of five national best workplaces lists, have a minimum of 5,000 employees worldwide, and 40 percent of their workforce must be based outside of the country in which they are headquartered.
The results of those national lists, in addition to extra points awarded for the number of countries an organization surveyed employees in, and the percentage of the company's global workforce represented by those surveys, are combined to create a top 25 ranking.
"These organizations are well known because their brands appear around the globe. But behind these successful brands are high-trust workplaces where the vast majority of employees feel valued, well treated and that their work makes a difference," said Kim Peters, Executive Vice President of Great Place to Work®. "Congratulations to these globally great organizations!"
