General Mills Named One Of The “World’s Best Multinational Workplaces” By Great Place To Work

Stocks in this article: GIS

General Mills announced today that it was named to the World’s Best Multinational Workplaces list by the Great Place to Work ® Institute. The ranking results from the world’s largest annual study of workplace excellence and identifies the top 25 best multinational companies in terms of workplace culture. General Mills debuted this year at #17 on the second-annual list.

“As our international presence has grown significantly during the past several years, so too has our focus on globally developing the strong culture, leadership depth and quality workplace experience that we’ve built in the U.S. over decades,” said Mike Davis, senior vice president of Global Human Resources for General Mills.

“We’re proud to receive this honor from Great Place to Work as a reflection of our commitment to making General Mills a global employer of choice,” Davis said.

The World’s Best Multinational Workplaces list is based on data from 1,800 companies that have made Great Place to Work “best companies” country lists. To be eligible, companies must have appeared on at least five Great Place to Work country lists, have at least 5,000 employees worldwide and have at least 40 percent of their global workforce outside of the company’s homeland.

In 2012, General Mills made Great Place to Work lists in Canada, France, Greece, the U.K. and the U.S. The company has 39,000 employees worldwide, about half of whom live outside the U.S.

General Mills employees have access to various competitive benefits, resources and career opportunities. In particular, Great Place to Work cites the company’s internal, global social networking site, named Connect, as its “unique best people practice” in the company’s online profile.

“The companies listed on the second-annual World’s Best Multinational Workplaces List are creating workplaces dedicated to fostering trust, pride and camaraderie among their employees,” said Susan Lucas-Conwell, global CEO of Great Place to Work. “Their inclusion on this prestigious list demonstrates their commitment to continually improving the lives of their employees and setting innovative new standards for workplaces of the future.”
