Kimberly-Clark Named Among World's 25 Best Multinational Workplaces For Second Consecutive Year

DALLAS, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Kimberly-Clark Corporation (NYSE: KMB) today announced it has been ranked No. 4 on the 2012 "World's 25 Best Multinational Workplaces" by the Great Place to Work Institute. The annual survey included more than 350 multinational companies from 45 countries, and Kimberly-Clark placed higher than any other consumer products company on the list.

"Being named among the world's 25 best multinational workplaces for the second consecutive year is a distinct honor for Kimberly-Clark, especially as we celebrate our 140-year anniversary," said Liz Gottung, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Kimberly-Clark. "Most importantly, this recognition is a testament to our employees around the world, whose outstanding contributions, dedication, and passion are what truly continue to make this a great place to work."

This latest recognition from the Great Place to Work Institute follows several international workplace awards received by Kimberly-Clark this year, including No. 1 Best Multinational Company in Latin America by the Great Places to Work Institute for the third time in a row. 

"Receiving the World's Best Multinational Workplaces award fills us with pride and underscores our commitment to unleashing the power of our people," said Sergio Nacach, President, Latin America. "It inspires and pushes us to continue to focus on our most important asset — our people."

The Great Place to Work Institute's Best Multinational Workplaces rankings are based on the results of an international survey of 2.5 million employees, which measures their views on five key workplace attributes including credibility, fairness, respect, pride and camaraderie.

Kimberly-Clark in particular was cited for its outstanding achievements in Bolivia, Brazil, Central America, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Peru and Venezuela.
