Food company Mars Australia has been named as one of the best workplaces in Australia, ranking at #6 among businesses with 1,000 or more employees in the newly released Best Places to Work Study.
The Study, which recognises the 50 ‘best in class employers’ nationally, benchmarks businesses against a series of engagement indicators which include trust, pride in work and colleague camaraderie.
Mars Wrigley Confectionery General Manager, Andrew Loader, attributed the success to the company’s 2,000-strong workforce.
“This fantastic result is thanks to the 2,000 people who work across our confectionery, petcare and food segments and help create a workplace culture that is purpose-driven, collaborative, flexible and fun,” Mr Loader stated.
“Being involved in the Best Places to Work Study helps us listen to what our Associates say we’re doing really well, and where there are opportunities to do better.”
“We’re always striving to create an environment that allows people to learn and grow and gives them exciting and rewarding careers.”
Great Place to Work Australia Managing Director Zrinka Lovrencic added: “This is an exciting, transformative and competitive time for companies.”
“Companies which have made the 2018 study have risen to this challenge and exemplify workplace culture excellence.”
