Monsanto received a number of recognitions in 2013, and they had to do with some hard work by our people, and the kind of workplace Monsanto is.
The company was named one of the world’s Best Multinational Workplaces by Great Places to Work, named to the list of 25 companies for the second year in a row. Monsanto was ranked No. 12.
The company was also named a Great Place to Work in Paraguay and Argentina, and one of the 130 best companies to work for in Brazil. And in a survey of university students and recent graduates in South America, Monsanto was named the No. 6 “Dream Company 2013” to work for.
We were named a best place to work for LGBT equality by the Human Rights Commission (HRC), a best place to work in Information Technology (IT) by Computerworld, and one of the National Association for Female Executives (NAFE) Top 50 Companies for Executive Women for 2013.
And while it’s not a workplace recognition, this recognition does have to do with some hard work and effort by Monsanto people. The Gulf of Mexico Program gave Monsanto the Gulf Guardian Award for our efforts with the Mississippi River Watershed Partnership, which is aimed at reducing agricultural runoff.
