The Great Place to Work® Institute has again named Monsanto as one of the Best Multinational Workplaces in Latin America, ranking number 13. Monsanto was recognized for the success of its operations in Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and Guatemala. Last year, Monsanto placed number 18 on the list.
Monsanto was selected for from a group of 2,094 qualifying multinational corporations. To be eligible to participate, multinationals must have been recognized in at least three national lists of Latin America in the past year; have at least 1,000 employees worldwide; and have at minimum of 40 percent of total employees working outside the country of origin (where the company is headquartered).
“Monsanto is honored to accept this award on behalf of all our leaders and employees in Monsanto Latin America,” the company said. “This prize is a symbol of the focus our leaders give to ensuring our employees are respected and valued. Together we all strive to create a positive and engaging workplace that reflects our mission and our desire to become better professionals and individuals each and every day. This recognition confirms we are on the right path.”
Companies on the Best Multinational Workplaces in Latin America stand out for creating a consistent, high-trust workplace culture across national borders.
“Monsanto’s business across Latin America has and will continue to grow at a very aggressive rate,” the company said. “This growth is powered by people—our ability to recruit new talent and retain and develop our current workforce is critical. This external recognition increases the brand awareness of Monsanto as an employer of choice in these important markets.”
So far during fiscal year 2014, Monsanto has been recognized on the Guatemala, Paraguay, Argentina, Greater China, Belgium, France, Netherlands, Central America, and Mexico “Best Companies to Work For” lists awarded by the Great Place to Work Institute. Monsanto was also named the top small employer (less than 250 employees) in Romania by Aon Hewitt and a Top 100 Employer in Canada by the Globe and Mail.
