Monsanto Recognized as a Glassdoor 2018 Best Places to Work
Monsanto has received a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award which recognizes the company as a 2018 Best Places to Work. Of the 100 companies named to the list, Monsanto ranks No. 54.
This is the 10th year for The Employees’ Choice Awards program, which decides the Best Places to Work rankings based on input from employees who choose to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies via Glassdoor. The 2018 rankings are based on employee reviews between Nov. 1, 2016 through Oct. 22, 2017. This past June, Glassdoor named Monsanto Chairman and CEO Hugh Grant to its 2017 Highest Rated CEO List.
“Monsanto has been very deliberate in creating a work culture where our employees feel valued and that encourages them to take care of themselves by balancing work and career, taking advantage of professional development opportunities and receiving support from our business resource networks,” said Steve Mizell, executive vice president and chief human resources officer for Monsanto. “These are the same values many have positively echoed in their Glassdoor reviews of Monsanto.”
Glassdoor allows current and former employees to share insights and opinions about their work environment by posting reviews based on their overall satisfaction of their company and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, senior management and culture.
“We know today’s job seekers are more informed than ever about where they go to work, researching everything from company culture to career opportunities to pay philosophy and more,” said Robert Hohman, Glassdoor’s CEO and founder. “To help people find companies that stand out from the pack, the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards recognizes employers that are truly Best Places to Work because they’re determined by those who really know best – the employees.”
Other third party organizations, such as Fortune Magazine, Working Mother magazine, DiversityInc and the Human Rights Campaign, continue to recognize Monsanto as an employer of choice.
