Great Place to Work® Ranks Monsanto 10th Among Top 25 Latin American Multinational Workplaces
ST. LOUIS (June 1, 2018) – Monsanto Company has once again been named by Great Place to Work® to its 25 Top Multinational Workplaces in Latin America, earning a rank of No. 10 for 2018. This is the ninth consecutive year the St. Louis, Mo.-based agriculture company has been named to the annual list. Monsanto also appears on the GPTW list for the 100 Top Companies in Latin America.
Carlos Brito, Monsanto’s South America Human Resources Director, credits the continued recognition to the company’s inclusive and innovative work environment that promotes collaboration, professional development and work-life balance.
“The commitment of our employees and the pride of belonging to a motivating company is what moves us to fulfill the mission of helping farmers throughout Latin America,” said Brito. “Being on this list is an exceptional honor and a tribute to the culture our employees have built at Monsanto.”
Great Place to Work Institute, a global research, consulting and training firm, sponsors the annual Best Multinational Workplaces in Latin America listing. To qualify, multinational companies must have at least 1,000 employees around the world, of which 40 percent must reside outside the home country. Additionally, the company must have ranked on at least three other Best Workplaces lists in Latin America. Monsanto was recognized by GPTW in Brazil, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico and Paraguay.
The company’s on-going dedication to providing a supportive, inclusive and productive workplace that is encouraging, supportive and high performing has continuously led third party organizations such as Fortune Magazine, DiversityInc, Working Mother Magazine and the Human Rights Campaign to consistently recognize Monsanto as an employer of choice.
