In an announcement this week, The Great Place to Work Institute named Golden Valley's General Mills as one of the World's Best Multinational Workplaces.
In total, 25 companies made the list and General Mills came in 17th. Great Place to Work CEO Susan Lucas-Conwell said that this is the second time the institute has recognized multinational workplaces.
We produce best companies lists in more than 45 countries on six continents and regional lists for Europe and Latin America," Lucas-Conwell said in a letter on the institutes's website. "The 25 companies on the 2012 World’s Best Multinational Workplaces list set a high standard for us all. Their outstanding achievement builds a better society by creating great workplaces."
"There are many factors that contribute to winning a “Great Place to Work” award but, without question, the men and women of General Mills are what make this company a great place to work," Mike Davis, senior vice president of global human resources at General Mills, said in a company blog post. "It is exciting to win this award, and to have it be a direct result of gaining Great Place to Work recognition in five separate countries."
