After being ranked #18 in the Best Place to Work list in 2016, this year Mars Australia shot up to the coveted #1 position. 

At the official awards ceremony on August 29, Mars Australia was thrilled to be recognised as the number one place to work in Australia for 2017. The Great Place to Work results represent 60,956 Australian-based employees from 150 companies of all sizes. Mars was #1 in the 1,000+ employees category.

An impressive 90 percent of our Australian Associates described Mars in Australia as a Great Place to Work, and 93 percent said they want to work here for a long time and that Mars Australia is a friendly place to work.

Jim Brodie, Director-People & Organisation Mars Petcare Australia said, “It’s Mars Australia’s ambition to be a great place to work, so being recognised by the national body is news we’re delighted to share with our Associates. It allows us to reflect on the steps we’ve taken to achieve it and to celebrate the impact our Associates make every day in creating a working environment that we’re proud of. It also lets the outside world know what kind of company we are, which we believe helps to increase our ability to attract the best talent into the organisation”.

Mars Australia was recognised in comparison to other large businesses, in the following areas: Work Life Balance, Rewards, and Recognition and Empowerment, all attributes which are consistent across Mars globally.
