An award-winning employer

An award-winning employer

Every other year Mars Austria, like many other Mars companies worldwide, takes part in the local  Great Place to Work workplace survey. The Great Place to Work Institute honours the best employers in 45 countries, based on a standardised survey.

Great Place to Work: second place in Austria

In 2017 Mars Austria made second place in its category (“Large companies with up to 500 employees”). The award applies to all three sites – the Breitenbrunn and Bruck factories and the Vienna office – as well as to the sales force throughout the country. The last time Mars Austria participated, in 2015, the company was ranked fourth. Management and Associates are proud of the achievement.

The coveted award is based on a comprehensive, anonymous survey of participating companies’ staff about their work situation and the working climate. Also rated are the programmes and activities used by the HR department to develop the company culture.

Best employer in Europe

In 2016 Mars companies in more than 20 countries qualified for their respective Great Place to Work rankings. In the global ranking Mars, Incorporated climbed up eight places to No. 12.  At the European level, Mars won against 2,250 competitors the “Best Workplace in Europe 2016” award.
