Millennials Love Their Jobs at Mars

06/29/2016

Mars has consistently been voted a great place to work by Associates of all generations. And our most recent recognition is certainly a very exciting one: our millennial Associates selected Mars as one of Fortune’s best places to work when it comes to pay, shared decision making and fair promotions. These are considered key elements by our Associates of all ages, but especially millennials.

As new generations continue to enter the workforce, it has become increasingly important for Mars to provide Associates with opportunities to pursue their personal and professional goals – and we look to other millennials for ways to do so. Here are three things our millennial Associates bring to Mars that make it a great place to work:

  1. Passion for giving back

    We know how important it is for millennials to give back, which is why we offer 15 hours paid time off for Associates to get out and volunteer through our Mars Volunteer Program. This past year alone, our Associates volunteered more than 94,600 hours through the Mars Volunteer Program and Mars Ambassador Program, truly making a difference in communities around the world.

  2. Fervor to take on challenges

    The non-traditional career path is on the rise, and Mars recognizes the value that varying perspectives bring to the table. We also recognize that millennials, and Associates of all generations, desire professional development opportunities and want to try new things. This is why a career at Mars is so exciting. From educational opportunities through Mars University, to engaging with unique projects across the company, to participating in the Graduate Leadership Development Program, Associates can experience different countries, jobs, brands and cultures all while staying a part of the Mars family.

  3. Desire to love what they do

Millennials want to be passionate about their work, and they want to work with people who feel the same way. Through our fun-loving brands, like M&Ms and Starburst, to our pet-friendly offices, Mars is an exciting community to be a part of. Our Associates stand together behind charitable campaigns, like Red Nose Day, and love coming to work every day.
