Mars Associates Drive Our Success and High Rankings
We’re not surprised to land on so many worldwide lists, because our top assets are our brilliant and passionate Associates. We take great pride that our diverse, inclusive culture—driven by The Five Principles and exemplified by excellence—defines how we are one of the best companies to work for, the world over.
Great Place to Work®, the global authorities on high-trust, high-performance workplace cultures, conducts the largest annual global study on workplace excellence. This consists of an extensive survey and analysis of feedback from thousands of employees from hundreds of multinational companies. The results are driven by employees’ evaluations of management, pay, benefits, growth opportunities, culture and their job satisfaction. Mars is proud to be featured on this list and many others!
Culture, joy and a sense of purpose are some of the reasons Associates rank us as a top place to work, no matter the location.
“We are a global company with more than 125,000 Associates, and no matter the location, our people and culture are at our core,” said Eric Minvielle, Vice President, People and Organization at Mars. “Every day, Mars Associates are making a difference—for our business, the planet, communities and even pets—and we couldn’t be prouder of them.”
“People at Mars are so passionate and committed,” said Chase Ubernosky, Process Engineer at Mars Chocolate, North America. “The fact that Associates stay with the business for so long—many for 10 years or more—shows that we feel empowered and that there are incredible opportunities open to us. Mars is a terrific place to build a career.”
