RACINE, Wis., (May 5, 2017) – SC Johnson, maker of trusted brands like Glade®, Duck®, Mr Muscle®, Pledge®, Raid® and Autan® today announced SC Johnson Switzerland has been recognized as a 2017 Best Workplace by the Great Place to Work® Institute. The organization earned the No. 6 spot in the ranking. This is the first time the Rolle-based European headquarters has been recognized on the Institute’s annual Best Workplace list.
The team attributes its placement in the rankings partially due to significant gains in the Institute’s annual Trust Index assessment, which measures the level of trust within an organization.
“SC Johnson’s success is built by talented and committed people,” said Fisk Johnson, Chairman and CEO of SC Johnson. “We congratulate the team on receiving this honor for the first time and look forward to additional recognition in the future.”
The Switzerland team joins SC Johnson Venezuela, France, Germany, Poland, Greece, Mexico, Canada, Central America and the United Kingdom on the 2017 list of Best Workplaces.
The Best Workplaces list is the world’s largest annual study of workplace excellence. The ranking is determined by the results of an employee opinion survey and information provided about company culture, programs and policies.
In the United States, SC Johnson has been included 28 times in Working Mother magazine’s list of the “100 Best Companies for Working Mothers” and last year received a perfect score of 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index.
Also in 2016, SC Johnson was named one of the 25 World’s Best Multinational Workplaces by the Great Place to Work® Institute, earning the 20th spot in the ranking. It was the company’s fifth year to be included on the list.
