SC Johnson is One of the 2018 World’s Best Workplaces 

Company Honored by Great Place to Work® for the Sixth Time, Earns 18th Place Ranking 

RACINE, Wis., (October 15, 2018) – SC Johnson today announces it has been named as one of the 25 World’s Best Workplaces by the largest global annual study of workplace culture. Out of more than 7,000 eligible organizations, SC Johnson earned the 18th spot in the 2018 ranking by Great Place to Work®. It is the company’s sixth year on this prestigious list.

“I am proud of SC Johnson people around the world who contribute to making the company a great place to work,” said Fisk Johnson, Chairman and CEO of SC Johnson. “In each of the countries in which we operate, SC Johnson teams are characterized by a genuine camaraderie, a strong sense of purpose and a commitment to solving problems. We’re honored that SC Johnson has once again been named a World’s Best Workplace.”

Since 2011, Great Place to Work® has identified the top organizations that create great workplaces in multiple countries in which they operate through the publication of the World’s Best Workplaces list. To be considered, companies must appear on a minimum of five national best workplaces lists, have a minimum of 5,000 employees worldwide, and 40 percent of their workforce must be based outside of the country in which they are headquartered.

The results of those national lists, in addition to extra points awarded for the number of countries and regions an organization surveyed employees in, and the percentage of the company’s global workforce represented by those surveys, are combined to create a top 25 ranking of elite, multinational workplaces. More than 7,000 organizations participated in this year’s survey process, representing the voices of 12 million employees worldwide. 

“Congratulations to the World’s Best workplaces,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “It is a big challenge to build a high-trust culture that is great for employees in many countries across the globe. These organizations have bold leaders who have risen to the challenge – they are the vanguard showing millions of organizations worldwide that is possible and desirable to create a great place to work for all.”
