Mars Ireland is celebrating today after they were one of a number of Mars Europe sites who together succeeded in scooping the coveted title of Best Multinational Workplace in Europe at the annual Great Places to Work (GPTW) 2016 awards ceremony held in the RDS in Dublin last night.
This latest accolade means double celebrations for Mars Ireland, who earlier this year were recognised as second Best Medium Workplace in Ireland 2016. Mars has also been named by Fortune as one of the Top 100 Best Companies to Work For and has collected several other Great Place to Work awards around the world.
With over 18,400 Associates across Europe and some of the best-loved brands in the world, Mars Europe beat off stiff competition from over 2,250 companies who took the GPTW survey, across 19 countries.
General Manager of Mars Ireland, John Pickering said, "For me, it’s the Mars culture that really makes Mars a great place to work – it’s all about inclusivity, warmth, high energy and dedication. Mars gives us the opportunity to continue to learn and be an entrepreneur."
He added, "All of this drives us to strive for the highest standards and to continue to push the boundaries of success for the business. Having our efforts recognised and knowing that we are now the Best Place to Work in Europe is something we can all be exceptionally proud of."
