Dow has earned a place on the Great Place to Work and Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list for the second consecutive year. Dow is the only materials science company to be recognized and one of only four manufacturing companies to make the list.
Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, selected the 100 Best Companies to Work For list using rigorous analytics and confidential employee survey responses from more than 4.5 million current U.S. employees. In that survey, 74% of Dow employees said it is a great place to work, which is 17% points higher than the average U.S. company.
“This incredible recognition, now for the second year in a row, underscores what we at Dow have always known — that our greatest single differentiator is our people,” said Jim Fitterling, Dow Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “From the way we collaborate to help create a better society, to how we stand up for one another, our customers and our communities — together, we strive every day to do better for each other.”
Great Place to Work evaluates companies based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience across race, gender, age, disability status or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.
“This recognition is a testament to the passion and dedication of Team Dow to create a workplace and a world that embraces our differences as our greatest strength,” said Karen S. Carter, Dow Chief Human Resources Officer and Chief Inclusion Officer. “We know our business succeeds when our employees thrive. Realizing our purpose and ambition as a company requires an inclusive culture that enables our people to contribute their greatest value.”
Dow has also been recognized by Great Place to Work with certification in several other countries around the world, including Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, India, Indonesia, Mexico, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa and Spain.
Additionally, Dow was named one of the “World’s Most Admired Companies” by Fortune in 2022, named a “2021 People Companies that Care” for the second consecutive year by Great Place to Work and People, and one of the “Best Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production” by Great Place to Work and Fortune in 2021.
