Forbes names Michelin ‘America’s Best Employer’ in Automotive Industry for 2017
The Michelin Group has been selected by Forbes magazine as one of “America’s Best Employers” for 2017. On this year’s list, the company is ranked first in the Automotive Industry and 34th overall out of 500 large employers. Michelin states that this recognition highlights its commitment to “building a culture that enables every employee to leverage their unique talents to serve its diverse customers across the United States, and around the globe.”
“At Michelin, we strive to put people first – our own employees and the people who use our products and services,” comments David Stafford, chief human resources officer, Michelin North America. “We’re guided by our company values and our purpose – to give people a better way forward. Our employees are deeply committed to that purpose, and I believe that’s why they’re so determined to make great tires and deliver great services that improve mobility for everyone.”
Working with online statistics provider Statista, Forbes asked more than 30,000 workers in the US employed by companies with more than 5,000 staff members to determine, on a scale of zero to ten, how likely they were to recommend their employer to someone else. They were also asked to share their feelings about the other employers in their industry. Survey participants were consulted anonymously through several online access panels. Their scores were analysed using the net promotor score theory and involved highly-selective criteria to determine the company’s eligibility and rank on the list of America’s Best Employers.
This year’s list includes 500 employers across 25 industries, ranging from corporate giants to universities and government agencies.
