Cargill recognized as one of the Achievers Most Engaged Workplaces™ in North America
Global HR software provider recognizes companies leading innovation in employee engagement and productivity
MINNEAPOLIS – March 19, 2015 – Cargill was recognized by Achievers as one of its Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ in North America for 2015. The global employee recognition software provider’s annual award recognizes top employers that display leadership and innovation in engaging their workplaces.
“Employee-focused companies like Cargill that put engagement, alignment, and recognition at the forefront of their workplace strategy are rising above the competition,” said Cheryl Kerrigan, vice president of Employee Success at Achievers. “A company can't sustain a 150-year history without a strong culture that's committed to innovation and high performance, and we’re pleased to recognize them on this year’s list.”
The Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ Awards’ panel of judges evaluated each applicant based on the Eight Elements of Employee Engagement™: Communication, Leadership, Culture, Rewards and Recognition, Professional and Personal Growth, Accountability and Performance, Vision and Values and Corporate Social Responsibility.
The panel of judges included various academic and thought leaders on employee engagement, and included representation from organizations such as the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), Human Capital Institute, and Human Resource Executive.
“The recognition from Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ is a great testament to the culture of engagement we have created at Cargill over our rich 150 year history,” said Emery Koenig, vice chairman and chief risk officer for Cargill. “For us, engagement is less about asking employees to take an engagement survey, and more about continually pushing ourselves to be leaders in engaging our workplace. From our widespread community efforts to our leadership development offerings to our unwavering commitment to our guiding principles and safety, we are engaging the hearts and minds of employees in many different ways so they are proud to work at Cargill and committed to helping us achieve our goals.”
Cargill was honored alongside other participants of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ at an awards gala on March 11, 2015.
