General Mills ranked Asia’s 12th best workplace

DUBAI, August 2, 2021

General Mills Middle East has been recognised among Asia’s Best Workplaces 2021 across Asia, Middle East and Africa (AMEA) by the prestigious international consulting firm Great Place to Work (GPTW) Institute. 
General Mills improved its ranking this year by 10 places to the 12th position among a total of 30 multinational companies. 
This recognition is based on confidential survey data assessing employee experiences of trust, innovation, company values and leadership. General Mills was also evaluated on how well it is creating a For AllTM workplace experience, inclusive of all employees no matter who they are or what they do. 
The award recognises General Mills’ continued efforts to build a culture of collaboration and commitment across AMEA markets even as the world witnessed disruptions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, considering several proactive measures that General Mills undertook to support its employees during the pandemic to ensure their safety and well-being. 
This year, Great Place to Work surveyed over 3.3 million employees from across 16 diverse countries and cultures in Asia and the Middle East to determine the Best Workplaces in Asia 2021.
Commenting on the recognition, Balki Radhakrishnan, Vice President and Managing Director – AMEA of General Mills said: “General Mills’ continued recognition as one of Asia’s Best Workplaces reflects the trust that our employees place in the company and its strong intent towards inclusion and diversity. As we continue ‘Making the Food the World Loves’, we remain deeply committed to the welfare of our employees.” 
He said this year was particularly relevant as Covid-19 brought physical and mental well-being front of mind for both employers and employees. 
Selvi Supuriamaniam, HR Head-Middle East and Africa said: “We are grateful to all our employees for helping us achieve this recognition. I believe that they have played a critical role in making General Mills what it is today. Employee welfare is a top priority for us and all our engagement programs are designed and executed, keeping this in mind. This year, the improved ranking is a reflection of the trust our employees have in the organisation and its ability to support them even at a critical time like this. The recognition is an acknowledgment of the company’s workplace programs and the key factors that contributed to being a great workplace.”   
Previously, many of General Mills markets in AMEA have also been individually recognised as a Great Place to Work as well. -- TradeArabia News Service
