General Mills awarded Asia's Best Workplaces 2020 by Great Place to Work
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 03 - 07 - 2020

General Mills Middle East — part of US-based Fortune 500, General Mills, Inc. — has been recognized among Asia's Best Workplaces 2020 across Asia, Middle East and Africa (AMEA) by the prestigious international consulting firm Great Place to Work (GPTW) Institute.
With a 150-year-old legacy, it is one of only three CPG/FMCG companies in the top 25 list.
The Great Place to Work Certification is the most definitive ‘Employer-of-Choice' recognition and is considered the ‘Gold Standard' in recognizing Great Workplace Cultures. The assessment process includes key factors that define and compare the culture of an organization with that of its competitors.
The award recognizes General Mills' culture of collaboration and commitment across AMEA that consistently scores highly on the GPTW focused areas of respect, camaraderie, credibility, pride and fairness.
Even during the ongoing pandemic, General Mills has ensured smooth transitioning to working from home for its employees and innovating to meet emerging consumer needs.
Commenting on the recognition, Balki Radhakrishnan, vice president and managing director – AMEA of General Mills said, "The recognition is a testimony to our culture of collaboration, reflected in several winning initiatives undertaken by the company.
"General Mills' purpose is 'Making Food the World Loves' and the commitment demonstrated by our co-workers to delight our consumers while building an inclusive equal opportunity workplace is something we are collectively proud of."
"At General Mills Middle East, we blend our heritage and experience of over 150 years, with the agility and vitality of a start-up. It is a blend of best global practices with local insights and strategies, developed by a diverse and committed team.
"Such balance is particularly important now, as employees and organizations wrestle with disruptive macro-economic challenges as an outcome of COVID-19," Radhakrishnan said.
Ms. Thiruselvi Supuriamaniam, HR head-Middle East and Africa said, "Exceptional employee engagement happens when an organization is conscious and purposeful about it. In a bid to make food the world loves, we pay utmost attention to the capabilities of our people and the strengths of our culture.
"Employees are empowered to tackle challenges and celebrated as they deliver results with speed and agility; supported by our employee-oriented engagement activities."
Previously, many of General Mills markets in AMEA have also been individually recognized as a Great Place to Work as well.
Michael C. Bush, Global CEO of Great Place to Work, said, "The COVID-19 pandemic is a challenge facing organizations across the globe, and puts a premium on being a high trust people-first culture. We honor General Mills for earning places on our ranking of Asia's Best Workplaces because they will outperform their competitors and we hope General Mills will inspire more companies to become a Great Place to Work For All." — AETOSWire
