Racine, Wis., September 7, 2010 – SC Johnson India has been named one of the Top 50 Companies to Work For in 2010, the first time it has made the prestigious list. The ranking resulted from a study conducted by the Great Place to Work® Institute India and The Economic Times, a leading Indian newspaper.
For SC Johnson India, the recognition is significant since it comes just five years after the SC Johnson subsidiary company began operations in India.
“The Great Place to Work designation is great news for SC Johnson India,” said Steven Stanbrook, Chief Operating Officer – International Markets. “It reflects the organization’s commitment to build a strong workplace with fully engaged team members contributing to our success in this important market. The entire SC Johnson India team deserves congratulations for their efforts.”
This year, 427 companies participated in the study, which is the largest such survey based in India. Companies were evaluated based on workplace environment, company policies and practices and employee surveys.
“We are very pleased to be recognized on this highly-regarded list in such an intensely competitive environment,” said Rajiv Bhat, Group General Manager – South Asia. “Being named one of the best places to work among all the companies that participated is a real tribute to our people, our management processes and the SC Johnson culture which is based upon trust and respect for the individual.”
SCJ India was recognized for its strong employee engagement, especially related to management trust and workplace pride. SCJ India’s profit sharing program was also called out as a driver of employee satisfaction.
