AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Nov. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- Company earned a spot on the 2012 Detroit Free Press Top Workplaces list
- Sergio Marchionne awarded in the Top Workplace Standouts list for Leadership
- Annual list is the result of a workplace satisfaction survey administered by an independent research firm
Chrysler Group LLC has earned a spot on the Detroit Free Press' fifth annual list of the Top Workplaces in the state of Michigan. The Company was named among Top Workplaces in the "large employer" category, which consisted of companies with 500 or more employees.
Chrysler Group decided to participate in the survey process in June 2012 after nearly 300 employees nominated the Company. Once nominated, employers earn inclusion to the Top Workplaces list based on workplace satisfaction surveys completed by their employees. Chrysler Group ranked 21st on the list of large employers. Chrysler Group's Chairman and CEO, Sergio Marchionne, was top on the list of "Top Workplaces Standouts" for Leadership (Michigan employers that ranked high in meeting or exceeding employees' expectations - the criteria being "I have confidence in the leader of this company").
Workplace Dynamics designed and conducted the surveys for the Detroit Free Press and has conducted similar workplace satisfaction surveys identifying Top Workplaces in 29 other markets in the U.S., involving one out of every 100 U.S. workers. Any public or private company or organization with at least 50 employees in Michigan could participate in the Top Workplaces survey. This year 237 Michigan companies participated in the survey.
"We are honored and humbled to receive such a meaningful acknowledgment from our employees, validating that Chrysler Group is, indeed, an employer of choice," said Nancy A. Rae, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, Chrysler Group LLC. "Chrysler Group is committed to providing and sustaining a workplace environment where employees can thrive and achieve world class levels of performance, innovation and success."
Chrysler Group continues to receive major recognition for its leading workplace policies and practices. The Company has been named one of the "100 Best Companies" by Working Mother magazine 13 times, and has been recognized seven times by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation as one of the country's leading corporations supporting diversity and inclusion. In 2011 and 2012 the editors of Diversity Inc named Chrysler Group to the magazine's list of "Top 50 Companies for Diversity."
