Known for its innovative culture and innovative products, W. L. Gore & Associates ranks among the world’s best companies to work for. Gore earned the number three spot on the Great Place to Work Institute’s list of Best Multinational Workplaces, released last week.
The ranking is the world’s largest annual study of workplace excellence and identifies the 25 best multinational companies in terms of workplace culture. For more than 50 years, Gore has cultivated a non-hierarchical corporate culture that fosters the innovative spirit of individuals and teams.
“We recognize the important role our culture plays in driving engagement, innovation and business success,” says CEO Terri Kelly, who joined Gore as an engineer more than 30 years ago. “We strive to create an environment where Associates not only enjoy coming to work, but where they have opportunities to make meaningful contributions that grow our enterprise and make the world a better place.”
Gore’s products protect explorers atop the world’s highest peaks, communicate data from Mars to Earth, remove harmful toxins from the air we breathe, treat life-threatening medical conditions and solve other complex problems.
Gore is among the more than 2,000 multinational corporations and subsidiaries that participated globally in the Great Place to Work® Institute’s 2015 list evaluation processes. This process generated top workplace lists in dozens of countries, and from those lists, the 25 World’s Best Multinational Workplaces were selected.
