Share

Mundipharma is delighted to announce that Great Place to Work® - the global authority on workplace culture – has named it as one of Europe’s Best Workplaces™.

Mundipharma is ranked 12th out of 25 organisations in the Multi-National Company category. Great Place to Work® have recognised a total of 125 organisations across four categories in its newly published Europe’s Best Workplaces™ 2020 list.

Great Place to Work analyzed survey results representing 3,000 organisations and 1.5 million employees across Europe. The survey measured trust and engagement of employees using a series of statements designed to evaluate experience of organizational culture.

This European achievement was made possible after Great Place to Work® presented a number of National ‘Best Workplaces™ awards to Mundipharma companies earlier this year, including Spain, Netherlands, Portugal and Napp.

These European awards follow similar success from across the global Mundipharma network including across the Asia Region. So far this year, Hong Kong, China, Myanmar and Vietnam have all received ‘Best Company’ recognitions from prestigious national awarding bodies.

Speaking about the results, Mundipharma’s Global CEO, Marc Princen, said “Awards like these are testament to our focus on building an inclusive learning culture at Mundipharma where every employee feels appreciated. We believe that people are our most valued asset and if individuals feel accountable, and have the power to make a difference, they can not only deliver for the business but more importantly for the patients we serve.”

The EU list publication has come during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has placed unprecedented pressures upon businesses and employees globally. Organizations on the list are being celebrated for leading the way amid the pandemic, demonstrating care for their employees, their customers and their communities during difficult and exceptional times.
