Monsanto Ranked among Best Places to Work in France
SAINT PRIEST, France --(Business Wire)--
Monsanto SAS (News - Alert) has been ranked the 15th best big company to work for in
France, according to the annual Great Place to Work® survey. This year,
60 companies have been recognized among the 166 that applied.
The Great Place to Work® Institute France survey rankings are
based on a combination of an assessment of employees' responses to a
survey about job satisfaction (2/3 of the score) and an independent
assessment of human resources management, company culture and well-being
at work (1/3 of the score). The big-company category applies to those
with more than 500 employees.
"This reward is a remarkable recognition of our 550 employees in
France," said Isabelle Zonca-Mérieux, Human Resources Lead for
Monsanto in France. "It's also a testament to the company's work
culture and focus on personal development."

recognition in Belgium and Romania. Monsanto Co. also recently was named
