Posted by Andrea Hogan on 30th August 2017

Mars has been named the best large company to work at in Australia in the 2017 Great Place to Work ranking.

Taking out the category for companies with more than 1, 000 employees, Mars Australia was recognised for its employee perks which include massages, snacks, fitness centres, boot camps and pet friendly offices.

Mars Petcare General Manager, Barry O’Sullivan, said Mars is not new to the top 20 of Great Place to Work, but a top five ranking is a major milestone.

“Even more so when for the first time we have been rated against like-sized peers in the new Enterprise Employer category,” O’Sullivan said.

“We have never made our ambition to be one of the best workplaces in Australia a secret.”

Mars was not the only food company to make the top five list, Campbell Arnott’s came in fourth in the over 1, 000 employee category.
