President and CEO Bill Austen credits the organization’s employees for the award. “Each and every one of our employees contribute to the success of our great company. This honor from Forbes is an indication of the strong sense of loyalty, dedication and pride our people have in Bemis and our customers, and I thank them,” Austen says.
Each year, Forbes partners with Statista, an online market research company, to anonymously survey U.S. employees regarding whether they would recommend their company to family and friends, as well as their opinion about other companies in their industry. The survey covers a variety of topics including working conditions, salary, potential for development and company image.
This year, Bemis celebrates 160 years in business. The organization’s core values of innovation, accountability, respect and ethics play a meaningful role in the success of its people and business. With a culture built on these elements, along with a focus on creating value and enabling customer success, Bemis is well-positioned for the future.
