CHICAGO, NOVEMBER 2 – Beam Suntory, a world leader in premium spirits, has been named among the Chicago Tribune’s “Top Workplaces.” Beam Suntory was the only food and beverage company to receive this award.
Earlier this year, the maker of Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, Yamazaki, Hornitos and Laphroaig was named to Forbes magazine’s list of “America’s Best Mid-Size Employers” for the third consecutive year, and one of Chicago’s “Coolest Offices” by Crain’s Chicago Business. “At Beam Suntory, our people are our winning competitive edge,” said Paula Erickson, Chief Human Resources Officer. “This award is a testament to the collaborative and inclusive culture we’ve built together, as a company of integrity, longstanding legacy, and world-renowned brands.”
The Top Workplaces list is determined by a third-party survey of employees, and considers the foundation of an employee’s job, including pay and benefits, as well as an organization’s core fundamentals, including values, mission, and culture.
Beam Suntory has been named among of Germany’s “Best Places to Work,” for three consecutive years, and among the “Best Places to Work” in Mexico for six consecutive years, including a No. 2 ranking in the most recent survey. More broadly, Beam Suntory’s parent company, Suntory Holdings, was recognized earlier this year on Fortune magazine’s list of the “World’s Most Admired Companies.”
In June 2017, Beam Suntory completed the relocation of its global headquarters to the historic Merchandise Mart in downtown Chicago.
