NEWARK, Del. (October 26, 2017) – More than 10 million people from 6,600 companies participated in the survey process for the World’s Best Workplaces list, sharing their perspectives on their work environment. And for the sixth consecutive year, W. L. Gore & Associates is among just 25 companies to earn a spot on the list. The company ranks No. 15 in the world’s largest annual study of workplace excellence.
“Our inclusion on the list is especially meaningful considering that it is largely driven by Associate input,” said company CEO Terri Kelly. “We benefit from an environment of shared ownership at Gore, where all Associates are empowered to make a difference.
