Michelin has been named by Forbes magazine No. 1 in the automotive industry and No. 5 overall among the best large employers in the U.S. in 2022.
According to Michelin, as a sustainable mobility company, this recognition highlights its commitment to providing motion for life for its 23,000 employees as well as its customers and communities where the company operates.
Developing the Workforce
With more than 23,000 employees in the US and Canada and 124,000 globally, Michelin says it is focused on the workforce of today and tomorrow. Michelin says it is working to attract high school and college students with hands-on learning experiences through its youth apprenticeship program, technical scholars program and other high-value internships and cooperative education opportunities.
Investing in People
Michelin says it also offers a comprehensive benefits package. Recognizing the importance of time off and job stability as employees grow their families, Michelin expanded its maternity leave benefit to offer full pay for 12 weeks, fertility care benefits and a Dependent Care FSA program with a company contribution. Employees enjoy vibrant careers with an emphasis on growth and development.
Making the List
In the annual listing from Forbes magazine, “America’s Best Large Employers” are ranked based on an independent survey from a sample of more than 60,000 U.S. employees working for companies with at least 1,000 people. Employees are given the opportunity to openly share anonymous feedback on a series of topics, including potential for development, willingness to recommend their employer to friends and family and company image. Michelin has been consistently included in this list and was ranked as the No. 1 Best Large Employer in 2018.
