Dow named among the "PEOPLE Companies that Care®" for 3rd Consecutive Year
MIDLAND, Mich., Aug. 31, 2022 -- Dow (NYSE: DOW) has been named one of the 2022 PEOPLE Companies that Care by Great Place to Work® and PEOPLE, ranking 92 on the list of 100 companies, marking the third consecutive year the Company has earned a spot on this prestigious list.
The Companies that Care award is based on more than 1 million employee survey responses and data from companies representing more than 6.1 million U.S. employees and is highly competitive. Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, selected the list using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. Companies were only considered if they are a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization.
"Receiving this award for a third straight year is inspiring and humbling, as there is no better single measure of how we are treating our colleagues than direct feedback from them," said Jim Fitterling, Dow's chairman and CEO. "We can only be our best as a company when our people are at their absolute best. We remain committed to creating the best possible working environment for our team."
Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they create a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.
"Team Dow continues to passionately and purposefully care for each other and the world around us," said Karen S. Carter, Dow's chief Human Resources officer and chief Inclusion officer. "Care is not just a workplace standard, but it is a way of business and a way of life for us."
During the last year, Dow's caring culture allowed the Company to adapt and respond to change and uncertainty with increased employee engagement, faster decision making and enhanced innovation. Dow modernized its Total Rewards offerings, continued to address systemic racism through Dow ACTs, supported colleagues through the ongoing pandemic and further invested in the safety and sustainability of our communities.
"Caring isn't about being 'nice,'" says Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. "It's about understanding the real needs of your people, of your community and of the world—and showing up in ways that make a meaningful impact. These companies make that kind of caring for people, and even the environment, part of their daily fabric."
