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.
As a sustainable mobility company, this recognition highlights Michelin’s commitment to providing motion for life for its 23,000 employees as well as its customers and communities where the Company operates.
“At Michelin, we are committed to supporting employees in reaching their full potential,” said Felicia Sanders, chief human resources officer for Michelin North America. “Our employees are the heart of this company. They are innovative and dedicated leaders delivering new ideas and building on successes to continue Michelin’s legacy as a mobility company embarking on new frontiers.”
Developing the workforce
With more than 23,000 employees in the United States and Canada, and 124,000 globally, Michelin is focused on the workforce of today and tomorrow. Michelin attracts 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 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.
“Creating a great place to work has been a long-standing principle for Michelin,” Sanders said. “It is central to our vision to give people everywhere motion for life. Michelin’s core value of Respect for People is about helping people achieve their best.”
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 is consistently included in this list and was ranked as the No. 1 Best Large Employer in 2018.
