General Mills achieves Great Place to Work certification

General Mills Australia has been recognised as a Great Place to Work for the fifth consecutive year, highlighting its commitment to staff.

The Great Place to Work Trust Index enables employees to share quantitative and qualitative feedback about their organisation’s culture. General Mills Australia was recognised as a great place to work by 85 per cent of its employees, surpassing the 56 per cent average rating for Australian-based companies.

Shontel Turner, Director of Human Resources at General Mills, said they’re thrilled, but not surprised, to be recognised.

“This certification is a testament to our people. Our people enable us to create a workplace where every employee feels valued, supported, and empowered to thrive.

“At General Mills Australia we also pride ourselves on our ‘Work with Heart’ philosophy. Developed here in Australia, and then adopted globally, the Work with Heart initiative enables our team to thrive in both their personal and professional lives by encouraging our people to work 50 per cent of their time at home and 50 per cent of their time in the office. This flexibility enables our people to always give their best. This creates high performing teams, which directly correlates with strong business results.”

Over 90 per cent of General Mills staff recognised the company as a fair and equitable employer when it comes to gender, race and sexual orientation. While 95 per cent of staff recognised General Mills Australia as a welcoming and physically safe workplace.

Employees highlighted the business’ commitment to flexible work as a key factor influencing their score. The manufacturing team also saw an eight-point increase in satisfaction, achieving 81 per cent.

The Great Place to Work certification applies to both General Mills Australia sites, including the corporate office in Melbourne and Rooty Hill manufacturing in Sydney.
