MISSISSAUGA, ON, November 7, 2016 – Bayer Inc. is excited to be recognized for the 10th time in a row as a Top 100 Employer in Canada. Bayer’s management team prides itself as having a stellar employee retention rate of some 96 per cent and employee satisfaction levels of 92 per cent and above.
“A decade on the list shows we are not a flavor of the month,” explains Lynda Newcomb of Bayer, Vice President, Human Resources. “It does show we are constantly innovating and have a genuine commitment of helping people develop to their potential.”
The secret to Bayer’s employment success is how each employee embraces the company’s values. It starts from a strong desire to make a positive difference in people’s lives first focusing on our customers.
“People join Bayer because they want to make a difference in the lives of others,” Newcomb says. “It could be by developing and providing products for people’s well-being or helping to find ways of feeding the world’s growing population.”
Bayer Inc. in Canada has over 1,500 employees across the country focused on three business divisions: Pharmaceutical (prescription drugs), Consumer Health (selfcare medications) and Crop Science (agriculture crop solutions). The company has over 11 offices/facilities across the country with the head office located in Mississauga, Ontario.
