NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nissan is one of the fastest-growing automakers in America, and a recent study now shows that it is also one of the best places to work in America. Nissan ranked 42nd on a list of “America’s Best Employers” according to a survey published by Forbes.
“Nissan has been able to achieve the kind of rapid growth that we’ve enjoyed in the U.S. because of the hard work and dedication of our more than 22,000 team members,” said Scott Becker, senior vice president, Administration and Finance, Nissan North America. “While adding more than 9,000 U.S. jobs since mid-2011, Nissan is committed to creating a positive workplace with strong benefits for our employees. We are happy to see that the Forbes ‘America’s Best Employers’ study validates our efforts.”
In addition to its overall top 50 performance, Nissan ranked second among car manufacturers in the study and was one of only two that finished in the top 100.
The top employers were chosen by Forbes based on an independent survey by Statista.com of 20,000 American employees working for large U.S. companies and institutions, and U.S. divisions of international firms. Respondents were asked anonymously through several online panels if they’d recommend their employer, or any other employers in their industry, to a potential employee.
The survey was conducted with employees of companies in all industry sectors employing more than 2,500 workers in the U.S. In total, more than 3,500 companies were represented in the study, with Forbes creating a list of the top 500 firms for their April 13, 2015 issue.
