Whirlpool in the Forbes’ 2021 list of the “World’s Best Employers”


Whirlpool Corporation has been named in the Forbes’ 2021 list of the “World’s Best Employers.” The list includes 750 companies worldwide and acknowledges each company’s dedication to make every individual feel at home within the four walls of the business. To create its annual list, Forbes partnered with Statista Inc., a provider of market and consumer data, to survey more than 150,000 employees across different organizations in 58 countries. The survey considers every aspect of employees’ experience including working conditions, salary, potential for growth, and diversity.

«At Whirlpool – commented Carey Martin, chief human resources officer for Whirlpool Corporation – we are immensely proud of our 78,000 employees who have gone above and beyond to support colleagues, consumers and communities while adjusting to the challenges of the past 18 months. We are honored that Forbes has named Whirlpool Corporation to its World’s Best Employers list in 2021, and we will remain relentlessly committed to nurturing the well-being of our workforce to bring out the best and brightest ideas.»

Whirlpool has eight Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) for underrepresented groups in North America, two in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, six in Latin America and one in Asia. The formation of those groups reaches back as far as 1998, with the office for Diversity & Inclusion created a few years later in 2001. The company has also launched several important initiatives to support employee education and advancement, including professional development training and its annual Global Inclusion Week.
