Praxair has been recognised by Forbes magazine as one of the World’s Best Employers for 2018.
The Tier One company ranked first in the Specialised Chemicals category and placed in the Top 100 overall.
To create the list, Forbes retained Statista to analyse more than 430,000 recommendations from 2,000 companies worldwide. The recommendations were collected via a global poll as well as regional surveys. As part of the process, employees were asked to rate their own employer as well as to recommend other employers.
“Our global work force is our most valuable asset as they serve our customers and the communities in which we operate,” said David Strauss, Vice-President and Chief Human Resources Officer for Praxair. “This recognition is particularly meaningful as it is based upon feedback gathered from our employees.”
Praxair was recently named to Forbes’ America’s Best Employers for Women and America’s Best Employers lists.
Additionally, Praxair was named to the DiversityInc 2018 list of Noteworthy Companies for Diversity for the third consecutive year.
Reports this morning suggest further asset sales to the Messer Group and CVC Capital Partners consortium could be on the cards as Praxair and Linde attempt to edge closer to Federal Trade Commission (FTC) approval of the merger in the US.
The Messer Group appears to be positioning for its return to life as a truly global Tier One industrial gas player, with the news of a management reshuffle in light of its pending acquisition of Linde assets in the Americas region.
