O-I Glass has been named to Forbes’ ‘America’s Best Large Employers 2021’ list, coming in at number 52 out of 500 employers on the 2021 list.

The Forbes’ top employers list was determined by an anonymous survey of 50,000 Americans who worked for businesses with at least 1,000 employees.

The respondents were asked to rate how likely they’d be to recommend their employers to others.

“We have a rich history of expertise with a strong heritage,“ says Kate Murawa, O-I Vice President of Talent, Learning and Culture. “Our employees tell us there is passion, dedication, teamwork and a sense of family at O-I.”

O-I Glass is based in Perrysburg, Ohio, with 25,000 employees worldwide in 20 countries.

As part of O-I’s commitment to a sustainable people-focused organization, the company signed its support to the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion Pledge; O-I also participated in the 2021 Corporate Equality Index and established their Global Executive Diversity & Inclusion Council.

Ms Murawa says responses to the company’s annual engagement survey guide its decisions.

“The safety and health of our employees is paramount,” she said. “It’s important for us to ensure we create and maintain an environment where people feel safe, included and engaged in their work.

“Our Employer Value Proposition ‘Make What Matters’ reflects that we are committed to our values, which means we are committed to our people. It guides all that we do to support a top-notch employee experience.”
