Forbes collaborated with market research firm Statista to compile the list of the World’s Best Employers. This is the fourth annual list compiled. Forbes surveyed 160,000 full-time and part-time workers from 58 countries working for business with multiple nations or regions from June to July. In total, 750 multinational corporations were chosen with headquarters in 45 different countries, according to Forbes.
In the survey, participants were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employer to friends/family and to rate their satisfaction with their employer’s COVID-19 response. Employers were scored on image, economic footprint, talent development, gender equality, and social responsibility.
As the 124th on the list of the World’s Best Employers, SICK has risen to the challenge with COVID response and on fostering a great place to work for all of our employees across .
“SICK took quick action regarding COVID in an effort to maximize the safety of our employees while still ensuring that our business could run to continue to support our employees through the global pandemic,” said Ken Rude, Director of Human Resources and OD at SICK USA.
In addition, SICK employees often cite a positive and enriched company culture and a generous benefits package as what makes SICK a top employer.
“At SICK we embrace what we call ‘The SICK Way.’ This has been an intentional and exceptional culture development at SICK,” Rude said. “As customers have told us, it is our people that make all the difference and ‘The SICK Way’ defines how each of us show up on a daily basis. We show up for one another, for our customers, and for the community.”

“We are very proud of making the list of the World’s Best Employers by Forbes. This is an affirmation that a well-developed company culture matters and it is what drives us forward,” Rude said.
