“This company has demonstrated a unique investment in my personal development and engagement. Mars offers a wide range of training through its Mars University. At least once per month, someone from Mars University teaches a training course at my location. Not only that, but nobody gives me any grief for taking time off work to develop myself. Also, Mars spent over $1 million to host a Marketing Connections Week in Nashville. All the marketers in the organization were flown to Nashville for a week of training and fellowship. I’ve never seen anything like that before. Mars also takes employee engagement seriously, and it’s more than just doing well on an annual survey. Marketing Connections week is one great example of teambuilding and employee engagement. The company also offers a Mars Ambassador program where associates can talk 2-6 weeks off work to do company-sponsored community service projects around the world. I can go on and on, but these were the first two examples that came to mind,” says one millennial employee.
According to another millennial, “The benefits are a big part of what makes this company great. During the summer we can choose to work summer hours which allows for 1/2 day Friday’s. This is an example of the companies commitment to work/ life balance.”
