The maker of Snickers bars, Hubba Bubba gum and M&Ms has a philanthropy program that’s sweet for both employees and non-profit organizations. The Mars Ambassador Program sets up “MAP assignments” that link staffers’ professional skills with the needs of groups around the globe working to better society or the environment in ways that align with Mars’ business goals. For example, employees have joined forces with the Chicago Community Oral Health Forum, which works to address oral health disparities in Chicago, and the International Cocoa Initiative, a foundation that works to improve labor conditions in West Africa. One Mars employee in Denmark spoke highly of the company’s philanthropy: “we make a difference every day, even if it’s just a small difference.” Read the Great Place to Work review.
