PLAINSBORO, N.J., March 10, 2015 /3BL Media/ - Novo Nordisk has ranked 66 on the FORTUNE "100 Best Companies to Work For®" list, marking the seventh consecutive year Novo Nordisk has been recognized as a leading workplace. Novo Nordisk's selection underscores the passion of its employees to improve diabetes care and the lives of patients with chronic diseases.

Now in its 18th year, the list recognizes companies that demonstrate exceptional workplace cultures. The hundreds of companies that apply each year are evaluated on five criteria: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie by the creator of the list, Great Place to Work®.

"We strive to make an unmatched commitment to our employees, our families and our communities because driving change and improving treatment outcomes for people with diabetes and other chronic diseases begins with our people," said Jacqueline Scanlan, Corporate Vice President, Human Resources, Novo Nordisk. "It is a testament to this continuing commitment that we have been recognized as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For® seven years running."

Novo Nordisk's passion for its people begins with meeting the needs of its diverse team, and empowering employees to reach their goals both professionally and personally. Novo Nordisk's Total Rewards strategy includes exceptional compensation, benefits, development opportunities, work-life and wellness programs.

"A new type of 21st century company is emerging," said China Gorman, CEO of Great Place to Work®. "It is transforming how business is done both internally and externally. It understands that a high-trust work culture results in higher productivity, increased engagement and better financial performance. These factors ultimately lead to a competitive advantage and enable companies to quickly bounce back from challenging situations. The 100 Best Companies set the standard for businesses."

Great Place to Work® has found that employees working for great organizations trust their colleagues, have pride in what they do, and enjoy the people with whom they work.

Organizations that exhibit the qualities necessary to be named one of the Best Companies to Work For® see many benefits, including better financial performance, better employee retention, higher levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty, more innovative and creative thinking, higher productivity and enhanced public perception.

METHODOLOGY 
Fortune partners annually with Great Place to Work® to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America to identify the 100 Best Companies to Work For®. Two-thirds of a company's survey score is based on the results of the Trust Index © Employee Survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. This survey asks questions related to employees' attitudes about management's credibility, overall job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third is based on responses to the Culture Audit ©, which includes detailed questionnaires about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, methods of internal communication, training, recognition programs and diversity efforts.
