The World's Best Multinational Workplaces List is the first-ever ranking of the top 25 best workplaces that are determined through the lens of the company employees. Qualifying companies must have appeared on at least five national Great Place to Work lists, have at least 5,000 employees worldwide, and at least 40 percent (or 5,000 employees) of their global workforce must work outside of the company's home country.

"As a global company, we're striving to establish a unified culture that brings out the best in our employees. They are key to helping us deliver new and innovative medicines to customers and patients," said Jeff Frazier, corporate vice president, Human Resources, Novo Nordisk, Inc.
