08:00 EDT Monday, June 17, 2013

The Top 100 list features a mix of the best large, mid-sized and small companies.  Goodyear was ranked on the Top 25 list of large companies.

The achievement is based on results from a survey completed by 500 of Goodyear's Akron-area associates in late 2012, before their move to the company's new global headquarters building.

"Having top talent and top teams is critical to Goodyear's achievement of our corporate objectives," said Joseph B. Ruocco, senior vice president, Global Human Resources.  "These survey results will help us further improve our efforts to attract, develop, motivate and retain the best team of associates in the industry."

The questions posed to associates have been "tried and tested among millions of survey-takers since 2006," according to WorkplaceDynamics.  The survey results are benchmarked against more than 5,000 participating organizations with nearly 2 million employees who take the survey each year.

WorkplaceDynamics recognizes companies with the highest levels of organizational health, defined as strong execution, direction and connection with employees.  The company partners with more than 30 leading publishers across the U.S. to produce regional Top Workplaces lists. The northeast Ohio list was published by The Plain Dealer.

Goodyear is one of the world's largest tire companies.  It employs approximately 69,000 people and manufactures its products in 52 facilities in 22 countries around the world.  Its two Innovation Centers in Akron, Ohio and Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg strive to develop state-of-the-art products and services that set the technology and performance standard for the industry. For more information about Goodyear and its products, go to www.goodyear.com/corporate.
