Greif Named to Newsweek’s List of the Most Loved Workplaces for 2021

Greif Ranked as 59 Among 100 U.S. Companies Recognized for Colleague Sentiment and Satisfaction

DELAWARE, Ohio, October 22, 2021 — Greif, Inc. (NYSE: GEF, GEF.B), a global leader in industrial packaging products and services, announced today that it is featured in Newsweek’s Most Loved Workplaces list for 2021, ranking among the top 100 companies as part of a collaboration with the Best Practice Institute (BPI), a development and research company.

“We are honored to be recognized by Newsweek with this prestigious distinction,” said Pete Watson, Greif’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “At Greif, we believe motivated and engaged colleagues are the foundation to our success by providing value to both our customers and shareholders. We are delighted to be considered among the best workplaces in the country.”

Most Loved Workplace results were determined after surveying more than 800,000 employees from businesses with workforces varying in size from 50 to more than 10,000. The list pays tribute to companies that put respect, care and appreciation for their employees at the forefront of their business model and, in turn, have earned the loyalty and respect of those who work for them. 

“Through a one team approach predicated upon colleague engagement, recognition and development, we foster an environment where colleagues can learn, contribute, succeed and perform at their best,” said Bala Sathyanarayanan, Greif’s Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer. “I am humbled by their feedback and commitment to our business.”
