Syngenta Group has been recognized as one of the world’s top five leading employers — and the top agriculture employer — in the 2022 Science Careers Top Employers Survey. The company ranked fifth on the annual list of top employers in biotechnology, biopharmaceutical, pharmaceutical, and related industries, marking its 12th time in 13 years of recognition by the prestigious Science publication.

The annual survey identifies companies with the best reputations as employers, based on 21 characteristics, informed by surveying readers of Science and other survey invitees from representative industries. These characteristics include innovative leadership, treating employees with respect, and providing employees with autonomy.
An independent research firm conducts the survey and uses a mathematical process to determine the driving characteristics of a top employer and assigns a unique score to rate each company’s employer’s reputation. Survey participants specifically cited innovative leadership, social responsibility, and loyal employees among Syngenta Group’s strengths.
“Our scientists and researchers exude their passion for science and are dedicated to upholding our company’s mission to help farmers feed the world,” said Gusui Wu, Head of Global Seeds Research. “Syngenta’s continued investment in R&D furthers our collaborative innovation culture, ensuring scientists — and ultimately farmers — remain at the center of our efforts. We closely connect ongoing research initiatives with the pressing needs of farmers today, as well as widespread challenges faced around world due to climate change.”
This continued recognition by Science magazine is yet another example of Syngenta Group’s commitment to deliver world-class technology and innovation.
