For the second year in a row and the fourth time since 2018, global biotech leader CSL ranks among the best employers in America, according to Forbes and Statista.
“CSL shines as an employer that delivers a promising future and inclusive workplace for those seeking a rewarding career developing and delivering critical therapies for patients and public health,” said Elizabeth Walker, CSL’s Chief Human Resources Officer. “Our continued recognition from Forbes is proof positive of our growing reputation as a destination employer in the U.S.”
CSL also stood out among employers in the category of compensation and benefits, ranking among the top 20 alongside Canon U.S.A., Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Over the past year, CSL has been named to Forbes’ Global 2000 and Switzerland’s Best Employers lists.
The majority of CSL’s 32,000-employee strong global workforce lives and works in the United States. In addition to operating more than 300 plasma donation centers, CSL’s U.S. presence includes manufacturing sites in Kankakee, Illinois, and Holly Springs, North Carolina, an R&D hub in Pasadena, California, and CSL Behring’s operational headquarters in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. Through business units CSL Behring and CSL Seqirus, the company makes medicines for rare and serious diseases, as well as vaccines.
The Forbes rankings are based on responses from about 45,000 Americans working for businesses with more than 5,000 employees. Respondents were also asked to nominate companies other than their own. Forbes’ final list includes the 500 large employers that received the most recommendations.
