WhiteWave Foods Named to Denver Post Top Places to Work
BROOMFIELD, Colo. -- April 23, 2013
WhiteWave Foods (NYSE: WWAV), the company that makes Silk®, Horizon Organic®,
International Delight®, and LAND O LAKES®*, has been named to “The Denver Post
Top Workplaces” – a list of the best places to work in the Denver metro area.
More than 1,000 local companies were invited to participate and WhiteWave was
ranked number 14 of the 58 mid-sized companies that applied for the Denver
Post’s 100 Best Places to Work for 2013.
“We’re honored that WhiteWave Foods was named to the Top Workplaces list,
calling our company out as one of the best places to work in the area,” said
Blaine McPeak, President of WhiteWave Foods. “The best part about being named
to this list is the fact that the judges were our employees. At WhiteWave, we
believe each of our employees can make a difference in our future, and we
value our diverse group of smart, passionate, hard-working people.”
The evaluation for the Top Workplaces program is based upon feedback from an
employee survey that Colorado-based employees of WhiteWave Foods recently
completed. The survey asked employees questions about engagement,
organizational health and satisfaction.
WhiteWave Foods is committed to creating a healthy culture for its employees.
In addition to competitive salaries and comprehensive benefits, employees
receive reimbursements for health clubs and alternative transportation
methods, and have access to free on-site yoga and Pilates classes, amongst
other company benefits.
“People want to work here because we’re creating a different kind of food
company, one that combines the spirit and principles of small food with the
scale and resources of big food,” said McPeak. “Many talented people choose a
career at WhiteWave Foods over other opportunities because they are driven to
change how the world eats for the better.”
