Monsanto Canada Recognized as "Top 100 Canadian Employers" For Third Straight Year

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(Marketwire - Oct. 8, 2009) - Monsanto Canada has once again been selected as one of Canada's "Top 100 Employers" by Maclean's magazine in its annual survey of Canadian businesses. This is the third year in a row Monsanto has been highlighted in the Maclean's listing which is published in a special edition of the magazine that will appear on news stands today.

Canada's Top 100 Employers designation recognizes the Canadian employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. The Maclean's listing ranks employers based on a nation-wide survey, an extensive application process and analysis of compensation levels, work/life balance, training opportunities, workplace facilities and company benefits. Considered the most in-depth analysis of human resource trends in Canada's private and public sectors, the top businesses in 2009 were selected after a 12-month review and investigation of over 2,600 applicant companies.

"Being recognized as one of Canada's Top 100 Employers is a very big deal for Monsanto or any company," said Ryan Baldwin, President of Monsanto Canada's Seeds and Traits business. "We compete with many employers for talent from across the country and we have a strong focus on recruitment, retention and creating a great place to work so that we are able to remain competitive and continue to grow our business. It is terrific to get this type of recognition as it shows that we have a lot to offer potential applicants looking for an exciting and rewarding career with our company."
