Beam Suntory named among "America's Best Mid-Size Employers" by Forbes


Chicago, Illinois, May 9, 2017 – Beam Suntory has been named one of “America’s Best Mid-Size Employers” by Forbes magazine. The world leader in bourbon was the only spirits industry company named to this list, and one of 19 companies in the Chicago area.


“People are our #1 priority at Beam Suntory, and this is meaningful recognition that our employees have the opportunity to unleash their spirit at work each and every day,” said Paula Erickson, Chief Human Resources Officer. “Beam Suntory was also recently named one of Germany’s ‘Best Places to Work,’ and these honors truly underscore how our people make our company such a great place to work.”


Next month, Beam Suntory will complete the relocation of its global corporate headquarters from Deerfield, IL to the historic Merchandise Mart in downtown Chicago.


Forbes’ list of “America’s Best Mid-Size Employers” is based on an independent, third-party survey of 30,000 Americans through online panels. Respondents, who work at companies with 1,000 to 5,000 U.S. employees, were asked whether they’d recommend their employer, or any other employers in the industry to someone looking for a job.
