Andersen Corporation, manufacturer of America's most loved brand of windows and doors*, has been named a Forbes World’s Best Employer 2022. Honorees were chosen based on an independent survey by Statista Inc., which polled 150,000 full and part-time workers across 57 countries. Respondents were asked questions relating to their employment experience including working conditions, salary, potential for growth, diversity and how likely they would be to recommend their employer to a family member or friend.
Andersen ranked 15th in the "Engineering and Manufacturing" category and 158 out of 800 companies overall.
With over 13,000 employees and more than 30 manufacturing, distribution and retail locations, Andersen and its portfolio of brands work to deliver an exceptional experience to employees, customers and the broader community.
“Our employees are our greatest asset and the foundation of our success as a company. Investing in our employees as individuals furthers our commitment to inspiring every employee to achieve their full potential, making Andersen a globally recognized employer of choice and a special place to work,” said Chris Galvin, president and chief operating officer at Andersen. “The innovative learning, development and advancement programs we offer at Andersen not only support our employees to meet the needs of their job today but develop employees to have fulfilling long-term careers at Andersen.”
Examples of Andersen’s employee training programs include:
- Training centers designed for educating new employees on the manufacturing process, enabling them to build muscle memory and gain the skills they need to be successful before they work on the plant floor.
- Dock-to-Driver program where talented warehouse team members can obtain technical training at an accredited truck driving school and transition their career to become an Andersen commercial driver.
- “English @ Work,” an on-site English course available to Andersen employees at no cost, with a focus on developing language competencies for work and life.
- Development programs focused on building awareness, internal capacity and skills, and strengthening the company’s commitment to an inclusive and diverse workplace.
