Since 1991, the Top Employers Institute has recognized Top Employers
around the world using proprietary methodology to maintain certification
objectivity, independence and selectivity. Crucial to the Top Employers
Certification is the completion of a stringent research process, and
meeting the required standard in order to achieve Certification. To
further reinforce the validity of the process, all answers were
independently audited, meaning this research has verified Dow’s
outstanding employee conditions and earned them a coveted spot among a
choice group of certified Top Employers.
