On October 16, The Coca-Cola Company earned a
spot on LinkedIn's 2013 Global Most InDemand Employers list coming in at
number 10. This means that we've been recognized by prospective candidates as
one of the world’s most attractive employers.
As I heard the news, I felt great joy and pride as I know
from my own experiences as an employee based in Mexico that Coca-Cola is a
great place to work. The news regarding our inclusion on the InDemand list
validates that we are held in high regard around the world as a highly
desirable destination for the world’s talent and is a testament to the culture
and opportunities created by each and every one of us as ambassadors of this
great 127-year-old company. As members of the Coke family, we choose to
refresh the world, to inspire moments of optimism and happiness, and to create
value and make a difference in every interaction we have with our consumers,
customers and fellow associates every day. And it is this
dedication to our mission that drives our attractiveness as an employer.
Coke’s secret formula is and has always been its
people. We at Coca-Cola recognize that our journey to be the
world’s most in-demand company never ends, and we will use this latest
recognition as motivation to continue strengthening our employment brand every
