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 day.
