Syngenta named top agriculture employer in 2019 Science magazine survey

Syngenta has been recognized as one of the world’s leading biotech employers – and the top agriculture employer – in the 2019 Science Careers Top Employers Survey. The company ranked 10 out of 20 top employers in biotechnology, biopharmaceutical, pharmaceutical and related industries, marking the tenth year of recognition by the prestigious global survey.

The annual survey identifies companies with the best reputations as employers, based on 23 attributes. Treating employees with respect, being socially responsible and being an innovative leader in the industry were among the characteristics survey participants cited as Syngenta’s strengths. The results were informed by a sample of 7,658 people, including Science website visitors and survey invitees representative of the industry.

“One of Syngenta’s greatest strengths is our collaborative culture,” said Gusui Wu, head of Seeds Research at Syngenta. “Collaboration is essential for delivering on our commitment to accelerate innovation to bring growers the products and services they need. We are very proud of our dedicated scientists and researchers, who are committed to our ambition to help farmers safely, and sustainably, feed our planet.”

Syngenta’s dedication to help employees reach their full potential mirrors the company’s commitment to help crops reach their full potential. A robust R&D investment and pipeline enables researchers to develop seed technologies that benefit farmers, consumers and the environment. The company has biotechnology and seeds research operations globally, with centers of innovation in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA; and Beijing, China.
