As a company, Ford has earned quite a few accolades in recent months, including being named Fast Company‘s 2022 Most Innovative Companies in Design, among 3BL Media’s 2022 Best Corporate Citizens, and earning a spot on the 2022 JUST 100 list. FoMoCo has also proven to be a pretty good place to work, earning a 2022 Employees’ Choice Award from Glassdoor, while Ford of Mexico was also recently recognized as one of the best places for young professionals in FirstJob’s Employers for Youth study back in 2020. Now, Ford of Mexico has once again been recognized by that same organization for the very same reason.
FirstJob – which specializes in youth employability – just released the 2022 version of its Employers for Youth study, and Ford has once again made the proverbial cut in the study’s fourth year of existence in Mexico and 15 years across various geographical areas such as Latin America and Europe. This time around, Ford of Mexico was ranked as the ninth best company for young professionals to work for among 130 organizations that participated in the study.
The 202 Employers for Youth study polled more than 28,500 young professionals at or under the age of 35 to come up with these latest rankings, which aim to reveal which attributes are the main ones that not only attract but also retain the best young talent on the market.
Ford of Mexico works constantly to identify the talent that is required to add value to its business, and in 2021 alone, the automaker’s arm in that particular country hired around 500 new workers – two and a half times more than what it originally planned as 2022 began. The automaker has placed a big focus on hiring young and upcoming talent over the past couple of years, which has clearly paid off in more ways than one.
