November 6, 2020

Bacardi in India gains ground with top 20 position and recognition for the second year in a row

Gurugram, India, November 6, 2020 – A fearless vision and people-first approach at Bacardi has made the family-owned company an enviable employer and the only spirits company certified among India’s Great Mid-size Workplaces 2020 by Great Place to Work®. This is the second year in a row that Bacardi in India, part of the world’s largest privately held spirits company, makes the list.

Bacardi prides itself on attracting bright and dynamic individuals that think of each other as family and regard the business as their own. Leadership at Bacardi is invested in inspiring, developing, and engaging its talent through innovative learning programs. A collaborative culture helps fuel business success for Bacardi in India. Today, the company has one of the largest international spirits portfolios in a country that is one of the world’s biggest markets for rum and whisky – key spirits categories for Bacardi.

Investing in our people is a priority at Bacardi, and we’re focused on shaping a work environment where our diverse talent feels accepted for who they are and motivated to bring their best to the table every day. Our initiatives create a culture where talent thrives and the mindset this facilitates within our teams has been instrumental to both the strong growth our brands have delivered in India and our recognition as a Great Place to Work®.”
