Syngenta Group has been recognized as one of the world’s top five leading employers – and the top agriculture employer – in the 2022 Science Careers Top Employers Survey. The company ranked fifth on the annual list of top employers in biotechnology, biopharmaceutical, pharmaceutical and related industries, marking its 12th time in 13 years of recognition by the prestigious Science publication.

The annual survey identifies companies with the best reputations as employers, based on 21 characteristics, informed by surveying readers of Science and other survey invitees from representative industries. These characteristics include innovative leadership, treating employees with respect and providing employees with autonomy. An independent research firm conducts the survey and uses a mathematical process to determine the driving characteristics of a top employer and to assign a unique score to rate each company’s employer reputation. Survey participants specifically cited innovative leadership, social responsibility and loyal employees among Syngenta Group’s strengths.

“Our scientists and researchers exude their passion for science and are dedicated to upholding our company’s mission to help farmers feed the world,” said Gusui Wu, Head of Global Seeds Research. “Syngenta’s continued investment in R&D furthers our collaborative innovation culture, ensuring scientists – and ultimately farmers – remain at the center of our efforts. We closely connect ongoing research initiatives with the pressing needs of farmers today, as well as widespread challenges faced around world due to climate change.”

This continued recognition by Science magazine is yet another example of Syngenta Group’s commitment to deliver world-class technology and innovation.

“As a leader in innovation, we encourage our scientists, R&D teams and other talented contributors to creatively solve challenges together, welcoming new ideas and non-traditional, outside-the-box thinking,” said Camilla Corsi, Head of Global Crop Protection Research. “We continue to explore potential partnerships with institutes, universities and NGOs worldwide and invest in new technologies to benefit farmers now and in the future.”

Syngenta Group works with farmers across the globe, large and small, to provide society with better food, feed, fiber and fuel, while helping conserve resources and protecting the environment. Innovation plays an increasingly important role in providing solutions for farmers to deal with extreme weather impacting their crops. Regenerative agriculture has recently been at the heart of addressing this issue, blending sustainable innovation with farming tradition.

“Syngenta Group remains focused on accelerating innovation to benefit farmers and developing bold solutions to shape the future of agriculture. We continue to combine existing and new technology, digital innovation and data science to help farmers maximize yield and productivity,” said James Duan, Chief Strategy Officer for Syngenta Group China. “Our scientists and researchers are motivated to build best-in-class products and technology, supporting farmers in their goal to safely and sustainably feed the world.”
