Mercury Marine has been named one of America’s Best 500 Employers for 2015 by Forbes Magazine, ranked No. 82 on the list announced by Forbes in partnership with statista.com.

“We are honored to be recognized on the Forbes list of America’s Best Employers,” Mercury Marine president John Pfeifer said in a statement. “It is a real tribute to our employees whose talent, dedication and commitment are the foundation for our success. The culture of our company is paramount to our success and it resonates globally throughout the entire company. This honor was made possible with the support of our community and the partnership we have with our customers and stakeholders.”

In 2014, Mercury celebrated its 75th anniversary by receiving the Wisconsin Manufacturer of the Year Award, as well as its fourth consecutive Green Masters Award. This year, the company has already launched four new engines and continues its steady pace of product introductions.

“The Mercury brand continues to grow in the global marketplace,” Pfeifer said. “Our success is directly correlated to hiring and retaining world-class employees and giving them the tools to manufacture and service industry-leading products and take pride in developing a product we truly believe in. Through our hiring process we continue to offer the opportunity for our employees to succeed by creating opportunities to grow and succeed within the company.”

More than 20,000 employees at companies with at least 2,500 people were surveyed for the America’s Best Employers List. The survey was conducted with global digital data collection partners that use innovative technology and proven sampling methodologies to facilitate a deep understanding of consumer opinions and behavior.

Participation in the survey was voluntary, and respondents were recruited from thousands of sources to maximize reach and representation.
