Mattel: #69 on Fortune's 'Best Companies to Work For' List

Mattel Named to FORTUNE's 2011 "100 Best Companies to Work For" List for Fourth Consecutive Year

Mattel Moves up the List Nine Slots to Rank #69

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- January 20, 2011 -- FORTUNE announced today that Mattel, the world's largest toy company, has been ranked #69 on the 14th annual "100 Best Companies to Work For" list. This is the fourth consecutive year Mattel has been named to this prestigious list, moving up nine spots in 2011.

To pick the 100 Best Companies to Work For, FORTUNE partners with the Great Place to Work Institute to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America. Three hundred eleven companies participated in this year's survey. Two-thirds of a company's score is based on the results of the Institute's Trust Index survey, which is sent to a random sample of employees from each company. The survey asks questions related to their attitudes about management's credibility, job satisfaction, and camaraderie. The other third of the scoring is based on the company's responses to the Institute's Culture Audit, which includes detailed questions about pay and benefit programs and a series of open-ended questions about hiring practices, internal communications, training, recognition programs and diversity efforts.

The full list and related stories appear in the Feb. 7 issue of FORTUNE, available on newsstands on Monday, Jan. 24, and now at http://www.Fortune.com/BestCompanies.
