Cacique, LLC Named One Of The 2021 Best Workplaces In Manufacturing & Production By Fortune Magazine

LOS ANGELES — Cacique®, LLC, one of the country’s top authentic Mexican food brands, has ranked #15 in the U.S. as one of the Best Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production by Fortune magazine. The highly competitive ranking follows the company’s general certification as a Great Place to Work for the fourth year running this past spring, which unlocked the possibility for Cacique to be considered for related distinctions from Fortune. This is Cacique’s second time being named on the publication’s prestigious Manufacturing & Production list.

Fortune selected Cacique as one of the Best Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production by gathering and analyzing anonymous survey responses from more than 220,000 employees at Great Place to Work-Certified organizations. To determine its selections, the publication derives its company rankings from 60 employee experience questions within the Great Place to Work Trust Index™ survey. Here’s what employees had to say about working at Cacique in their most recent responses:

  • 88% say Cacique is a great place to work, compared to fifty-nine percent at a typical U.S.-based company
  • 91% say that when you join the company, you are made to feel welcome
  • 90% want to work at Cacique for a long time
  • 90% are proud to tell others they work at Cacique

“At Cacique, we see our employees as an extension of our family and being included on Fortune‘s highly competitive Best Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production list for a second-year running makes it clear our team members feel the same way,” said Gil de Cardenas, CEO at Cacique, LLC. “We strive to keep family at the core of everything we do – it’s one of the Four Pillars our company was built upon – and the positive feedback received during the award submission is proof that we are living our values every day.”

As part of the analysis Fortune bases its rankings upon, Great Place to Work utilizes the Trust Index survey to uncover consistencies in employees’ anonymous comments, and the word that came to the forefront was, in fact, “Family,” which – along with Quality, Integrity and Authenticity – is one of the Four Pillars that still guide the company today.

Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “In 2020 and beyond, these companies rewarded the hard and unrelenting work of their employees by creating a safe space for them to thrive in their careers and in their personal lives.”
