Forbes Magazine has named Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC) among America’s Best Employers for 2019. The Company is ranked No. 219 for employers with 5,000 employees or more. The list of 500 honorees was announced by Forbes in partnership with Statista.com. This is the second consecutive year that Brunswick has been recognized.
Brunswick, which was founded nearly 175 years ago, is a manufacturer of marine engines, pleasure boats and fitness equipment.

Determined by an anonymous survey of over 50,000 employees at companies with at least 1,000 people (including their subsidiaries), the Forbes list of America's Best Employers identifies companies that employees like to work for and would recommend to others. Brunswick's inclusion on the list distinguishes it from its competitors and recognizes Brunswick employees' dedication to the company's success.
“Being the Best Employer and attracting, developing and retaining the most talented employees, is among our Company’s core strategies,” explained Brunswick Chief Executive Officer David M.
