Rutherford, CA, September 9, 2021 — Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine have honored Cakebread Cellars as one of the 2021 Best Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production™. This is Cakebread Cellars’ first time being named to this prestigious list, this year coming in at 17th place. Earning a spot means that Cakebread Cellars is one of the best companies to work for in the country.
The Best Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production award is based on analysis of survey responses from more than 220,000 current employees. In that survey, 95% of Cakebread Cellars’ employees said Cakebread Cellars is a great place to work. This number is 36% higher than the average U.S. company.
“We are humbled and proud of our talented team of employees for achieving this accolade,” explains Dennis Cakebread, Co-Owner and Chairman of the Board of Cakebread Cellars. “Our employees’ commitment to living the Cakebread Cellars’ values while working together is reflected through this accomplishment.”
The Best Workplaces in Manufacturing & Production list is highly competitive. Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, selected the list using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. Companies were only considered if they are a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization.
