Separately, Pernod Ricard jumped more than 150 spots, placing it in the sample’s top 15% in the 2020 ranking of France’s best employers produced by Capital magazine with Statista institute. Published for the sixth consecutive year, 20,000 employees were interviewed using an anonymous and independent survey.
