Mattel Named One of the Best Places to Work in Los Angeles


Toy Company Ranks 9th Among Large Employers
Mattel, Inc., (NYSE: MAT) the world’s largest toymaker, today announced it has been named as one of 2008’s “Best Places to Work in Los Angeles,” ranking 9th among large-sized companies. The complete list will appear in next week’s issue of the Los Angeles Business Journal. Mattel moves up the list in 2008 since ranking 13th in 2007.

“This honor reflects Mattel’s strong commitment to providing a great work environment for its employees, because it is their creativity and talent that enables Mattel to design, develop and market fun and innovative toys,” said Alan Kaye, Senior Vice President of Human Resources. “We’re pleased that Mattel is recognized among the hundreds of companies considered.”

The 2008 “Best Places to Work” countywide awards program is designed to identify the best places of employment in Los Angeles County, benefiting the region’s economy, its workforce and businesses. The list is divided into three categories: small-sized companies (12-24 employees), medium-sized companies (25-249 employees) and large-sized companies (250 or more). More than 70 companies were recognized. Companies were selected based on employee responses to a survey of individual, workgroup and organization questions conducted by an independent research company on behalf of the Los Angeles Business Journal, Professionals in Human Resources Association (PIHRA), the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce and Best Companies Group.
