How We Work

Rewards and benefits - A world of possibilities

Repaying your commitment

There are all kinds of reasons why people decide they want to join Mars. Obviously, financial rewards are an enticing incentive. But look beyond our highly competitive salaries for a few seconds, and you’ll find there are plenty more fantastic benefits to discover.

Rewards to suit you

We’ve already mentioned the unique levels of freedom and autonomy you’ll enjoy here, as well as the excellent training, learning and development we can offer. The truth is, different things motivate different people. That’s why we’ve created Total Rewards - an outstanding benefits package devised to reflect your unique contribution and lifestyle needs.

There are less-expected perks such as bonuses and service-related awards. Indeed, Total Rewards is as much about the benefits you don’t see as the ones you do and here’s a quick rundown on a few of them.

Gym Facility

Mars Canada offers all associates the use of our on-site Wellness Coordinator and Gym facility, 24 hours, 7 days a week.


We’re committed to keeping every one of our associates happy and engaged with their career at Mars. But how do we make sure we go about it in the right way? Quite simple really – we use feedback gathered from our annual survey and ask associates to participate in local action planning. We also offer reward and recognition programs to highlight our associates' part in our success. Be it individual recognition for significant contributions, or Service Awards to recognize contributions to Mars over time, you can be sure your efforts won’t go unnoticed at Mars.

Flexible working

We really are all about freedom and flexibility – and not just when it comes to letting you make decisions and have a say in how we work. Our flexible working arrangements are genuine proof of this. They’ll help us help you achieve a work/life balance that suits you, wherever possible.
