Campbell Soup Company Receives the Gallup Great Workplace Award 2010

CAMDEN, N.J., Mar 15, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Campbell Soup Company (NYSE: CPB) today announced that it has
received the Gallup Great Workplace Award for 2010. This marks the
fourth consecutive year that Campbell has received the award.

The Gallup Great Workplace Award is based on the most rigorous workplace
research ever conducted. A panel of workplace experts evaluated the
award-winning organizations. Campbell is among the winners because its
results demonstrate one of the most productive and engaged workforces in
the world.

“The winners of this award have established a new global standard for
engaging people,” said Tom Rath, who leads Gallup’s Workplace and
Leadership Consulting practice. “When compared to the millions of
workgroups we have studied around the world, the awardees have worked
tirelessly to create an environment that values people. They go far
beyond trivial perks to ensure that each employee has an emotional
connection to the company’s mission and growth.”

Engagement is a key part of Campbell’s corporate strategy.
Accountability is stressed to all employees through a number of
practices that support engagement at all levels of the organization,
including recognition programs, business resource affinity networks and
opportunities for community involvement.

“Campbell’s philosophy is firmly rooted in the belief that we must first
win in the workplace to win in the marketplace. We recognize that an
engaged workforce directly correlates to creating shareowner value,”
said Nancy Reardon, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources and
Communications Officer. “Our strong commitment to engagement starts at
the top and extends throughout the company. We are very proud of this
award from Gallup, as it recognizes our continued progress in building
an extraordinary workplace and company. While Campbell is acknowledged
as a leader in employee engagement because of high engagement scores,
it’s the everyday actions that truly build an extraordinary workplace.”

Campbell will receive the award at the Gallup Summit on April 27-29,
2010. During the Summit, Campbell and other Great Workplace Award
winners will present the best practices they applied to their workplace
and the improved business results they achieved through building an
engaged workforce.

About the Gallup Great Workplace Award

The award’s weight and design equal the merit of the winners’
accomplishments. To create the award, Gallup designers collaborated with
R.S. Owens & Company, the company that produces many of the world’s most
prestigious awards, including the Academy Award. The award consists of
two components: The top design features 12 etched crystal planes,
layered to convey the kinetic energy of an engaged workforce. The
crystal sits atop a concave-shaped pedestal base composed of polished
silver-plated legs and a satin-finish front display. The combination of
these parts results in a piece that evokes the nature of engagement
