We're open and inclusive. It's a simple concept. Being open and inclusive is critical to creating a delicious work experience for our employees and business partners. And it's the foundation of our strategy to build a high-performing culture.
As a global business, reflecting the face of our consumers in our employees – and especially in our leaders – also is critical to our success. Different perspectives help us see first-hand how we can better meet consumer needs with innovative and delicious foods.
It's how we do business
Open and inclusive is woven into how we do business every day – from training and development to accountability in leadership objectives:
- We require diversity and inclusion training for every employee at key career stages to sustain a culture that welcomes and values individual differences.
- We develop strategic relationships with external organizations to connect with a broad range of consumers and attract diverse talent to bring a wider spectrum of perspectives to our business.
- We link diversity and inclusion to executive incentive compensation to increase our leaders' accountability.
We're committed to supplier diversity
We look beyond our four walls too, to work effectively with suppliers that reflect the makeup of the communities where we live and work. That's why we've had a strong supplier diversity policy for more than 25 years. To help advance our supplier diversity efforts, we offer a supplier registration portal for certified minority- and women-owned vendors.
