At Nestlé, we drive diversity & inclusion through our impact on:
- Culture: by building an inclusive culture, leveraging on the differences of our employees when working together
- Innovation: by thinking about the needs of diverse consumers and customers in our products & services and being inclusive in their accessibility – whenever, wherever, however
- Society: by acting and engaging in an inclusive way with society and stakeholders in our diverse business environments across the entire value chain
Our culture of diversity and inclusion benefits both our people and our consumers.
A diverse workplace challenges and inspires the ways we think, innovate and create. At Nestlé, we constantly seek new and better ways to work together, building from our past success into the future.
We believe that the many different backgrounds, ways of thinking and cultural experiences of our people at every level of our business, makes for a richer workplace and gives us the insight and innovation to grow and continually delight our equally diverse consumers.
We are a people-inspired company; respect and trust are our greatest strengths. We place high value on the unique perspectives that people bring to our team which sharpens our performance and drives our business.
Respect for diversity means respect for other ways of thinking, other cultures, and all facets of society, and requires openness and inclusiveness in all our interactions both inside and outside our company.
Diversity and Inclusion are an integral part of the Nestlé culture. We aim to provide a workplace culture that generates equal opportunities for everyone, where people are treated with dignity and respect. We are expanding our efforts to strengthen this inclusive culture. It is helping us leverage the unique skills, knowledge and experiences of our diverse workforce.
Our global and local initiatives on diversity include:
- Development opportunities: mentoring and coaching programs
- A flexible and supportive work environment
- Role model events, round tables and network discussions
- Leadership development training and unconscious bias workshops
