make us stronger.
At Nestlé USA, our success is defined by our people – people who bring unique experiences, perspectives and insights to our business. As we continue to grow as an organization, we seek to build an open, inclusive environment where every voice is heard and every contribution is valued.
We believe that creating and maintaining a diverse workforce is a business imperative. Our goal is to attract and retain talented people that reflect the diversity of our consumers, and who can create products that are relevant to our consumers. This is not only good for our business, it’s also good for the communities in which we work and live. To that end, Nestlé USA actively promotes an atmosphere where differences are not only appreciated – they are valued.
Nestlé is proud to participate in MBA recruiting opportunities such as the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management Orientation Program (CGSM OP) and Nestlé’s own Leadership Symposium for Diverse Leaders of Tomorrow. In the past few years, we’ve worked to improve our reach to diverse candidates, and as a result, in 2011, our diversity hires had risen to 33% of total Nestlé USA hires.
Nestlé USA is also committed to fostering a growing number of affinity groups, offering social and networking outlets, ongoing career training and the opportunity to actively participate in community outreach. Groups such as the Nestlé Black Employees Association (NBEA), the Nestlé Hispanic Employees Association (NHEA), and the Nestlé Women’s Network (NWN), enable employees to share experiences, knowledge, and best practices, in an atmosphere of support and mentorship. What’s more, we actively meet with diverse employees to discuss ways we can make Nestlé USA an even better place to work.
The bottom line? At Nestlé USA, we recognize that people from diverse backgrounds are our most important asset and a key source of our competitive advantage. You’re encouraged to bring your unique talents and voice to our team.
