Diversity & Inclusion
We are continually refining our people processes such as hiring, onboarding and development to ensure a level playing field for everyone to thrive. We have a formalized diversity & inclusion structure with executive sponsorship, strong governance processes and clear goals and milestones to measure progress and hold ourselves accountable. We have set employee representation goals to help ensure our organization increasingly reflects the consumers and communities we serve. In addition, thousands of our employees participate in our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), bringing together employees and passionate supporters who represent the unique characteristics, experiences, and perspectives of our diverse teams. The ERGs focus on four pillars – culture, company, career and community – to build programming for members and drive awareness and education across the broader KDP organization.
Employee Health & Safety
Ensuring the health, safety and well-being of our employees is a top priority at KDP. We provide our employees with the training, tools and resources they need to safeguard their health and that of their families, and we empower them to put safety first. Through teamwork and enhanced safety measures, we are dedicated to reducing risk and improving operations to create the safest environment possible for our team.
KDP’s commitment to creating meaningful social impact in the areas in which we live and work allows us to enrich communities and engage employees.
