Across our operations our overriding principle is that every employee should have the opportunities and support they need to fulfil their potential in a safe and fair workplace where they are listened to and valued, and where diversity and equality are respected.
To support us on our continued drive to deliver world-class performance, Nestlé UK sponsors a team of leading athletes – Team Nestlé. The team, which includes Tom Daley, Shelly Wood, Pete Reed and Fran Halsall, is mentored by Sir Matthew Pinsent.
By working with and learning from others who are best in class we can continue to strive to achieve even greater results for our brands, our organisation and most importantly our people.
At Nestlé, we offer a diverse range of career options and our belief is that performance and potential drive opportunity. We support employees to enable them to perform and achieve their potential through on-the-job experience, coaching and working in high-performing teams, and we provide a wide range of training and development programmes.
A strong focus is also given to developing both core skills and functional expertise – ranging from manufacturing excellence to sales skills and financial competence.
The Nestlé Academy is a new initiative for Nestlé in the UK. In order to address the talent gaps we are seeing across our organisation, over the next two years we will develop a broad programme combining work experience and education. The Academy will offer flexible entry points to attract young people at different life stages, offering routes to NVQ, foundation and honours degree level to school leavers, graduates and current employees to provide varied career development routes through our organisation.
