We work in close-knit teams with good people, building a co-operative culture. We all come together through a shared passion: water. And we try to bring the same supportive, motivating attitude we enjoy among colleagues into our global business. We’re stronger when we pull together. That’s why our goal is to go home feeling like we belong – to our teams, to Nestlé Waters, and to Nestlé.
Sense of belonging and pride
At Nestlé, with our work culture, employees tend to develop a strong sense of belonging, and real pride in our products, brands, and the work we do.
Promote Nestlé Waters savoir-faire to a wide audience
#CESTMOIQUIFABRIQUE, which translates as “I’m the one who makes this”, is a campaign conducted at five Nestlé factories in France to give the public a glimpse behind the scenes and allow them to find out more about the products they consume. Visitors make a factory tour, meet the director and quality managers, and participate in production line operations alongside factory employees, who act as ambassadors by sharing their passion and expertise.
Continue journey to improve diversity & inclusion
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, and we are expanding our efforts to strengthen this inclusive culture.
Accelerate diversity and inclusion efforts
Nestlé regularly hosts TED-like conferences to promote diversity and inclusion at the workplace. Topics include persons with disabilities, autism, women in production environments, balancing career and family, and more. There are also panel discussions, such as the recent conference on “Nestlé women in Leadership”, where each panelist shared the lessons learned while building their careers.
Employee advocates & ambassadors of our products
The sense of belonging felt by Nestlé employees can quite naturally lead them to play the role of advocate or ambassador, and to talk about their work openly.
Make everyone champion of quality
The “Quality Means More” campaign has been launched worldwide. The video shows Nestlé Waters employees from Egypt, USA, Brazil and Italy talking frankly about Quality, what it means to them, and how they drive it in their daily work. For instance, Pamela Borkmann, Quality Service Manager at Nestlé Waters Brazil, believes in motivating her team and leading by example: “If you want to demand something from others, you have to learn to do it yourself.”
Employees take front stage
Arrowhead has put a new spin on its “Naturally Different” advertising campaign, using their own team members as the star power. Each ad features an employee’s photo against the backdrop of a majestic Southern Californian landscape near Arrowhead spring sources. It includes a short story describing their job and what makes them passionate about Arrowhead. The ad is intended to highlight the authentic connection between the local community and Arrowhead, whose roots go back 121 years.
