Decent employment and equal opportunities are fundamental to our culture. We are proud of our diversity, and have numerous programmes in place to promote gender balance and the inclusion of diverse people in our workforce. We also have an important role to play in providing a workplace that treats people with dignity and respect. Discover more about what we do in our communities to enhance ourselves and others, respect one another and stay true to our values.

Promoting diversity and inclusion

At Nestlé…

Enhancing lives begins with our people. We are driven by our purpose and guided by our values. Diversity and inclusion are an integral part of the Nestlé culture and respecting diversity is one of our core values. Our ambition is to create a business culture, environment and leadership that provide equal opportunities for everyone to contribute, grow and feel valued.


We recognise the role women play in society and strive to create an environment that empowers women to successfully balance their multitasking roles. As at 2021, approximately 10% of our workforce and 18% of our managerial staff consist of women.

Everyone holds unconscious beliefs about social norms and identity groups. We train our employees on unconscious bias locally and globally to explain how to understand, accept and value our differences.

Going beyond…

Our commitment to promoting diversity extends beyond Nestlé. 50% of our coconut farmers, over 30% of our dairy farmers, 51% of students in our Nestlé Healthy Kids Programme and 52% of children in our Kids Athletics Programme are females.

Reaching out to the differently abled

We respect international conventions concerning employees’ rights and do not tolerate discrimination for reasons such as origin, nationality, religion, race, gender, age or sexual orientation. Practicing the above principle, we are currently looking at working with partners to enhance employment and training opportunities for disabled individuals in the private sector and provide opportunities for them to be a part of our culture.

Nestlé Needs YOUth Programme

To help young people become more employable, we launched our Nestlé needs YOUth programme in 2016. It focuses on providing young people skill training and employment opportunities. Today, approximately 26% of our workforce are under 30 years of age, 62% of our workforce are millennials and 7.5% of our workforce belongs to Generation Z. Through various interventions such as our Internship Programme and university initiatives, we are engaging with millennials and helping them be better prepared to enter the professional world, so they improve their chances in a challenging job market.
