We believe in the Power of We

Inhalt

At FrieslandCampina we understand that everyone is unique and brings their own set of qualities and perspectives. We cherish this uniqueness because we know that diverse teams are the best teams that can move mountains when everyone feels valued, respected and engaged. 

To unleash this Power of We, FrieslandCampina aspires to create a safe and inclusive working environment that allows all employees to bring their best and authentic selves to work. In order to reach our goals we have formulated an Inclusive Diversity strategy together with a passionate group of employees from all over the world and from all parts of the organisation.

Inclusive Diversity

We use the term Inclusive Diversity (ID) because diversity and inclusion are not two separate themes. Diverse teams, in which people cannot be themselves, are not optimally effective; whilst a team with an inclusive culture may not always be a true reflection of society. Diversity and Inclusion can therefore only be successful when they are complementary. That's why we strive for Inclusive Diversity.

ID vision

Inhalt

We believe that we need to create a safe and inclusive working environment for all employees with equal access to career development and opportunities so that everyone can bring their best and authentic selves to work and unleash their true nature. This will drive a better and more sustainable business performance.

Focus Areas

On a global level FrieslandCampina is committed to four ID focus areas:

  • Gender parity
  • Honouring different cultures and religions
  • Supporting our LGBTIQ+ community
  • Mental health and physical disability

When You Grow, We Grow

We have set ambitious short and long term goals and work with external partners to support us in achieving them. We use data to inform objective discussion and action, educate and create awareness around the value of ID, set and enforce policies and guidelines to create a consistent global approach, and build internal communities from the grass roots of our organization upwards.

It is the diversity of our people, their individual enthusiasm and our collective commitment that makes FrieslandCampina such a special place to work.  

FrieslandCampina’s Inclusive Diversity strategy has been formulated in close cooperation with the Inclusive Diversity Committee, which consists of employees from all over the world. The ID Committee meets regularly and its members drive and challenge our ID activities. The implementation of our ambition is supported further by a network of Local Champions who help to share best practices, cascade global initiatives and ensure the Committee remains well informed of local needs.

Using learnings from the past for a more inclusive future

"I want to ensure that our colleagues and the generations to come have a working environment without biases and where everyone, regardless of their background, religion, gender, and age can truly be themselves and get equal opportunities to grow, both in their career and personally." 

Gökhan, inclusive by nature

Moving towards a better world for everyone

"Achieving gender equity, or diversity and inclusion in general, is not about any given company or organisation achieving a goal, it’s about society moving towards a better world for everyone."
