Building a winning team and culture

Building a winning team and culture is the first pillar of our business strategy because we understand that we are only as strong as our people.

In 2021, we refreshed our purpose and values to better reflect who we are today and what Campbell is all about: Connecting people through food they love.

We’ve evolved our leadership team, improved our business fundamentals, and demonstrated a renewed spirit of creativity and competitiveness.

Highlights

  • Put our people and culture at the center of our strategic plan
  • Launched My Moments, an integrated framework focused on nine career-defining moments, designed to help our employees thrive
  • Set new learning objectives for all salaried people leaders related to our values and Inclusion & Diversity (I&D) strategy
  • Redesigned our awards and recognition program to celebrate employees whose behaviors exemplify our values

Prioritizing inclusion and diversity

We’re building a company where everyone can be real, and feel safe, valued, and supported to do their best work. Our inclusion and diversity (I&D) strategy is designed to build capabilities to drive change, strengthen ally networks and communities through advocacy, and ensure accountability and transparency around our progress.

Capabilities

To build our capabilities, we’re increasing I&D learning opportunities and standardizing key processes throughout the company. In 2021, we documented our existing processes related to hiring, talent management, and performance to provide visibility to employees and ensure we’re consistent in our approach.

Our change agents—a cross-divisional, diverse group of 30 employees nominated by the Campbell Leadership Team—immersed in conversations which challenged their perceptions around inclusion in order to learn. Together, the group developed strategies to drive culture change across the company.

Advocacy

To create an inclusive workplace, we’re supporting employees and organizations working to end racism and discrimination. We’re advocating for change through our three-year, $1.5 million commitment to support nonprofit organizations that raise awareness and fight discrimination.

We also have nearly a dozen employee resource groups (ERGs) that work to develop talent, build our corporate culture, and coach employees. Many of the ERGs offer mentorship programs aimed at building individual capabilities, achieving personal and professional goals, and networking with colleagues. 

Accountability

To foster accountability, we’re tracking progress against our I&D initiatives and reporting regularly to the company. We also updated the language in our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics to better reflect the inclusivity of Campbell.

We’re proud that as a result of this work, we were recognized by Forbes as one of America’s Best Employers for Diversity in 2021 and included on the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index for the fourth year in a row.

Caring for our people

We want all our employees to feel like they truly belong at Campbell. At the end of the day, caring for our people is the most important thing we do. That’s why we continue to foster a work environment where all employees can learn, grow, and thrive, both professionally and personally. It’s why we’re building a safety-focused culture and why we provide a variety of resources and benefits to support our employees while they’re at work and at every stage of life.

Early in the pandemic, we established a COVID-19 task force, a team of seven leaders who met every day to establish health protocols, write new policies, and ensure that safety measures were in place at all plants and offices. Our stringent protocols have helped us avoid any significant COVID-19 spread in our facilities.

We’re committed to ensuring Campbell is a great place to work and prioritizing the safety and well-being of our employees each and every day.

What makes Campbell special to me is the people. I’ve been here for over 30 years, and it’s great to come to work when you enjoy the people you are working with.
