Benefits & Perks
As a global, diverse and dynamic company, we offer many exciting opportunities and a total rewards package to match.
Our vision and values should shape everything we do. We believe strongly that they should be lived and experienced every day. By providing our people with a healthy diet and sporting activities, we support our principle of ‘healthy minds in healthy bodies,’ and create the healthy workforce that sets us apart.
Our appeal to new and existing people doesn’t just rest on the financial rewards and benefits we offer. Our name conveys hard-earned value and trust in all our people. We pride ourselves on our strong relationships between line managers and fellow workers. We offer a global, diverse and enriching environment. And we have countless possibilities to learn and grow. All these factors – our Total Rewards as we call them – contribute to our appeal.
Provide a globally consistent framework with the flexibility for each Market to create competitive programmes that comply with local legislation.
Focus on attracting and retaining talented employees, building a high-performance culture and ensuring a highly engaged workforce that achieves sustainable business results.
Although there are variations between Markets in what employees value, there are also some common elements:
A high performance culture supported by differentiated rewards and development is key to the delivery of individual and business objectives. This is driven by the alignment of clear and challenging responsibilities and priorities and ensuring that employees are aware of how their work impacts Nestlé.
At Nestlé you will have the support and encouragement to achieve true fulfillment, by growing professionally and personally, collaborating with colleagues and partners diverse in both culture and ways of thinking.
Succession Planning is the way in which we plan career development and fill middle and senior-level jobs. We are very methodical about how we plan this process. Nothing is left to chance. Our succession plans cover all the key jobs in Nestlé and include a list of forecasted potential successors for those roles.
Our Corporate Mentoring Programme will help you to accelerate your development through relationship-based support, transfer of experience of key insights and unwritten rules as well as bringing exposure to the areas beyond the current role.
International Training Center
Our International Training Centre in Switzerland will provide you with a variety of programmes and courses to exchange knowledge and share ideas with colleagues from other countries
There is always an opportunity to deepen your expertise and develop leadership by getting an international experience. We have over 2000 expatriates in some 96 countries. Together with other multinationals we have launched an exclusive network that help dual career spouses with their local job search as well as professional integration in a new country.
Our Nestlé needs YOUth programme aims to help people get skilled and get hired.
The Nestlé Global YOUth Initiative is an investment for the future. We want to continue developing the next generation of Nestlé Leaders
In order to create an even bigger societal impact, Nestlé founded the Alliance for YOUth in 2014 with more than 200 companies participating.
The 'Alliance for YOUth' is the first pan-European business-driven movement pledging to help young people be better prepared to enter the professional world, and improve their chances in a challenging job market. The Alliance will offer 230,000 new work opportunities for young Europeans between 2017 and 2020. It has already provided training and jobs for 115,000 young Europeans since 2014. Learn more about the Alliance for YOUth.
We aim to provide a workplace culture that generates equal opportunities for everyone.
Women at Nestlé
Read these stories from some of the women in key management roles across the organisation.
Amaka Nwokorie is a Lagos-based branch manager with 21 years experience at Nestlé. She thrives on challenges and sees everyday as an opportunity to learn something.
Having started as a management trainee, she has climbed through the ranks over two decades without officially applying for any other positions. Her hard work speaks for itself!
You need to be a self-starter and a hard worker. Do that and the sky is the limit.
This is an important project for Sonia. R&D is a main contributor to Nestlé’s success in the long term, and there’s a huge network to leverage from. She finds it fascinating to watch the organisation become leaner on a global scale.
Now manages a global project that involves reviewing the R&D network so that it can deliver innovations to a level the business expects – thereby ensuring long-term growth.
That positive attitude gets people behind you during a time of change and closer to the vision.
Suzanne Diop isn't just interested with results, she wants to know how people get to their results. With 27 years experience, the Accra-based Head of NBS is a fan of pragmatism as well as efficiency and flexibility.
Her team describes her as humble and direct while she says her biggest achievement is seeing the people she manages reach their full potential.
My advice to women is: be bold.
