Talent Sustainability

To the employees of PepsiCo…

It is a promise to invest in them to help them succeed, to work continually to develop and retain exceptional people and to create employment opportunities in the communities we serve.

As PepsiCo continues its journey of sustainable growth, we must continue to hire, retain and develop our leadership bench and a highly skilled and diverse workforce. After all, our employees are our greatest strength.

We have an extraordinary talent base across our organization — in our manufacturing facilities, our sales and distribution organization, our marketing groups, our staff functions and our general managers.

As we expand our business, we are heightening our focus on ensuring that we maintain an inclusive environment and develop the careers of our employees. Our goal is to continue to have the leadership talent, capabilities and experience necessary to grow our business well into the future.

Our Goals and Commitments

In 2009, we announced 12 new goals and commitments to achieve Talent Sustainability. These reinforce our promise to develop our employees. Our commitments include enabling our associates to thrive in a diverse, inclusive culture; providing a safe and empowering workplace; providing opportunities that strengthen our associates' skills and capabilities; and contributing to better living standards in the communities we serve.

Culture: Enable our people to thrive by providing a supportive and empowering workplace.

  • Ensure high levels of employee engagement and satisfaction as compared with other Fortune 500 companies.
  • Foster diversity and inclusion by developing a workforce that reflects local communities.
  • Encourage our employees to lead healthier lives by offering workplace wellness programmes.
  • Ensure a safe workplace by continuing to reduce Lost-Time Injury Rates while striving to improve other occupational health and safety metrics through best practices.
  • Support ethical and legal compliance through annual training in our Code of Conduct, which outlines PepsiCo's unwavering commitment to its human rights policy, including treating every employee with dignity and respect.

Career: Provide opportunities that strengthen our employees' skills and capabilities to drive sustainable growth.

  • Become universally recognized through top rankings as one of the best companies in the world for leadership development.
  • Create a work environment in which employees know that their skills, talents and interests can fully develop.
  • Conduct training for employees from the frontline to senior management, in order to ensure that employees have the knowledge and skills required to achieve performance goals.
