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.
