We are fair with our employees and maintain an environment that encourages personal responsibility within the Company, the community, and our lives. We expect our employees to be responsible for not only their individual jobs but for the Company as a whole. We seek employees with integrity who are committed to preserving and enhancing the values and principles inherent in our Basic Beliefs, and who share a passion for Our Purpose.
We firmly believe that:
- Every employee makes a difference.
- An inclusive environment and diverse organization strengthens our Company and enables every employee to reach their full potential.
- Highest quality people produce the highest quality products and services.
- Highest business ethics require the highest personal ethics. Responsible people produce exceptional results.
Along with managing the day-to-day business, we continuously look forward and focus on the potential of our Company. Growing is reaching for that potential through:
- Acquisition of new brands and development of strategic partnerships;
- Innovation leading to the development of new products and new markets;
- Discovery of new management or manufacturing capabilities; and
- Personal growth and development of our people and their ideas.
Growth also requires that we maintain a global perspective of the world in which we conduct business and a responsibility for our impact on the cultural, economic, environmental, and social fabric of our global community.
We are committed to strong balanced growth within prudent financial parameters. This balanced growth will enable us to both enhance our consumer franchise and provide a fair return to our shareholders. We remain independent from short-term, external influences because we believe that when we make decisions with a long-term perspective, growth will naturally follow.
