Inclusion & Diversity
Global Business Standards
Working across our global organization to achieve measurable diversity and inclusion objectives in recruitment, retention and engagement
At Sara Lee, we operate in a global and multi-cultural marketplace. Therefore we believe that having a workforce comprised of people from different backgrounds and life perspectives working in every level and area of the organization is key to our success.
To truly flourish, diversity demands a culture of inclusiveness. An inclusive environment uses the talents of a diverse group of individuals to help the company achieve its business goals, while allowing employees to work in a setting where differences are embraced, respected and appreciated. These differences can contribute to the richness of our products, ideas and innovations.
We believe that attracting, developing and retaining a diverse workforce and leadership team will drive better business results. We aim to become the benchmark in this area by creating and sustaining an inclusive environment where all people regardless of race, gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, physical ability, income, religious beliefs, education level, seniority, geography, work and communication styles are given the opportunity to achieve their full potential. We will aggressively provide meaningful responsibility and development opportunities to our employees worldwide.

It is Sara Lee’s mission “To simply delight you… every day.” As we make progress against each of these strategies, our employees, consumers, customers, and suppliers increasingly view Sara Lee and our brands as diverse and reflective of the multi-cultural world in which we live.
