WE TAKE CARE OF OUR PEOPLE
Focused on safety and well-being at work, life balance and well-being, and training and development. We create safe, healthy, diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplaces, fostering a culture of personal and professional development for all our associates.
1.- Safety and Well-being at Work
This is our priority. Through Grupo Bimbo’s Global Security Policy, we establish that the physical integrity of our associates is ahead of the operational efficiency and results of the company.
Our commitment is based on five foundations with which we seek to create a culture of self-care, thus preventing accidents and diseases:
- Any injury can be avoided.
- We are obliged to work safely.
- We are responsible for each other’s safety and well-being.
- To be a world-class company, we must have exemplary performance in safety and permanent improvement in our well-being.
- We can build a balanced life.
2.- WELL-BEING AND LIFE BALANCE
We are committed to fostering initiatives that promote a culture of health, self-care, and balance among all our associates.
DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION (DEI)
We created the global office of Organizational Culture and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to accelerate the impact of our strategy. We have specialists and DEI Committees in every place where we operate, to follow up on initiatives and deliver reports to the DEI Central Committee.
As part of the actions carried out by DEI, we have strategies based on three axes, which have their initiatives and programs:
- Talent Management
- External presence or market
- Associate Experience
We develop programs that allow us to create, establish and implement practices that guarantee the representation, inclusion, and equity of all our associates:
- Talent attraction
- Online course: inclusive interviews
- Seminar on diversity and inclusion
- Guidelines for different candidates
- Leadership circles
- Unconscious prejudices course
We invest in relationships that create meaningful ties and allow us to contribute positively to the market and the communities we serve.
- External Forums
- External Communication
- Marketing Campaigns
- School Visits
- Good Neighbor Program
- Working together with UN WOMEN
Through actions, we reaffirm our commitment to building the best workplace and constructing a positive difference in our environment as agents of change that make a better company.
3.- TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT
We have ongoing training programs focused on institutional issues and specialized content according to the different profiles of our associates. To achieve this, we have the support of GB University, our internal teaching platform promoted by heads and development leaders in each organization.
To endorse our commitment to drive the development of the associates, we disseminate and follow up on online courses, face-to-face, and virtual training, and the annual training plan.
Global online program for managers and executives focused on human flourishing and economic growth through good leadership practices.
It is a differential element and a competitive advantage of our company, whose function is to identify and develop talent annually. It measures people’s performance, strengths, and areas of opportunity to reward them equitably according to their professional growth.
