Investing in people
Our founder, W.K. Kellogg said, “I’ll invest my money in people.” More than 100 years later, we continue to put people first. For our employees, this dedication to people means that we offer competitive benefits and rewards packages around the world, and an environment where success is celebrated.
As we advance our Deploy for Growth strategy, it is imperative that our employees exhibit the skills and behaviors needed to ensure our company’s continued success. To clearly convey these expectations, we identified Growth Competencies, six for all employees and two more for people managers. The Growth Competencies complement employees’ existing functional and technical competencies and are grounded in our K Values™. For all employees they include having courage, building effective teams, being nimble learners, having a strategic mindset, driving results and focusing on the customer. Additionally, people managers are expected to develop talent and drive engagement.
To support our employees in building their skills and careers, Kellogg strives to create an aspirational learning culture. We leverage the global LinkedIn Learning platform of on-demand, online video courses covering a great variety of professional and personal development topics. Kellogg salaried employees use the platform to upskill as needed, immediately improving themselves and our business.
Providing training and development in manufacturing facilities is always a challenge, given the nature of the work and working hours. To support the career development of these employees, our Kellogg North America Supply Chain team has developed two unique training programs based on the specific needs of the operations community.
- Front-line leaders now have a standard 30-day onboarding program and additional training in team building; and,
- Talent Builders is a monthly career development conference call open to all salaried employees to help them plan and build their Kellogg careers.
