Celebrating the success of our people
Our success as a business depends on the success of our people. So we make sure that we create an environment where all our employees feel included and able to perform at their best.
We have a culture where success is celebrated, no matter how big or small. We trust each other and value openess and honesty in our working relationships. As an example, look at our performance management process, Partners for Growth.
This programme provides opportunities for everyone in Diageo to share their broader goals in life and supports them in exploring and harnessing their unique strengths at work.
More generally we recognise that our employees have commitments away from the workplace and encourage working patterns that balance home life and career. We also aim to attract and maintain a diverse employee base with a wide variety of individual characteristics, perspectives and experiences in every part of our business.
Five Values at the heart of everything we do
These are the Values we live and work by. There are five of them, and they’re at the heart of our business:
1. We are passionate about customers and consumers
curiosity and consumer insights drive our growth. We cherish our brands; we are creative and courageous in pursuing their full potential. We are innovative, constantly searching for new ideas.
2. We value each other
we seek and benefit from diverse people and perspectives. We strive to create mutually fulfilling relationships and partnerships.
3. We give ourselves the freedom to succeed
we trust each other, we are open and seek challenge, and we respond quickly to the opportunities this creates.
4. We are proud of what we do
and how we do it – we behave responsibly with the highest standards of integrity.
5. We strive to be the best
we are always learning, always improving. We set high standards, we stretch to exceed them and we celebrate success.
Every year we conduct an employee Values Survey, which gives us valuable information on the ways and degrees in which our Values are being demonstrated individually and across the company.
