PepsiCo has been recognised as a Top Employer in both Australia and New Zealand for its ongoing efforts to put its people first in the workplace.
The Top Employer Institute reviews employers across several key HR practices including People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Learning and Development, Wellbeing and Diversity and Inclusion.
As a company that prides itself on its innovation, PepsiCo has always sought to be ‘people-centric’, implementing policies built around the needs of its people.
Recently, PepsiCo ANZ introduced a ‘flextime’ policy, removing official start and finish times – allowing people to choose their work hours and balance personal responsibilities and lifestyle with work.
PepsiCo’s certification as a Top Employer highlights its dedication to creating meaningful opportunities for its employees to have an impact, gain new skills and build successful careers in a diverse and inclusive workplace.
“We are proud to have received this prestigious recognition from the Top Employer Institute. We work hard to foster a work environment where our people can be themselves and have the freedom and flexibility to pursue what inspires them both in and outside of work. It is really rewarding to have that formally acknowledged,” said Danny Celoni, CEO, PepsiCo ANZ.
PepsiCo was also awarded the Top Employer Global certification for the first time in 2021 and was one of just 16 organisations worldwide to earn the designation.
Top Employers Institute CEO David Plink says: “Despite the challenging year we have experienced (which has certainly made an impact on organisations around the globe), PepsiCo has continued to demonstrate the power of putting their people first in the workplace.
“We are proud to share this year’s announcement and congratulate the organisations that have been certified in their respective countries by the Top Employers Institute program.”
The program has certified and recognised more than 1,600 Top Employers in 120 countries/regions across five continents.
