Nestlé has received an overall score of 78 per cent in the 2022 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI) and is recognised for a fourth consecutive year.
The GEI measures gender equality across five pillars: equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, female leadership and talent pipeline, anti-sexual harassment policies, and pro-women brands.
Nestlé’s score is up ten per cent from last year and is above the index average score of 71 per cent.
Béatrice Guillaume-Grabisch, Head of Group Human Resources and Global Business Services, said Nestlé is pleased its efforts to support and champion gender equality were recognised in this year’s index.
“We know that improving gender balance will lead to better decisions, stronger innovation, and higher work satisfaction. This is why we have set measurable goals to track our progress and hold ourselves accountable. It’s a journey we are committed to and one where we will challenge ourselves to keep doing better.”
At Nestlé, women hold 43.9 per cent of the company’s managerial positions and Nestlé has committed to increase the number of women in its top 200+ senior executive positions to 30 per cent by 2022.
The company has also introduced a gender-neutral Global Parental Support Policy which recognises that parental roles are not solely defined by gender and provides flexible support for any family unit.
