Our goal is a safe, ethical, diverse and inclusive workplace.
That's not all. For example, we were featured in a Just Food case study about engaging employees in sustainability.
The story highlighted two General Mills initiatives:
- The interactive training developed by our sustainability team to involve employees in helping to meet our goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 28 percent by 2025.
- The habitat for butterflies, bees and other pollinators that employees created at our headquarters facility with the Xerces Society.
Both examples demonstrate our employees’ commitment to improving sustainability and protecting the environment.
We reduced our global total injury rate to 1.20 injuries per 100 employees in fiscal 2016, down from 1.22 in 2015. Our ultimate goal is zero injuries and illnesses.
Three of four employees said General Mills is a great place to work, based on our Employee Engagement Survey of global salaried employees conducted in 2016.
Diversity and inclusion
Our board of directors includes 36 percent female directors and 36 percent who are ethnically diverse. Our U.S.-based workforce includes 39 percent women and 20 percent people who are ethnically diverse. (Board and employee stats based on year-end calendar 2016. Workforce data includes all U.S.-based employees.)
General Mills values everyone’s contributions at work, and that’s why we fully support the WorldatWork Pay Equity principles for U.S. employers, which we helped develop.
