“We’re committed to diversity of thought and diversity of background. We’re a relatively small company and we’re trying to win in the global marketplace. In order to win, I believe we have to rely on multiple viewpoints.”
– Al R., GM & CMO, Energizer Personal Care, U.S.
With 16,000 people located in over 50 countries around the world, we definitely are a diverse group. Our colleagues hail from all backgrounds, ethnicities, lifestyles and belief systems. So, does having so many different people in so many different places pose a challenge for a single consumer goods company? On the contrary, it’s one of our greatest assets.
A greater diversity of ideas.
We believe diversity of thought is the very thing that brings out the best ideas for both our business and the consumer alike. Which is why, fundamentally, it all comes down to respect - everyone counts, everyone has a voice and an opinion that matters. We know from experience that big, game-changing ideas can come from anyone, anywhere. But we also know that these ideas come most often when we are all working together.
Collaboration is the key.
We believe that together is better. So, we build diverse teams and create initiatives that include colleagues from different backgrounds, offices, functions and levels of the organization. [PAGEBREAK]
Doing so gives our people a much deeper understanding and appreciation of one another, the marketplace and the global community, which lets us develop the innovative solutions that solve problems and deliver on our ambitious goals.
So you see our diversity is one of our most valuable aspects – one that enables us to keep challenging, keep growing and keep getting stronger as a company.
