Our Global Wellbeing program for employees outlines McCormick’s commitment to having 80% of our global employees participating in wellness initiatives and programs by 2025. In 2020, we reinforced our commitment to employee wellness by building it into our organizational structure and hiring our first Global Wellbeing Lead, a new position charged with providing additional resources and support around mental health. Since then, we’ve launched Nourish, McCormick’s first global wellbeing program. Nourish is meant to define and broaden the definition of wellbeing for our entire global workforce and prioritize programs that support personal wellbeing for our employees. Programs within Nourish include those aimed at improving physical health and fitness, supporting work-life balance and ensuring personal growth. As we continue focusing on building sustainable engagement and measuring our employees’ motivations and energies to deliver their best performances, our 2022 roadmap includes a plan to capture participation rates over time.
Over the past two years, many of our employees experienced outside stressors caused by the pandemic and other events. To address these new challenges, we implemented our Caring Conversations initiative, which equips managers with tools and resources to connect with, better understand and support employees.
We have also developed a mental health toolkit for our non-corporate, frontline workers, to ensure company-wide access and participation. Regular wellness screenings remain a priority as well. Through McCormick’s new wellness investments and long-held commitments, we’re demonstrating that wellness programs are an integral part of how we care for our employees.
McCormick has worked to build holistic wellness into the foundation of our benefit programs. Among the programs we offer, we recently introduced the Nourish wellness campaign that offers resources and classes to employees on mental and financial wellbeing, time management and healthy eating tips. This program, an evolution of the Together McCormick program, helps us formalize participation data within the organization while addressing top-of-mind issues.
