As reflected in our 2021 Purpose-led Performance Report, we’ve made measurable progress towards our overall diversity, equity and inclusion goals. Most notably, we’ve made strides for women and ethnically diverse talent in leadership. Additionally, to reflect a more holistic approach to employee success and wellbeing at McCormick, we’ve added equity to our diversity, equity and inclusion strategy.

Supporting Our Employees

We support employees throughout their McCormick careers by providing several professional growth programs and critical benefits designed to empower our global teams. We offer continuing leadership programs like our U.S. Ignite Program for ethnically diverse talent, as well as the Global Women’s Ignite program, both of which provide colleagues the opportunity to connect with each other while also giving them the tools needed to own their careers.

We also knew our employees’ needs were varied and valid throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, so we worked closely with our people and implemented continuous listening programs that let us understand and adapt to their needs while keeping our business operating with the fewest disruptions possible. Our work here is never done, so we leverage our annual employee engagement survey, VIBE, to generate new insights that drive action and improve results across our business.

Health and Safety For All

Through the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of our employees was our top priority. At McCormick, we know we have a special responsibility to ensure our employees are protected and feel supported through times of uncertainty. We believe that an environment free of risks and hazards drives our forward-looking and mitigative approach to provide a safe workplace, which promotes the health of all employees as we look to drive real actions to attain our zero-injuries goal. 

Mental health is just as important as physical wellbeing at McCormick. That is why we created our Caring Conversations initiative, encouraging conversations between employees and their managers. We have found that by equipping managers with the right tools and recourse, they were able to connect, better understand and support employees individually while also gaining broader insights about what they needed. We’ve also taken steps to promote wellness globally, recognizing that each region will have its own priorities and recourses that best match the people in those areas. McCormick locations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa host Free Fruit Wednesdays to provide employees with healthy snack options and celebrate Mental Health Awareness Week each year.
