Caregiving leverages inclusion: Mondelez’ D&I culture

At Mondelēz International is a global leader in snacking foods. When it comes to their HR policies, wellbeing has always been a priority.

The company is keen on focusing on valuing people for all they are. They want to recognize them for who they are, both as professionals and as people.

In September 2020, they were working remotely through the pandemic. The company decided to start working with Lifeed, opening up the initiative to all those who work in their Italian offices. It was an opportunity for people to journey with the company, recognizing the value that caregiving brings.

The fact that they launched the project during a time of emergency helped people to feel ‘seen’ in their multiple roles, more aware of their value and welcomed by the company in sharing their experiences with others.

“We started a kind of osmosis with Lifeed. Especially the idea of valuing people for all they are, and not just as employees”, explained Olga Lo Conte People Lead, Labor Relations Italy at Mondelēz International. “Today, talking to caregivers is a key pillar of our inclusion policy”.
