Diversity and inclusion is central to everything we do and is reflected across our business. pladis brings together brands and people from around the globe – and this diversity is our great strength.
We recognise that we need diversity in our teams too – we couldn’t create our much-loved products without our end-to-end team, and the more diversity we have, the more creative we can be.
From the very beginning we have fostered an inclusive environment that people of all backgrounds want to join, feel that they can bring their whole selves to, and are able to maximise their potential regardless of their gender, economic background, age or any other characteristic. This is a central tenet of our global Code of Conduct and our Winning Traits and Behaviours which are embodied by our colleagues.
To drive this culture – and take sustainable action on improving female representation at management levels – we have this year established a Diversity and Inclusion Forum.
We are a business in which women can, and do, thrive: and we have a graduate programme with a primary aim of leadership development. We know we have further to go – and we are committed to talking about this openly and getting there together.
