Building for inclusion: Nestlé’s blueprint for leadership recruitment

by HRD Connect | Report

With organic sales growth of 7.7% in Q1 2021, Nestlé has continued to thrive during the pandemic. The food manufacturing giant has also continued to diversify, notably in the vitamins market.

However, some of the most significant changes can be witnessed in the company’s workforce. The pandemic has forced this traditionally ‘in-office’ company to embrace new ways of working and rethink the structure of its teams.

As Paul Steadman, HR director for Nestlé UK & Ireland explains, this has required the company to demand new skills of its leaders and adapt its approach to recruiting top talent.
