Equality & Diversity
At Pernod Ricard, we strongly believe in blending performance with conviviality. We apply this mindset to everything we do within our company and beyond. Our last employee survey I Say showed that 94% of our employees were proud to be associated with Pernod Ricard and 88% of our employees said they felt engaged or highly engaged.
We operate in more than 70 countries globally and know it is crucial for our company to mirror the broad spectrum of our consumer base. We’ve leveraged our Better Balance programme to build a more gender balanced workforce and to close the gender pay gap. We are now strengthening our drive for a more diverse and inclusive culture with a new internal roadmap ‘Live without labels’.
As part of creating the best work environment for our employees, we’ve rolled out an updated Group Health and Safety policy, ‘Taking care of each other’, based on the key priorities of culture, leadership and performance.
Outside our organisation, we are committed to sharing our knowledge and to working with our partners to create shared values in our supply chain, ensuring our activities are safe, respectful and responsible. We have also launched a free ‘Bar World of Tomorrow’ training course in partnership with the Trash collective and the Sustainable Restaurant Association to help develop more sustainable bartending practices.
