​Investing in our people

We want to empower our people to reach their full potential, so we aim to create a diverse, welcoming culture and a safe working environment.

At the core of our business strategy is our commitment to enable employees to ‘be the best they can be’. From the moment they join Diageo, we want employees to feel engaged: passionate about our strategy, connected to our values, and motivated to achieve their potential. We support our employees through clear policies, competitive reward programmes, coaching and development opportunities and health and wellbeing initiatives.

In empowering our people, we are taking action in four key areas:

Human rights

Everyone has the right to expect their basic human identity and dignity to be fully respected in the workplace. We have outlined our approach in our policies and guidelines, including our Human Rights Policy and Modern Slavery Statement, and we will continue to demonstrate our commitment through our actions.

Health, safety and wellbeing

Creating the conditions for our people to succeed starts with the right to be respected which includes an expectation of safety in the workplace.

A diverse workforce is essential to our success as a multi-national, multi-cultural business. Our aim is to foster a culture that provides opportunities for all and celebrates cultural and individual diversity.

Skills development, training and entrepreneurship

We want our people to feel excited and engaged about working with us. We are committed to investing in our people’s success, for their benefit and for that of our business.

We strongly believe that skills development and training are vital to business growth as well as making Diageo a great place to work and somewhere our people feel empowered to be their best. We offer a range of learning initiatives designed to ensure our people have the support they need to develop.
