For those who have served in the military, it can be a challenge finding a civilian workplace which respects and builds upon the skills learned in service. At Nestlé in the U.S. we want to overcome this challenge, fostering an inclusive working culture that allows our veteran employees and their families to thrive long term.
We want to help equip veterans for employment, to become creative front runners in our company, successful entrepreneurs, and game changers regardless of their field or level of expertise. To help do this, we partner with organizations like Hiring Our Heroes and The Mission Continues.
According to the latest U.S. Census Bureau’s survey of small business owners, there are 2.52 million veteran majority-owned businesses in the U.S. In the same report the, SBA reveals veteran owned small businesses employ more than 5 million people in the U.S.
We are committed to growing our business using diverse-owned suppliers. We believe diverse businesses enhance our global supply base, providing innovative strategies and solutions while meeting or exceeding expectations in the areas of cost, quality and delivery. We ensure that both veteran-owned, as well as service-disabled veteran-owned businesses, have the opportunity to compete for contracting opportunities with Nestlé.
If you are a veteran-owned business who can help Nestlé create shared value, please register in our supplier diversity database to be notified when upcoming procurement opportunities arise within our company.
