At Del Monte, our employees are committed to enriching the lives of today's family-including pets-by providing nourishing, great tasting, and easy-to-use products that meet the needs of everyone in the home.
In turn, the Company strives to nourish and enrich its employees by respecting their work-life balance, providing competitive pay and benefits, championing an inclusive and diverse work environment, and promoting a culture of health and safety.
Del Monte is committed to promoting and preserving a workplace environment rich in diversity — one in which individual differences are not simply tolerated or accepted, but truly appreciated.
Diversity encompasses universally recognized traits such as race, gender and national origin; however, it also includes less obvious individual differences such as socioeconomic background and personal lifestyle.
Our philosophy holds to the belief that promoting these differences in the workplace is a means of encouraging personal and organizational growth and contribution, and enabling individuals and teams. Furthermore, workplace diversity reflects the changing face of the American workforce and population, as well as our customer base.
Del Monte's commitment to diversity is consistent with our shared values: Winning Together, Respect, Ownership and Courage. We are a Company respected in the industry for delivering results.
Del Monte employee benefits are designed to provide employees the flexibility to select a package of coverage that meets their unique needs. Benefits are available to employees and their dependents, including children, spouses, and domestic partners. Benefits may include medical, dental, and vision insurance; short and long-term disability insurance; life insurance; paid time off for vacation and holiday; savings plans; and employee assistance programs. In support of pet ownership and pet care, Del Monte also makes pet insurance available to employees.
In addition to this wide range of benefits, we offer additional benefits that we believe help our employees improve their quality of life. These include an adoption assistance program, pet adoption assistance, community service day allocation, matching gift program, an onsite gym in many locations, and floating holidays.
Professional development is an integral part of our performance system and links to our core values and competencies. Employees are encouraged to participate in opportunities and programs that will contribute to their ability to deliver value and ensure further growth and success for themselves and the Company.
We offer specific developmental programs to help employees meet organizational objectives, enhance their careers, and maintain a consistently high level of performance. These opportunities include:
The health and safety of our employees are of paramount concern to DelMonte. We strive to provide a workplace free of preventable hazards and to comply with all laws and regulations governing workplace safety and health, including the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA). We believe that most accidents and injuries are preventable, and we require that all employees follow the Company’s health and safety rules and procedures to avoid needless injury. As a result of our preventative measures, our total incident rate for calendar year 2011 was 2.91. Our managers and supervisors are expected to keep abreast of and understand the workplace safety laws and regulations that apply to their areas of responsibility and ensure compliance with these provisions.
Del Monte also offers an annual on-site vaccine clinic and Health Fair each year, and encourages all employees to live an active lifestyle, by providing on-site fitness facilities in many locations. There is also a designated Health and Wellness team that keeps employees educated on and involved in monthly activities ranging from healthy snack breaks to yoga classes.
