Our workforce commitments

Ensuring equity, diversity & inclusion (ED&I) in our own workforce is a key commitment of Kellogg’s Better Days® Promise. This includes our aspirational goals of:

  • Gender 50/50 parity at the management level globally by the end of 2025
  • In the U.S., 25% racially underrepresented talent at the management level by the end of 2025

We’re on track to achieve our ED&I workforce goals. In 2022:

  • 45.7% of management roles globally were filled by woman.
  • 22.7% of management roles in the U.S. were filled by racially underrepresented talent.

In December 2022, Kellogg Europe reached its goal of having 50% male and female representation at Manager level and above—three years ahead of schedule. Kellogg Europe has implemented industry leading employee policies and employee support schemes to make this happen, including leave for menopause, pregnancy loss and fertility treatment, flexible working arrangements and development and training for female talent and leaders.

Note: In May 2022, Kellogg added the option for employees to self-identify as LGBTQ+ in our voluntary internal, confidential HR Self-ID system for the first time. We expect the level of LGBTQ+ self-identifying employees will increase in the future.

Kellogg is a global leader in pay equity

At Kellogg, we believe that creating a place at our table for everyone is only the beginning. It is just as important for us to ensure that our people enjoy fair and unbiased access to the fruits of their labor. This is one way of describing pay equity.

Pay equity is the principle that employees should be compensated the same when they undertake the same or similar responsibilities, and that differences in pay in those circumstances should only be due to legitimate factors, such as differing levels of experience, performance, tenure with the company and the like.

Kellogg has long been committed to compensating our people equitably, not only within our organization but also relative to marketplace norms. We utilized a third party to conduct a meticulous pay equity study of salaried employees in each of our regional businesses. The results affirmed that Kellogg provides equitable compensation across our company.
