PepsiCo – Why Work With Us?


In 1965, Donald Kendall, the CEO of Pepsi-Cola, and Herman Lay, the CEO of Frito-Lay, recognized what they called “a marriage made in heaven,” a single company delivering perfectly-salty snacks served alongside the best cola on earth. Their vision led to what quickly became one of the world's leading food and beverage companies: PepsiCo.

For more than 50 years, as tastes, trends and lifestyles have changed, PepsiCo has evolved with them. Our willingness to adapt and grow has transformed our snack and soda company into a collection of global brands including Pepsi and Quaker, Gatorade and Tropicana, Frito-Lay and beyond. Today, PepsiCo is one of the world’s most-respected companies with products sold in more than 200 countries and territories and 22 brands that generate more than $1 billion each in estimated annual retail sales.

PepsiCo is also celebrated for its commitment to doing business the right way, integrating Purpose into our business strategy. In 2019, we adopted a new vision: to Be the Global Leader in Convenient Foods and Beverages by Winning with Purpose. Winning with Purpose is the next chapter in our purpose agenda and conveys our belief that sustainability can be an even greater contributor to our success in the marketplace.

Our company is made up of six divisions: PepsiCo Beverages North America; Frito-Lay North America; Quaker Foods North America; Latin America; Europe Sub-Saharan Africa; and Asia, Middle East and North Africa. Each of these divisions has its own unique history and way of doing business.

DIVERSITY & ENGAGEMENT

At PepsiCo, we recognize that supporting diversity and engagement is not only the right thing to do, it is the right thing to do for our business. This commitment is woven into our values and our guiding philosophy of Winning with Purpose vision, which recognizes that our company is strongest when we are a company of opportunity that embraces the full spectrum of humanity. That means both building a more diverse, more inclusive workplace, and promoting what we call courageous engagement in our company and the communities we serve.

Celebrating Our History

PepsiCo has a strong legacy of leading in diversity practices, starting in the 1940s as a pioneer in hiring African American salespeople, in the 50s as among the first major companies to have a woman on our Board, and into the 80s as a vanguard of multicultural marketing. Together, with their different perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds, our people are building on this legacy and creating our future across the more than 200 countries and territories in which we operate. Since 2016, we have made external commitments around gender parity, pay equity, and prosperity for all our communities, and each year we continue to celebrate our champions of diversity and inclusion with the Harvey C. Russell and Steve Reinemund Awards.

Gender Parity

PepsiCo leverages diversity and engagement as a competitive business advantage that fuels innovation, strengthens our reputation, and fosters engagement with employees and members of the communities in which we do business. We strive to improve the attraction, retention, and advancement of global and diverse talent to ensure we sustain a high-calibur pipeline, and have set a target to reach gender parity in management roles by 2025.

To guide us on this journey, PepsiCo is an endorser of the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles–Equality Means Business. The Principles offer insight to companies with regard to empowering women in the workplace, marketplace and community.

We are also proud to be part of Catalyst, CEO Champions for Change. This group includes more than 50 high-profile CEOs publicly pledging to advance more women and women of color into senior leadership positions and onto their boards.

Empowering Courageous Engagement

At PepsiCo, we encourage our associates to courageously engage and drive change. Whether that’s standing up and speaking out, sharing opinions or experiences, or creating an environment conducive to dialogue.

Our associates are invited to participate in employee resource groups (ERGs) to help drive a culture of diversity, inclusion and engagement. We support their collective efforts by telling their stories, including events such as the celebration of International Women’s Day by our Women’s Inclusion Network, events around Pride Month led by EQUAL, our group for LGBT+ employees and allies, to the inspiring work of MOSAIC, our ERG for Black associates, through celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Black History Month events in the U.S.

We have also taken the CEO action pledge, which is supporting a more inclusive workplace for employees, communities, and society at large.

Investing In Our Communities

PepsiCo is partnering with the PepsiCo Foundation to support environmental, educational and nutritional initiatives to spur prosperity in communities near where our employees live and work. Our efforts include working to invest USD 100MM in initiatives that will benefit at least 12.5MM women and girls around the world by 2025, with a focus on helping 1.5MM young women progress through school and be successful in the workforce.

An important focus of the Foundation's work is providing skills training and support services that allow women and girls to be able to increase their earnings potential, which benefits not just women but also their families and local communities. We are particularly focused on initiatives that support women in agriculture, including our groundbreaking effort to close the Crop Gap by helping women farmers gain access to the same resources as men.

It’s no secret that this generation of graduates is hungry to work somewhere they can both make a living and make a difference. At PepsiCo, that commitment to doing well by doing good is part of who we are, and it’s one of the main reasons we are committed to recruiting inspired, energetic talent from colleges and universities. If you share that same passion, and hope for a better world, I hope you’ll explore the opportunities at PepsiCo.

"As an Army wife with 15 years of work experience at PepsiCo, I've found flexible opportunities for career growth. Conversations with my managers and mentors helped me understand different career paths and choose a job where I could leverage my strengths and interests.
