Tetra Pak U.S. and Canada 2022 Sustainability Report: People

NORTHAMPTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / December 14, 2022 / Tetra pack

Taste of Tetra Pak

In summer 2021 we launched Taste of Tetra Pak sample boxes to keep our employees, many of whom work remotely or hybrid, connected to our work across packaging, processing and services.

The curated boxes give employees and their friends and families the opportunity to sample many of the new, innovative products that Tetra Pak has helped make possible. And because they’re all packaged in shelf-stable Tetra Pak® cartons, they’re easy to ship to employees’ homes without refrigeration!

Core Wellbeing

In the US and Canada, Tetra Pak employees can take advantage of Core Wellbeing, a program that helps all employees and their families achieve, maintain and protect their personal health and wellbeing goals so they can protect what is good for others .

Now in its third year, the program continues to strengthen the five pillars of comprehensive wellbeing (physical, mental, financial, community and social) through a variety of resources and activities. In the past year, nearly a quarter of all employees in the US and Canada have participated in at least one Core Wellbeing activity. The program ranges from physical challenges like Move Your Way to Mental Wellbeing Week and Financial Literacy Month with educational activities from our pension providers.

During Mental Health Awareness Month, Core Wellbeing dedicated a week to mental health. Employees were invited to wear green to support mental health awareness and participate in a BINGO game to help find simple ways to prioritize mental wellbeing every day. In addition to daily communications with resources and tools to support mental wellbeing, many Tetra Pak locations hosted a Wellness Wednesday event featuring chair massages, organic juices, healthy snacks and printed resources to support the mental wellbeing of all employees.

Employee feedback on Core Wellbeing programs has been overwhelmingly positive, with 98% of participants saying it is important or very important for Tetra Pak to offer such programs.

“It’s so important to have those reminders (or opportunities to share information) with employees! Keep it up!!

“Opened my eyes to be more attuned to things I need to do to manage my health.”

“Good explanation of mental health and how it affects each person differently. I liked some of the tools provided to help with mental health and stress.”

Core wellbeing programs often emphasize the importance of wellness visits and the psychological wellbeing benefits available through our health plans. One of the key messages of the Mental Wellbeing Program pillar is that it’s okay not to be okay. Since the launch of Core Wellbeing, mental health visits have increased by 14%. This shows that employees are now more familiar with the benefits available to them and recognize the importance of proactive self-care.

Recruitment of the best talent

Every person at Tetra Pak is an important part of our vision to make food safe and available everywhere. We are implementing new ways to ensure we have the right people with the right skills to make this vision possible.

Sometimes the best way to recruit new talent is to ask current employees what they love about their job—and that’s exactly what we’ve done at our Winsted, Minnesota location. We used employee insights to create a series of videos that showcase what it’s like to work at Tetra Pak and the opportunities for growth within the company.

Our Future Talent and Internship programs continue to be a great way to introduce young professionals to the many opportunities in the food and beverage industry. Future Talent gives graduates the opportunity to become the next generation of leaders in our industry and offers both a technical and leadership course.

“The most important thing I love and appreciate about Tetra Pak is that they have given me a role where I can wake up in the morning and be excited to go to work because every day is different than the day before.”
Tergel Erdenebat, Application Expert for Cheese, Tetra Pak USA and Canada

“Tetra Pak was my first career stop. I chose Tetra Pak because the Future Talent Program gave me the opportunity to learn my first year on the job and Tetra Pak was willing to pay for my automation certifications. I saw that this was a great opportunity because these courses will stay with me for life.”
Samir Waliany, Preventive Maintenance (PM) Area Engineer, Tetra Pak USA and Canada

Diversity, equity and inclusion

Tetra Pak is committed to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) within the organization. In the US and Canada, we continue to support these efforts by investing in a local DE&I roadmap. Together with an external consultant, we gather insights from employees through voluntary focus groups and surveys. This information is used to identify growth opportunities and shape our DE&I strategy in the US and Canada.

Julia Luscher, Vice President Marketing, Tetra Pak, was a keynote speaker at the Sustainable Brands ’21 Women’s Leadership Lunch. One hundred and fifty women leaders shared sustainability challenges, achievements and best practices for women.

“Diversity brings new perspectives, fresh ideas and better innovations. At Tetra Pak, we support women 100% in the food and beverage industry, but we continue to see gender gaps. Therefore, it is our responsibility to ensure that we try to bridge these gaps fairly but ethically.”
Julia Luscher Vice President Marketing, Tetra Pak
