Our Company: Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity at Dr. Oetker

Il pillar Our Company della Carta della Sostenibilità di cameo

We see diversity as an opportunity.

At Dr. Oetker, our focus is on people. To live up to this principle, we rely on three pillars: respectful interaction, a safe work environment, and a diverse workforce. We firmly believe that a diverse and inclusive corporate culture is the key to more creativity and innovation. That is why we made promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace one of the key objectives of our Sustainability Charter.

Our Ambition

It is our purpose to create a taste of home. So, we’re curious about individual talent and everybody’s involvement – not age, gender, nationality, background, or whom you love. What counts is your authentic self. Thus, we strongly believe that diversity and inclusion will bring out the best in all of us. We want our corporate culture to be a home for everyone, and we’re all in.

"We value differences and want to foster diversity and inclusion within Dr. Oetker. Not because the topic is a current trend. But because we firmly believe that it is mutually beneficial for people and the business." – Nina Hofmann, Executive Manager Talent, People and Culture, International.
