Culture & Diversity

WE HAVE A UNIQUE AND VIBRANT CULTURE, AND STRENGTHEN IT WITH EVERY HIRE WE MAKE

“Being ‘One Hershey’ is about winning together and bringing our whole selves to work each and every day. We value the contributions that each individual brings through our different experiences and backgrounds. We are the sum of our experiences — and our business and connections to consumers are enriched by it.” – Michele Buck, President & CEO

​​​​​​​Working at Hershey is built on agile collaboration with a bias for action, openness to change and building together. If you’re decisive, enjoy smart risk taking and thrive on opportunity, Hershey is the place for you. If you have a desire to give back to your community or communities around the world, you’ll feel right at home here. We believe that success is better when it’s shared.

PRIDE IN WHAT WE DO

Giving back is not just a speech we recite at company meetings. We live it every day. Our long history of helping our communities stems from our founder, Milton Hershey. His success as a businessman enabled him to make a lasting contribution to society by helping those less fortunate. For nearly a century, the Hershey Trust Company has carried out this mission, administering the Milton Hershey School and serving the community of Hershey, Pennsylvania.

Today, our heritage of helping to prepare children for success in life is carried out through Nourishing Minds, our global commitment to providing basic nutrition for kids in need to help them learn and grow. This work is fueled by the creativity, skills and passion of Hershey employees around the world. We know we can make a meaningful difference by using our unique expertise in food production to help children in need focus on their studies rather than their stomachs.

DIVERSITY AT HERSHEY

The foundation for our vision of global growth is a vibrant, diverse workforce. Our eight Business Resource Groups (BRGs) support every employee around the world with an inclusive work environment. We rely on these groups for finding and developing the kinds of talent, skills, knowledge and cultural awareness that will ensure innovation and success for The Hershey Company into the 21st Century. Hershey’s BRG’s include the Abilities First, African American, Asian, genH(Generations), Latino, Prism (LGBTQ and Allies Affinity Group), Veterans and Women’s group.
