Diversity & Inclusion

“The term, “Diversity and Inclusion” is a concept that every company strives to embed in their company culture. However, mental barriers and unconscious bias’s block us from using the full scope of potential which is provided by nature. Companies will not successfully survive in the long run when “more of the same” is the prevailing way of working. My AGRANA enables diversity in culture, age, gender, race, religious beliefs, sexual orientation and others.  Every person has the responsibility to create an inclusive environment that generates a sense of belonging for all.“

(Kerstin Schuster, Corporate HR Director, AGRANA)

Spanning more than 13 time zones, 20 different languages, a multi-generational workforce with wide-ranging nationalities and perspectives, diversity is an essential element of working life at AGRANA. We have firmly anchored diversity and inclusion as integral components of our fundamental principles since our aim is to maintain and promote this diversity among our, in the meantime, more than 9,000 employees and to extend and further strengthen their equal participation in the company.

Our D&I initiative and a global network of D&I officers form the cornerstones of our efforts to promote a diverse and inclusive corporate culture for all our employees around the world and contribute on a daily basis to creating a working environment which is free of constraints and discrimination.
