At National Foods, we are committed to delivering on our promise of learning, development and growth, the primary pillar of our Employer Value Proposition. This enables our employees to grow through personal and professional development throughout their time at our company.
We invest heavily in each and every department, irrespective of whether it’s on the production floor or serving a support function. This includes our HR team, a group of dedicated, hard-working and devoted business partners who are responsible for and integral to ensuring that every employee is happily engaged, their wellbeing is properly cared for, and that they experience and contribute to the heartbeat of National Food’s company culture.
In the corporate world, HR departments are often viewed as cost centres, and are undervalued with little consideration given to the provision of sufficient budgets, training and resources. In this respect, National Foods stands apart from the rest, acknowledging the essential role that these talent leaders play in going above and beyond. We ensure they are skilled and equipped to support our greater employee workforce.
To take a recent example, we have recently invested in employer branding and marketing training for our HR team. Our leadership and HR Executive acknowledged that in order for our HR advisors to breathe life into the company’s values and culture, they need the right training, implementable tools and creative mechanisms. This will enable them to retain and engage our valued employees; and attract and compete for the right future-fit talent.
Now, as brand advocates, they are sufficiently equipped to share the employee stories and working life behind the nation’s most renowned product brands. In turn, this provides consumers with a new appreciation for the passion, hard work and employee dedication that goes into producing and delivering National Foods’ iconic brands, as they collectively work together to feed and nourish the nation.
