Co-building our roadmap
In 2018, we started a new annual strategic routine involving Danone employees: ‘One Person, One Voice, One Share’, a pioneering program that gives the opportunity to each of our more than 100,000 employees to co-build the company’s future in a transparent and inclusive way.
Each employee was invited to participate in a worldwide digital consultation to share his or her views—as an employee, as a consumer, as a citizen—on what is urgent to address at local and global level. The response to our first worldwide consultation was incredible: more than 75,000 people from all our production sites to offices around the globe made their voice heard.
We collected 360,000 verbatims in 35 languages, and some 35,000 employees have volunteered to analyze the consultation’s results and insights.
Fostering an ownership mindset
In addition, starting in 2019, each employee will be granted one Danone share combined with an annual, amplified dividend-based incentive scheme. By building on the power of many and deepening an ownership mindset, ‘One Person, One Voice, One Share’ is a unique inclusive experience.
This yearly routine will enable us to move forward to embrace the food revolution and create sustainable profitable value for all.
