Putting KP people first is our number one priority. We aim to provide a working environment that’s safe, inclusive, rewarding and inspires all our KP colleagues to be the very best they can be.
By continuing to listen, invest in and develop the potential of our people, we believe our business will continue to be successful – today and for generations to come. Being ‘Good for our People’ is built upon our KP Deal, which covers every part of what makes KP a great place to work. It has four pillars, which provide focus and structure for our people agenda: Wellbeing, Values & Behaviours, Reward & Recognition and Personal Growth.
The wellbeing of our people – physical, emotional and financial, is important to us. Our network of Mental Health First Aiders supports people across our sites and functions, while our communications, reward and wellbeing platform, KP4ME, offers our colleagues a wealth of financial and wellbeing information and advice as well as discounts and offers to help make money go further.
Values & Behaviours
Our Values and Behaviours (V&Bs) focus on ‘how’ KP colleagues do their jobs. We apply them in our performance reviews and development plans, to the way we give recognition and in our recruitment. We have 120 V&B Champions across all levels, sites and functions of KP. They are the ambassadors of our values, helping them live in our business every day.Learn More
Reward & Recognition
Everyone can be recognised at KP through our ‘call out’ card system. Our comprehensive reward package offers competitive salaries, a bonus scheme, a minimum of 25 days’ holiday and the option to buy more. Colleagues can access voluntary benefits that support the financial, mental and physical wellbeing of them and their families. We also offer a great range of discounts to help peoples’ money go further.
We passionately believe in developing our people and helping them grow – it benefits them and helps KP grow too! All colleagues can access online development and e-learning and we support a coaching culture which helps people learn by doing. Our unique leadership development programme includes an immersion into the community to support a deserving cause.
Inclusion and Diversity
Our aim is for KP Snacks to feel like a diverse family where everyone feels they belong. To drive this forward, our Values & Behaviours Steerco, which is led by our CEO and HR Director, has Inclusion and Diversity (I&D) as a focus. Our I&D programme has four key workstreams: Culture, Leadership, Recruitment and Progression and already 85% of our leaders and V&B champions have attended Inclusive Culture training.
