OUR PEOPLE

CULTURE OF CARE

Our success comes down to one vital ingredient: Our People
Together, through dedication to each other, our common values, and our shared vision, we are building a better business — now and for generations to come.

Learning and Listening

We believe that everyone’s ideas, voice, and actions matter. To put that belief into practice, we cultivate a caring culture that empowers each of us to grow personally and professionally. To help us understand our colleagues’ commitment to the company and where we need to do better, we conduct an all-employee engagement survey every two years.

Building a Diverse Family

Creating a culture of belonging where every individual can bring his or her true self to work is absolutely essential to our success and to our caring environment. The more diverse the skills, talents, and perspectives we can draw on, and the more inclusive our workplace, the better placed Brown-Forman is for the future.

Our Employee Resource Group (ERG) networks help solidify strong team relationships and trust between our people. The ERGs also act as innovation hubs, fostering our people’s unique capabilities and contributing to our business success. More information about our ERGs is available here.
