Health & Wellbeing
The health and safety of our employees is a key priority at Kerry Group and the Group’s safety policy establishes the fundamental principles that all employees must consider in their role and their business decisions. Implementation of our Global Health & Safety Management Systems continues throughout all Group businesses and we have targeted a 5% year-on-year improvement in our safety metrics. In 2016, we surpassed that targeted improvement with an advance of 9%.
We also recognise that there are other factors that can impact upon employee wellbeing and at Kerry we aim to support our colleagues in leading healthy, active lifestyles. Across the Group, we support a range of initiatives at site level to encourage people to become more active, to improve their diet and to pay greater attention to their health and wellbeing.
Kerry Group International Soccer Tournament
This year we celebrate Kerry’s 21st International Soccer Tournament, where we bring together teams from around the world in the spirit of health, sport and collaboration. The soccer tournament is played at the home of our headquarters in Tralee, Co. Kerry in Southwest Ireland and represents one of the many workplace initiatives we run throughout the year to encourage people to lead more healthy and active lifestyles while having fun with colleagues. Last year we welcomed almost 300 colleagues to the event from all across our business and we look forward to growing the tournament even further in 2017.
