PRIDE IN WHAT WE DO
Giving back is not just a speech we recite at company meetings. We live it every day. Our long history of helping our communities stems from our founder, Milton Hershey. His success as a businessman enabled him to make a lasting contribution to society by helping those less fortunate. For nearly a century, the Hershey Trust Company has carried out this mission, administering the Milton Hershey School and serving the community of Hershey, Pennsylvania.
Today, our heritage of helping to prepare children for success in life is carried out through Nourishing Minds, our global commitment to providing basic nutrition for kids in need to help them learn and grow. This work is fueled by the creativity, skills and passion of Hershey employees around the world. We know we can make a meaningful difference by using our unique expertise in food production to help children in need focus on their studies rather than their stomachs.
DIVERSITY AT HERSHEY
The foundation for our vision of global growth is a vibrant, diverse workforce. Our eight Business Resource Groups (BRGs) support every employee around the world with an inclusive work environment. We rely on these groups for finding and developing the kinds of talent, skills, knowledge and cultural awareness that will ensure innovation and success for The Hershey Company into the 21st Century. Hershey’s BRG’s include the Abilities First, African American, Asian, genH(Generations), Latino, Prism (LGBTQ and Allies Affinity Group), Veterans and Women’s group.
