Tyson Foods has a diverse workforce, with many team members who are recent immigrants to the United States.
Numerous languages are spoken across our processing facilities, with as many as 11 languages spoken at a single plant. This diversity is our strength. Our differences lead to more innovation, better supplier and customer relationships, and a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Equity, inclusion and diversity efforts focus on ensuring that we recruit, develop and retain a diverse group of team members, and that all team members have an opportunity to grow and develop personally and professionally.
Accordingly, we cultivate an inclusive workplace that supports and empowers all team members, regardless of their race, color, national origin, religion, age, disability, genetic information, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran or any other protected status. We are an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer, and our policies comply with all federal, state and local employment laws. Everyone is valued and appreciated for their distinct contributions to the growth and sustainability of our business. This focus extends to our supply chain, through which we work with many minority-owned, veteran- and service-disabled-veteran-owned, and women-owned businesses, as well as Small Business Association (SBA)-certified small businesses.
