People & Culture
Our people have been at the heart of our success since our foundation in 1989. Many of our senior managers have been with the company since the early days. At the same time we have continuously brought new talent into the business at all levels and many have made significant contributions to our growth. Since the beginning we have actively developed a culture of leadership and in 2010 Olam was recognised as a Top Global Company for Leaders by Hewitt and Fortune magazine.
We encourage an entrepreneurial culture. At the heart of this are our shared values which we live with conviction and enthusiasm, making them a shared workplace philosophy that we live and breathe daily. These form the catalyst for engaging and applying our latent assets that include our people, processes and the unique product and market knowledge that are at the core of our success.
