We are proud to join the Romanian Diversity Charter, strengthening our commitment to grow and take care of our people, whilst building a workplace that is equitable, diverse, and inclusive. ED & I has been for a long time now a vital topic on our People agenda, and our promise is to make sure that everyone has a seat at the table.
Kellogg’s Romania is a global business service and has almost 350 colleagues in the Bucharest center We’ve taken great strides in recent years to turn our organisation into a great working experience, while building an inclusive and rewarding culture. This includes the introduction of flexible working schedules, the multiple benefits that we offer, and career development opportunities for everyone.
We are part of a global company; we provide services for many different countries and cultures, and we have different nationalities working here, in our Romanian center. So, we thrive in a multicultural environment, and we love and celebrate our diversity in all its forms.
And we are happy to sign this pledge in the month of March, a month dedicated to women, because for us it’s even more special as it’s been 1 year since we’ve implemented the women support policies. We were happy to be the first company in Romania introducing in 2022, the paid days for pregnancy loss, fertility treatments ad menopause. This too is another reflection of how we understand to take care of our colleagues, not only for them as employees, but for everything that they are from a holistic perspective (physical, mental, emotional, financial etc).
Our efforts to make Kellogg’s a great working experience have been recognized and we are extremely proud to have been certified for the first time, in 2023, with the Top Employer certification.
Our journey continues and we are determined to continue building on our successes, constantly finding new practices that can make Kellogg an employer of choice.

About the Romanian Diversity Charter
The official launch of the Romanian Diversity Charter took place on 18 April 2018, Romania thus becoming the 21st country in the European Union with a Diversity Charter and benefiting from the membership in the European Diversity Platform. Today, the Charter brings together 195 signatories, covering approx. 260.000 employees from companies, public institutions and NGOs, who have publicly assumed the principles of the Charter, so that diversity, equal opportunities and social inclusion become values acknowledged and respected in Romania. Under the auspices of the Romanian Diversity Charter, several initiatives have taken place (experience exchanges, workshops, seminars, debates, task forces, learning and mentorship programs) where different practices and organizational policies of diversity management were presented, analyzed, debated and disseminated. Since 2021 the Charter and its signatories celebrate together the EU Diversity Month to promote diversity in the workplace and in society. More information at https://www.cartadiversitatii.ro
