“Sonoco’s global leadership team has a great opportunity to leverage our unique culture, dedicated talent and strong asset base to execute our strategy to focus our portfolio and improve performance through foundational improvement in operational and commercial execution.”
"I most enjoy visiting our Sonoco teammates across the globe, communicating the Sonoco mission individually and to teams, and asking for feedback to develop an understanding of what we can do to support our people’s efforts to grow and drive operational improvements in all aspects of our company."
"People Build Businesses. Those are not just words at Sonoco. It is our founding principle, and it is the secret of our success. Sonoco is an incredibly innovative Company. We’ve been around for almost 125 years, but we look very different today than we did even yesterday, and we continue to evolve every single day. The one constant in all of it is our people-first culture. It sets us apart and gives us a distinct competitive advantage, and it is the reason I love this Company."
"We have such a great culture of doing the right thing, striking a balance between what’s good for the business, what’s good for our associates, and good for the environment. We have demonstrated this through many ongoing efforts, including investment in renewable energy, water reduction, responsible management of raw materials and waste, and our efforts around designing for sustainability across our product portfolio."
"I love sharing the great story of Sonoco’s vision of Better Packaging. Better Life. This purpose impacts all aspects of our strategy, from delivering value to our shareholders to positively impacting our communities to developing our employee benefits and programs."
Sonoco's global Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Council sponsors and guides programming and activities designed to foster education, awareness, and communication. It's all part of our commitment to create a diverse workforce, treated equitably in an inclusive environment at Sonoco.
