GMCR’s success depends upon the daily efforts of our 5,800 employees. Our culture of collaboration, engagement, and mutual respect fosters excellence, and we focus on hiring and developing talented individuals who share in our Company’s core values. GMCR’s people are passionate and committed, encouraged to be leaders and to take ownership of their work.
Great ideas come from all employees, and our working environment recognizes and rewards the contributions of each individual. As stewards of our Company and its purpose, employees can share collectively in our achievements by working together.
GMCR has seen amazing growth in a very short time. More than 4,300 new employees — or about 75% of our organization — joined us between the beginning of fiscal 2010 and the end of fiscal 2012. Over three decades, we evolved from a small, Vermont-based coffee roaster into a major beverage producer, coffee maker, and innovator, with operations across the U.S. and Canada and a complex supply chain that extends around the world.
