Our People

We label bottles, not people

Inclusion, diversity and equity sits at the heart of our people strategy. We are fostering a culture where everyone's welcome to be themselves, be valued and belong. Our business thrives on the diversity that comes from all our people and a broad range of perspectives and backgrounds.

We want to develop a culture at CCEP with inclusion and diversity at its core. This requires real change throughout the company. We are making progress but we need to do more in our workplace and our communities.

Culture and heritage

We are committed to advancing individuals from underrepresented ethnic groups, with particular focus on increasing representation of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups in Europe. We are doing this by ensuring access to development and growth opportunities, promoting authentic and sustained conversations about race to foster inclusion. We are also determined to make a positive difference by promoting economic development in our local communities, many of which face significant social challenges, including high levels of youth unemployment and social exclusion.

Disability inclusion

Disability inclusion

We want our workforce to reflect the communities we serve. In 2022, we set an industry-leading target to ensure 10% of our workforce is represented by people with disabilities by 2030.  A year on, we have already exceeded our target, with 12.6% of the workforce made up of people who have shared their disability status with us. We’re also signatories to the Valuable 500 Pledge and a corporate partner with the Business Disability Forum.

We’ve also launched an expanded Global Disability Pledge, which includes a range of measures such as investing in disability-awareness learning for all employees and making it easier to get accessibility tools and adjustments so that everyone can perform at their best at work.

Gender Balance

Gender equality

Promoting gender equality and empowering women continues to be a key priority for CCEP. We aim to support women throughout the business and improve the gender balance in our talent pipelines through a range of training programmes and other initiatives. 

LGBT+ CCEP Pride 2019


Coca-Cola has a longstanding commitment of promoting LGBT+ inclusion and acceptance in our communities. At CCEP we are cultivating a workplace that supports and welcomes all lesbian, gay, bi and trans people and respects gender identity and expression.

Multi-generational workplace

Multi-generational workplace

With five generations across our workforce, we are nurturing a respectful environment where people of varied ages work together and learn from each other, without age-based assumptions or stereotyping. We are working to further understand the different generations’ expectations of work and supporting different styles, needs, goals and traits. 

As a result, CCEP has formed a Future Generation Council - a group of young, talented professionals within the business committed to listen, communicate and represent the voice of the next generation.

Commitment from the top

Our Leadership Team is accountable for defining and driving actions to support our underrepresented groups and fostering open and honest dialogue about diversity. Our senior leaders are trained in developing inclusive habits, we utilise tools and training to support people managers and mitigate bias in the workplace.
