Our values are our compass. They guide every decision and can’t be compromised, and reflect that our people and their behaviors matter.
Nothing is worth making if those who make it and those who consume it aren’t safe.
Safety is always on your mind. You call out unsafe behaviors and processes.
You follow your safety training to the letter and you don’t tolerate anyone cutting corners. You ask for help when you need it. You proactively identify and share opportunities for enhanced safety in your work environment.
Strive to succeed as a collaborative, inclusive and diverse team.
You seek what is best for Bob Evans Farms. You’re open to others’ ideas. You consider how best to engage teammates and enable their contributions. You see your coworkers for who they are. You seek out diverse perspectives and invite feedback to help improve the outcome.
Act appropriately and with good intentions. Make decisions with integrity.
You are honest and act with integrity. You are mindful of how you speak to others and share feedback in a productive manner. You are quick to admit mistakes and work to correct them. If you say you’ll do something, you do it. You make the right choice even when it’s hard.
Challenge the status quo and have the courage to adapt to change.
You share your ideas, even if they are controversial or go against established norms. You make tough decisions when needed. You know when you need help and aren’t afraid to ask for it. You are not afraid to fail and try different approaches until you succeed. You are flexible when presented with changes in processes, procedures or goals. You question actions that are inconsistent with our values, regardless of title.
Do better than our competitors and be accountable for results.
You push yourself to accomplish important work and exceed goals. You demonstrate consistently strong performance that sets a standard for others to follow. You share your ideas to improve your workplace. You take responsibility for your work and your results, and constantly strive to improve. You hold other employees accountable for doing their respective parts to drive strong results.
At Bob Evans Farms, our brand and business focus on people; those who consume and make our products, along with the communities in which we operate and serve. Our work environment and culture reinforce that ALL our employees and their behaviors matter; that they can come, stay and contribute their very best work. Doing so positions us as both a brand leader and employer–of–choice.
To ensure our success, best practices in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion will be integrated into all we do–at all levels of the organization, across every facility and community we work in and support. We believe Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are enabling business strategies and practices that will lead to better performance, stronger innovation and deeper connections between our employees, suppliers, communities and consumers.
Each of us shares the responsibility to foster an environment and build a culture that embraces our differences. Collectively, they inspire how we operate and leverage the diverse ideas, experiences and perspectives of every employee and partner. The things we do together on this journey will be what set us apart from our competitors and allow us to truly win together in market.
