Building a Diverse Workforce

At JBS USA, diversity is one of our greatest strengths, and we know that the success of our company depends on the collective skills, backgrounds and experiences of our team members. By treating our team members with dignity and respect, and by promoting diversity and inclusion, we strive to create a trusting and productive workplace.

As many as 60 different languages are spoken at any one facility. To ensure that all team members can express themselves and understand key messages, we provide company materials in various languages and dialects. This includes team member information such as benefits, safety instructions and new hire and continuous training materials.
