Scope of Grupo Bimbo Well-being Programs

At Grupo Bimbo, we value the Person and we are positive the Safety & Well-being of our associates come first.

For Grupo Bimbo, our Associates’ Well-being focuses on all those initiatives that seek to impact their quality of life. We strive to make the world a better place with everything we do, so we can be a positive force.​​.

Our Well-being programs aim at all our associates, in all our work centers, all our organizations, affiliates and subsidiaries, their different geographies, functions and business areas.

We acknowledge people live in community; therefore, the social aspect is key to improve their health and quality of life. We seek to include our associates’ families into our well-being programs or initiatives as much as possible.

Currently, several of our programs include the family. Among them, high-impact initiatives such as telemedicine programs, or free medical, psychological and/or nutritional assistance for our associates and their families, access to health benefits such as medical insurance, vaccination campaigns, medical exams, sport events (including our Global Race), and health events such as health talks, workshops and fairs. These actions are reported and monitored on an ongoing basis, and we strive to add more each year.

These initiatives have greatly helped us improve our associates’ quality of life. As they become aware their family’s health improved, and they feel our support in these areas, they become confident and secure, thus we strengthen our purpose of Nourishing a better world
