Pride of the Jersey – One Inspired Team

Our commitment to cultivating inspired people and inspired food with…a jersey!

Jim Snee, CEO, unveiled a jersey at a recent company presentation that will be used to celebrate the Hormel Foods cultural beliefs and new purpose statement: Inspired People. Inspired Food.™

“This year, we are going to share our pride of our jersey with our fellow teammates all over the world,” Snee said. “This jersey represents all that is great about Hormel Foods and our family of companies. It speaks to our inspired culture of incredibly motivated and dedicated employees, and all that we hope to be in the future.”

Here is how the Pride of the Jersey program works:

Traveling jersey: One jersey will travel to each company location around the world. Each location will receive the jersey for one week and will celebrate and demonstrate how they are living out the company’s cultural beliefs and purpose at their location and in the community when they receive it. These celebration stories will be featured on the company’s website

Location jerseys: Each company location will receive a jersey of their own that they will keep throughout the year to present to an inspiring employee each week.

“We look forward to seeing the cultural beliefs and our purpose statement come to life through our employees this year,” Snee said.

Hormel Foods will also share updates about the jersey journey and stories of the company’s inspired people on its social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram.

We’ve published the locations and a list of all of the Pride of the Jersey recipients.
