Fostering and Rewarding Success

People choose to work at Cargill for many reasons. Some say it is the respect they feel from their supervisors. Some value the opportunity to make a difference through Cargill’s community-involvement projects. Others like that their ideas are listened to and valued. Whatever the reason, Cargill fosters a recognition culture and supports employees with programs that enhance both their professional and personal lives.

Cargill values the health and well-being of employees and their families, and understands how employees having peace of mind for theirs and their families well-being affects how employees perform during their work hours.

Cargill’s benefit programs are designed to empower employees with choices that meet individual needs and assist with the costs of health care, dental care, life insurance, and numerous other benefit and retirement plans. These programs are intended to foster that peace of mind and are exceptionally competitive in the marketplace as an integral component of a total compensation package.

Cargill’s compensation policy and philosophy is that of being competitive in the external market and rewarding employees for performance that drives long-term value creation. Our compensation programs align performance measures for the corporation, our business units, our teams, and individuals. We foster an open communication environment with employees on the compensation philosophy, program, and practices.

Joining Cargill means a career with endless opportunities for learning and development.

At Cargill, we know that continuous learning, growing, and stretching to meet new challenges is essential to our employees’ career satisfaction and to our business success.

We’re committed to fostering an environment where our employees - with their diverse talents and perspectives - make a strong contribution to Cargill and use the available resources to nurture their growth. We know that how people learn is as diverse as people themselves, so employees choose how best to work toward their goals based on their personal learning style. These opportunities could include on-the-job experiences (projects/development assignments, observation and reflection), learning from others (job shadowing, mentoring and informational interviews), formal training courses (internal/external programs), learning from experiences away from the job (trying a new skill in a volunteer organization), and reading on topics relevant to development objectives.

Performance Management is a framework through which individual and organizational goals are aligned and executed – it’s about creating a road map for individual and organizational success. At Cargill, Performance Management helps create a culture where employees are highly engaged and consistently performing at their fullest potential. The result is a high performing organization giving us a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
