Vaccination & Future of Work Expectations

Our highest priority is always the health and safety of our Kraft Heinz family.

This will enable our transition to hybrid work while maximizing the wellbeing of our entire team.

We believe the office is a critical driver of innovation, connection and development, but also realize providing more flexibility to our employees is critical in this new world. Starting in January 2022, the majority of our salaried employees will be able to work virtually for up to two days each week to create a more agile and modern workplace. Some jobs may be required to be performed fully in person depending a role’s responsibilities and requirements.
