Taking Care of Our Employees
To achieve our vision of being the best food company in the world, we understand that it is essential to take care of our employees to retain, acquire, and empower the best human resources.
Our materiality assessment helped us to identify that diversity and inclusion, employee fulfillment, and employee health and wellness are high-priority topics that are summarized under the ‘taking care of our employee’s section’ of the report.
In this our inaugural report, we will highlight recent accomplishments in the past few years and look to the future as to how we can continuously improve. Below is a brief snapshot of some of the highlights in the upcoming section, along with the goals we have defined.

Our Covid-19 Commitment
Throughout 2020 we were told to stay home to stay safe. As an essential service, it’s our job to help feed the world and many of our employees could not stay home. At HyLife, we took the responsibility of being an essential service seriously. We committed to fighting together as a company against Covid-19.
- To our employees – to keep our teams safe while they support their families and our communities.
- To our customers – to provide a safe and secure food supply for the communities we serve.
- To our animals – to provide them with the essentials for a quality life.
- To our communities – to ensure we supported the safety of the communities we operate in.
From the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, guided by our team of medical professionals, we developed and implemented effective preventative measures across the company to meet our responsibility of taking care of our employees, our customers, our animals, and our communities. As the Covid-19 pandemic changed and progressed throughout the year, we continually adjusted and improved our measures and adapted our approach.
