Our Growth Culture:

One of the reasons our company continues to thrive after 130+ years is having a company culture that supports and rewards behaviors that lead to growth. Our "Growth Behaviors," as we call them, are ways of being and working that help to make us successful. Think about how you can bring this to life in your next role at Coca-Cola.

Curious

Always seek. Never settle. We look wider, dig deeper, and think two steps ahead. We challenge the status quo by wondering about things outside of ourselves, our teams, and our company. We empathize with the humans we make products, services, and experiences for - their lives, their needs, and their tensions. This pushes us to create in a way that brings magic to the world. Curiosity in the network is expressed by being human-centric. Having greater attunement and faster response to the need of consumers of our products and services, externally and internally.

Inclusive

Amazing together. We build connections across our network to truly hear one another. We trust each other enough to have creative tension, knowing an essential ingredient to our growth is the diversity of our backgrounds, perspectives, and collective knowledge. We recognize, learn from and elevate one another as we work toward our shared purpose and goals. Inclusiveness in the network means openly sharing and collaborating. For networks to move quickly and get the best results, we need to share information, include, and trust one another.

Empowered

Make it happen. We don't sit and wait for an invitation to contribute-we are co-creators and leaders who say and do what needs to be said and done. We are humble, recognizing we are part of something bigger than ourselves and that the collective interest comes first. We hold ourselves accountable, knowing when to disagree and commit and to trust others to carry a vision forward. Empowerment in the network means feeling accountable, with a bias for action, but always applying lateral thinking and acting on behalf of the enterprise.

Agile

Push for progress, not perfection. We have a bias toward action. We bring people and resources together to carry out our work with real-world-tested approaches. We take risks, seeing failure as an opportunity to learn fast and pivot fast. We embrace common tools and practices across the network, so the knowledge and people can easily move across projects and teams. We work within guidelines but without boundaries. Agility in the network means prioritizing learning fast and taking a more iterative, real-world-tested approach.
