We're empowering employees to build their skills and careers.

Learning & Development

Our learning and development offerings enable employees to Dare to Do Better Every Day and ‘to learn like an owner.’

Ownerversity is the company’s trusted source for learning for all employees, whether they are attending a live or virtual learning experience or accessing digital resources. Through Ownerversity, employees have access to custom Kraft Heinz training and development materials as well as external learning resources, like LinkedIn Learning and Harvard Business Review. This empowers employees to execute with excellence in their current role, accelerate their learning curve and grow a great career. Ownerversity has learning opportunities for everyone, as represented by our ten academies.

In addition, the Leadership and Culture Academy focuses on leadership development, manager excellence, diversity, inclusion and belonging. It provides opportunities for employees to learn how to live our purpose and values every day.

We furthermore provide nine Functional Academies in order to help facilitate the development of functional capabilities for employees and their teams to thrive in their roles, which also bolsters value to Kraft Heinz. Our Academies include, Finance, IT, Legal, Marketing, Operations, People, Procurement, R&D, and Sales.Since Ownerversity’s inception in 2016, the global and zone learning teams have expanded the Kraft Heinz library to include custom Kraft Heinz learning experiences and curated playlists to help employees find trainings more easily.

In September 2019, we launched the #LearnLikeAnOwner to the entire company and invited employees to join leadership in this movement to encourage a culture of continuous learning, bold creativity and intellectual curiosity. The movement is truly global as anyone can learn anywhere and at any time. Employees not only take time to learn, they also share what they learn with other employees through a Kraft Heinz internal communications platform called KetchApp.

Since the introduction of Ownerversity in 2016, the average learning hours per employee (both salaried and hourly) continues to increase. In 2018 the average learning hours per employee was 17 hours. In 2019 the average learning hours per employee rose to 36 hours.

  • Since 2016, 78,084 employees have had access to Ownerversity.
  • There were 46,551 active employees in Ownerversity in 2019.
