The people I work with are collaborative, supportive, and who accept me for who I am. I can honestly say that I have felt like I have belonged here each day of my 14 years at Sargento."

Director of Insights
"When I joined the Sargento Family, I had an infant at the time and my main concern was the work-life balance. I felt welcomed, not only from my team but from other teams including the leadership. Being a part of the founding team for the Multicultural Alliance at Sargento Employee Business Group, really brought to life the belonging aspect here at Sargento."
