Engaging our people and communities
Keurig Green Mountain employees are passionate about their work, enabling the success of our business while helping our Company brew a better world. We hire individuals with a value set that is aligned to our Company’s. Once employed with us, they choose to stay with us because they want to contribute to our purpose, mission, and vision. We aim to actively contribute to communities while empowering our employees to get involved and create positive change in the places where we do business around the world.
Engage 100% of employees to understand our vision and values and present opportunities that allow them to contribute to our targets.
One key way we engage our people is through our volunteerism programs — a cornerstone of our Company’s culture and a meaningful part of their work. Our Community Action For Employees program, better known as CAFE, entitles every full-time Keurig Green Mountain employee to 52 paid volunteer hours each year.
We want to help employees truly understand the full impact of our business — so we take them back to the source — literally. For more than two decades, our Company has sent groups of employees to coffee-farming communities. This experience shows them where our products come from and gives them a deeper connection to the process and the people who are involved at the very earliest stages of our value chain.
Thriving communities support our business — and our business supports local communities. Our employees volunteer their time for a wide range of activities that are meaningful to them, from cleaning up beaches and rivers, to planting gardens, to organizing and distributing food at food banks. Many employees volunteer on projects supported by the Company through community investments and product donations, resulting in multifaceted relationships with local nonprofit organizations.
We offer in-kind donations of brewers and beverages to nonprofit, community, and municipal organizations within our operating regions. We also work closely with food banks to ensure excess inventory goes to good use. To learn more about our eligibility criteria and to request a product donation see links below.

We work to connect our community sponsorships with our employee programs by identifying ways to serve our communities while aligning with the needs of our business. We believe this creates a more holistic experience of service for both our employees and our communities. For questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
