Congratulations on becoming a new manager at Mars!We are thrilled to have you here!Why do we have a program called Great Line Management at Mars?Because at Mars, we believe that great People Leadership is a critical element of our culture. In fact, it's part of what makes us Mars, The Essence of Mars.
The Essence of Mars is the core of our shared culture as a family-owned company. We feel it's what makes us a great place to work and sets us up for success. And while we continue to evolve and grow as a company, these three elements are at the heart of who we are, and we want to preserve them: The Five Principles, Associate Concept, and People Leadership. The Five Principles Quality, Responsibility, Mutuality, Efficiency, Freedom. The Five Principles provide a common set of filters to steer us through even the toughest decisions - across geographies, cultures, and generations. Associate Concept The Associate Concept defines the relationship between our business and our people - at Mars we're more than employees; we're Associates. People Leadership At Mars, we have very high expectations of anyone who leads people. People Leadership
The essence of Mars
There are many programs that we offer at Mars that help us provide a unique, compelling experience for Associates. In particular, we have called out five programs that help bring the Essence of Mars to life – no matter where you are in the company. Great Line Management (GLM) is one of these essential programs. As a manager, you are responsible for cultivating the conditions inside our organization to achieve Everyday Greatness. What is Everyday Greatness?
It means genuinely caring about people and being available and ready to help. Sometimes it means stepping out of your comfort zone in order to become a better leader. It requires your time, resources, and attention - every single day.
