Purpose, culture and values

Celebrating life, every day, everywhere

Guinness Blend

Celebrating life, every day, everywhere.

Our accessible purpose provides a platform for us to be the best we can be at work, at home and in our communities — it’s about celebrating life in its broadest sense. Our purpose goes hand in hand with performance — never one without the other.

Our culture is rooted in a deep sense of our purpose, the personal connections we have to our brands, our relationships with each other and our passion to win in the marketplace.

Our values underpin our business and guide how we work. We are passionate about our customers and consumers and want to be the best. We give each other the freedom to succeed and value each other. Pride is a source of energy for our company and we work hard so we can be proud of what we do.


Your wellbeing

We take great care to make sure skills, hard work and inspired decision-making are celebrated and rewarded. We continuously strive to create attractive reward and benefits packages that support your all-round wellbeing. Everyone here understands the importance of work life balance.

Ultimately, at Diageo, we're a company with a mix of vibrant, motivated people working together to deliver great performance in an environment that allows us to flourish. Walk into any Diageo distillery, brewery or office anywhere in the world and you’ll meet teams of people who are really good at what they do and who enjoy doing it.
