Lion: Leadership, diversity and the importance of great people

Leadership, diversity and the importance of great people.

A company’s values are the operating philosophies that guide its conduct and decision-making processes (both at an organisational and employee level on a day to day basis) as well as its relationship with all of its stakeholders. Used effectively, these values are like a cultural glue that ‘connect’ the team and support a community based on shared goals.


Lion is one of Australasia’s leading beverage and food companies and manufactures some of Australia and New Zealand’s favourite milk, juice, yoghurt, cheese and soy beverages, along with market-leading beer and wine brands.

Lion has a strong focus on building the capabilities of its leaders, who, crucially, can come from every level of the organisation. Employees at all levels of the supply chain are encouraged to step up, share their ideas and help introduce new processes and ways of working that benefit the business and its employees.

'Diversity at Lion is defined as ‘all the ways we are different from each other’.

Building on the foundation of a constructive culture, Lion has a diversity of thought strategy in place.


Lion’s commitment to its people has enabled the organisation to position itself as a leader in the food and beverage industry.
