Nutrition is Everybody’s Business at Nestlé
Key to our success to be recognized as the leading Nutrition, Health and Wellness company is ensuring that we have an internal culture built upon continuous nutrition training.
The aim of the NQ (Nutrition Quotient) Training program is to ensure everyone at Nestlé has a good foundation of nutrition knowledge.
Here in Canada, our NQ training is designed specifically for Canadians. In addition to basic nutrition science, we learn what makes up a healthy, balanced diet based on Canada’s Food Guide. And, we’re proud to announce, all Canadian Nestlé employees have completed the training! With the help of a highly interactive and efficient e-learning program, we covered subjects like carbohydrates, vitamins, antioxidants and protein. Those of us without computer access attended in-class training led by our excellent nutrition team. We were all tested before and after the NQ training to measure our progress. Each of us studied until we mastered the subject.
The success of this training program relies on people taking ownership. Each of us is empowered to apply the NQ learnings in our professional activities every day.
The NQ Training program is an ambitious initiative looking to touch all Nestlé employees around the world. It has already reached nearly 150,000 employees.
