PODCAST: Unilever Provides Careers with Purpose for Veterans
Orion has proudly partnered with Unilever, one of the world’s largest consumer goods companies, to provide rewarding career opportunities for veterans. Unilever makes thousands of products under more than 400 brand names including Dove, Axe, Suave, Hellman's, Lipton, Ben & Jerry's, and many more.
Unilever provides its employees with many attractive benefits, from flexible work schedules and paid parental leave to tuition and fitness program reimbursement. “Unilever is very accommodating of your work/life balance and making sure you can handle everything that’s thrown at you,” explains Mike Stevens, a Marine Corps Veteran and Associate Finance Manager at Unilever.
Unilever’s leadership plays a vital role in ensuring that everyone is valued, included, and brings his or her personal passion into the workplace. The company encourages employees to shape their own career path by offering mentorship and development opportunities along the way. Mike was hired as a Demand Planning Manager two years ago and has recently transitioned into a role in Finance, allowing him to explore another side of Unilever’s business. Having the opportunity to pursue a different career is one of the perks that Mike enjoys most about his job. “You’d be hard pressed to find a manager in this company that doesn’t have your career progression in mind. We meet frequently and have conversations with our managers about how things are going, short term plans, long term plans, and how we can get there.”
Check out the podcast to hear the rest of Mike’s journey, from military transition through the second year of his career at Unilever. Mike discusses what attracted him to Unilever, his career progression since joining the company, and what he enjoys most about working there
