Springdale, Arkansas-based Tyson Foods has shared new changes and investments aimed at increasing U.S. team members relationships and enhancing workplace culture.

Tyson Foods has invested more than $20 million this year to offer longer parental leave, additional mental health support and other wellness and health plan benefits to further enhance employee well-being as part of the company’s culture. The company increased its parental leave program to include eight weeks paid leave for mothers and two weeks paid leave for U.S. team members to provide bonding time with their new family member.

The company’s new policies and investments are in addition to recent compensation benefits. Tyson recently announced it invested more than $50 million in thank you bonuses and gave $100 million in wage increases for U.S. hourly workers over the past year.

“This is yet another step that Tyson Foods is taking to show how we align our actions with our values and prioritize the health and well-being of our team members,” said Johanna Soderstrom, chief people officer.

“The new offerings reinforce our commitment to ensuring we offer equitable and market competitive programs to our team members and align with our vision to become the most sought-after place to work.”

This spring, employees will also have access to a personalized well-being portal to help manage their health and well-being. The feature includes physical, emotional, financial and social well-being benefits and resources that team members can access to guide them on their health journey.

In 2022, Tyson expanded Upward Academy to provide free education for U.S. team members. The investment covers 100 percent of all tuition, books and fees and will include access to more than 200 programs from more than 35 universities and learning providers. It is also addressing the barriers of transportation through a ride-share program that provides a low-cost way for employees to commute to work.
