Kellogg’s has announced the official opening of its new European headquarters in Ireland.
The cereal and snack giant noted that the new state-of-the-art office – located in the heart of Dublin Airport, at Dublin Airport Central – will see over 300 of Kellogg’s European employees working side by side on domestic and regional operations.
The opening is being celebrated by the employees this week, with a full agenda of activities including an Easter egg hunt with employees’ children, the company added.
David Lawlor, European president of Kellogg’s, said, “After the difficult two years we have all had, this day is long overdue, and I am delighted that our employees are able to gather and celebrate.
“It was also extra special that our office was officially opened by some of our Breakfast Club pupils, as it meant we got to celebrate with them. That was very important to our staff, as we are all really proud of our support of over 900 Breakfast Clubs across Europe – 27 of which are in Ireland.”
‘Locate For Your Day’
Kellogg’s highlighted that it has been in Ireland since 1980, and the long-awaited move to the new European HQ comes as the company looks to enhance its working model for employees across Ireland and throughout its global operations.
Commenting on Kellogg’s new hybrid-working initiative, Sinead Collins, HR director, said, “We are delighted to be able to mark this moment and celebrate together the official opening of our new office and launch our hybrid-working initiative, ‘Locate for Your Day,’ which allows people to take advantage of working both at home and in the office.
“This, coupled with our agile-working initiatives, such as ‘Summer Hours’, which enables an early finish on a Friday during the summer months, provides a real opportunity for a greater work-life balance for our employees.
“While our ways of working will never be the same, we are embracing that at Kellogg and are looking forward to building on the great work carried out by our team here in Ireland in our new, modern, innovative office space,” she added.
