Mars Ambassador Program (MAP) creates opportunities for Associates to understand the communities that are critical to the Mars business - all while sharing skills that help advance the goals and objectives of their partners. MAP offers Associates a chance to lend their expertise to organizations and communities across their value chain. Participating in MAP is a life-changing experience that connects Associates with communities and enables them to learn about the issues Mars faces as a business, as they develop leadership competencies in real-life situations.



High Performance Collaboration

All people managers at Mars are trained in a signature Mars people practice called HPC which they run with all their team members. When a team practices High Performance Collaboration, the leader aligns the team around a clear sense of purpose that creates the focus a team needs to reach levels of high performance. Based on this focus, individual team members agree to mutual commitments and accountability for collaborative relationships and to key team processes and ways of working. One of the essential practices in HPC is Inspire Purpose. Teams that practice Inspire Purpose create clarity and understanding about the unique value of their collaboration and how it adds value over and above their functional results.

The 5 principles and the Purpose of my organization is followed religiously. For me, this is unique and a strong motivating factor to work with this organization.
