    Fall Events in
    Metro NY - Chicago - Miami

    Networking can be challenging and cumbersome but not when you are attending a Kraft Foods Alumni Networking Event. This is like networking at the “Cheer’s Bar, Where Everybody Knows Your Name!” or they know you were with a Kraft Foods or CPG Company. This is the common theme that makes our events way more pleasurable than any other business networking event. By the Way; Kraft Foods Alumni Network is Created By Alums, For Alums!


    Consultants, this is a great opportunity to renew or establish connections that can lead to new business. As a business owner building credible connections is crucial to your success. Alumni Network events are created for helping Alums like you who are in business for themselves. These events are a showcase of the high caliber of talented individuals who worked at Kraft Foods companies, that’s YOU. Join Us, Help Us to continue the evolution of growing the Alumni Network.


    Searching for Talent, Searching for your Next Adventure? Here again is why the Alumni Network was created! Statistics are against you finding great talent in a stack of resumes. Stats are also against you finding your next gigs through an online job board. Alumni Networking events are where you can meet other Alums who may be in transition or Alums who may be looking for Talent to build their teams. Attending events puts you on the top of mind for other Alums who may be able to assist you in a search. Being present is where the magic happens.


    And, just Networking at a great venue, with good people, food and drinks. What a great combination! Developing or reconnecting with others on a personal level never gets old. The Alumni Network provides that common theme for everyone to build upon and take it where you want. Looking to share ideas, get input on new business, mentor, advisor, etc. These are all things you can offer to the Alumni Network. What you get from Networking, is always a by-product of what you give!


    We are not just a LinkedIn group, where you have a collection of electronic business connections. We are an ACTIVE Network! Networking events is one of many ways we distinguish ourselves from online communities. Attending events is where you get the full meaning and power of this Network. Join us, engage us, evolve with us!

    The global companies that make our food, snacks, beauty products and other consumer staples are ripe for more corporate takeover tussles. Expect locally based Kraft Heinz and Mondelez International to be part of the fray.

    Right now, Wall Street's focus is on shareholder activist Nelson Peltz's proxy battle to win a seat on the board of Procter & Gamble, the global marketer of Tide, Charmin, Pampers, Gillette razors and other household names.

If you are aware of any job opportunities for the people impacted by the Madison Plant closing please share them here on this LinkedIn message or via the Kraft Foods Alumni Network: www.kraftfoodsalumni.com or kraftfoodsalumni@gmail.com. We will be posting jobs and job transition information on our website within the next week. Stay tuned. Kraft Foods Alumni Network is Created By ALUMs for ALUMs! https://lnkd.in/epiCKfA

    Some very impressive companies have announced that they are moving away from annual performance evaluations of their employees. The rationales given for this radical departure from the past are often based on aspirational statements linked to company values, recruiting and hiring the best and brightest as well as constant feedback from the manager to the employee. In other words, the assumption is that a combination of “real time feedback” and self-motivated employees will thrive in a sort of corporate nirvana. Millennials, we are told, crave and want feedback and mentoring from their managers. Can and would the elimination of the oft-maligned annual performance appraisal deliver on its implied promises? Admittedly, the old-school practice of annual performance appraisals has some major drawbacks and inherent flaws.
