Pigs R US Corporate Profile (is a company that produces ham)
Current Company Vision: Bringing quality meats to family tables everywhere.
Current Mission: We believe that family and tradition matter. Pigs R Us is a family too and because we believe that family matters, it our commitment to put only quality pork products on your kitchen table just as we would our own.
Current Business Philosophy
As one of the largest worldwide producers of pork products it is the goal of PRU to help improve its international sales. It will now look forward two years as change in business strategy is imperative to keep growing. The need for innovation and competitive edge ideas are the focus for the next two years. Sustainability both for profit and planet is foremost in the minds of the leadership. The development of "green" friendly international delivery strategies will be a main emphasis.
Current Corporate Culture
PRU has always considered their employees to be like family. They value their input in the business and seek to empower them whenever they can. The current company culture is a hierarchical with a functional underpinning. The growth of the company and the need for structure and communication to keep the global deadlines has caused the Directors to move towards a collaborative culture. They hope that the family feel of the clan culture will not be lost hence the hybrid.
This company has a functional division structure. However, within each division is a functional structure whose make up is dependent on its purpose. For instance, if the branch is a meat packing plant where slaughter takes place than its decision-making flow will follow the jobs that are part of the slaughter and packing processes. Communication and decision making still flows from top down.
