Having highly engaged colleagues is critical to fulfilling our Mission and achieving our vision. It is imperative that they have opportunities to learn, grow and influence our company culture. Through our Practical Process Improvement (PPI) Business System, we enable our colleagues to become problem-solvers and to implement change where they see opportunity or waste.


We do our best to create a positive, fair and safe working environment for our colleagues around the globe—one in which the backgrounds, lifestyles and ideas that make each of our employees unique are valued. This, in turn, leads to innovation and a better outcome for our customers and our business.

Not only do we strive to provide all of our colleagues with a voice, we also do our best to make sure everyone has access to the right resources, programs and internal company networks that will nurture their success. Our talent development and diversity and inclusion (D&I) initiatives help create a global workplace that encourages involvement, helping to ensure that we continue to attract those with cutting-edge thinking critical to fulfilling our Mission.

We believe our 100,000+ colleagues are our greatest asset. We are focused on attracting, developing, and retaining future and existing talent, including those from acquired organizations. We take a deliberate and thoughtful approach that seeks to honor the capabilities and legacy of the incoming business and carefully considers culture as a part of each unique integration process. We are proud of our growing team of colleagues around the world who enable our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer.
