We believe that everyone deserves a workplace that encourages them to grow, learn, contribute and thrive. Putting this belief to practice, we are committed to creating a workplace where you, and all of our associates, can feel a sense of value, purpose and belonging. We set the bar high for ourselves, and for good reason, you.
We collectively mourn the tragic acts of racism and social injustice levied against our black community in the United States and around the world. As human beings and as a society, we cannot be content with the status quo and must address the hard systemic work required to truly eliminate injustices and inequality. As a company, we look to our guiding principles, values and beliefs to help us be a stronger force for positive change in addressing inequality and the advancement of those underserved and discriminated against. The true test is not what we say at this moment, but the real progress we make in the months and years ahead such that this is a truly pivotal moment in history.
We believe in a safe and welcoming environment where hate and discrimination have no place—ever. We believe in nurturing an environment where our associates are accepted, thrive and grow. We believe in fostering creative collaboration between people of different cultures, races, ethnicities, gender, sexual orientation, religions, and subject matter disciplines. We may differ in our individual attributes and beliefs, but we share a passion for the quality work we do and our positive contributions to the communities we serve. We stand together... better lives, better communities... Kohler Strong.
