Your health and well-being are our priority, and helping you to Live Well is important to us. We are pioneers of workplace health and continue to stay at the forefront with a progressive approach and resources that support your total well-being. As a K-C employee, you can pursue a lifestyle that promotes excellent health, positive energy, balance, and vitality.
We're concerned more with what you do, rather than where and when you do it. There are a number of different flexible work arrangements available at K-C to better manage your commitments inside and outside of work. Simply said, helping you work the way you work best.
At Kimberly-Clark, we know the best way to grow our business is to help our employees develop their careers.
It starts with teaching new employees about our company and our brands and helping them become familiar with networks and resources that can assist their career. Then we coach new team members on the way we do things - including our People Philosophy, culture, values and commitment to diversity.
From there, the doors are wide open for you to grow your career through education, experience and exposure.
Education opportunities abound for Kimberly-Clark employees. There are online and classroom opportunities to develop new skills and build existing abilities. From learning a new language to mastering executive presence to developing your leadership capabilities, you have the power to shape your personal and professional goals at Kimberly-Clark.
As a Kimberly-Clark employee, you also benefit from Exposure through networking groups, volunteer opportunities, and mentoring programs. This helps you learn more about our global organization, build new skills and develop your career.
Experience is one of the best teachers anyone can have. And on the job at Kimberly-Clark, you'll get lots of that. In addition, our employees often gain valuable experience through special assignments, job rotations and other projects.
Across the 61 countries we call home, our company and our employees contribute time, money and products to improve the lives of families - providing disaster relief, protecting the environment, and supporting educational opportunities for the next generation.
Through programs that leverage the power of our brands to partnerships with nonprofit organizations and local communities, Kimberly-Clark aims to help build a better future for families throughout the world. Our global reach gives us tremendous opportunity to improve lives and communities, and we use that power to support causes that consumers care about.
Sustainability is embedded into all aspects of our Kimberly-Clark culture so that our 57,000 employees, global brands and businesses can help make this a better world now and for generations to come. To ensure that Kimberly-Clark is around for another 140 years we recognize we must integrate sustainability across our value chain - from raw material sourcing to designing our products, to manufacturing, to marketing and selling and post-use with all our brands and our businesses.
