We’re the largest global home appliance manufacturer in the world, but we’re still just a small town company in our hearts. We create products that make millions of people’s lives easier every day, and we’re committed to creating those great products and increasing our value though cutting-edge innovation.

Our products are unique and so is our culture. You may know us from our products, but we’d like for you to know us for who we are. We’re an entrepreneurial company, steeped in traditional values—take a look at our employee value proposition, or our EVP, which defines the characteristics that make us who we are, and gives you a glimpse of what it’s like to work at Whirlpool.

Why Whirlpool - You know our name and have used our products, but do you know who we really are beyond our great products? Get to know Whirlpool at a deeper level—who we are as a company and a community.

We are proud of our long history of innovation and success, and we know it’s been possible because of our personality. We look forward to coming to work every day and being a part of Whirlpool, and we explain why in what we call “8 Reasons to Feel Great About Coming to Work. Even on Mondays.”

We reach a common goal by encouraging individual thought.

We bring our different experiences and backgrounds together to create new solutions that help us stay ahead. This is not accomplished by accident – it is an intentional effort.  Our diversity of thought and our focus on inclusion is a differentiator. 

Our history propels us without being an anchor.

We have a tradition of innovation that inspires excellence. But, yesterday’s success can’t ensure tomorrow’s victories. We will act with urgency on today’s opportunities to maintain our momentum.

We work hard but not alone.

There’s a small company feel here that drives the way we work. Strong personal relationships are a force at Whirlpool that foster collaboration and fuel success. 

Innovation is born out of practicality.

Inspiration (Great ideas) can come from our everyday lives. We think of new ways to solve our customers’ old problems and their future challenges. The size of the solution depends on the need – sometimes even the smallest changes make the biggest difference.

We're proud of our resources, but humble in our work.

We strive for longevity and loyalty in our customers and employees.  We know we are a household name but our pride won’t give way to arrogance.  

Our people build our business, but we build our people.

We make great people even better. Unlocking, nurturing and maximizing talent is fundamental to our success. Your potential is our future.


We work like there's something to prove, but perform like we've won the game.

Winning can lead to complacency, but our competition never rests. Our unwavering focus on continuously improving our products, processes and people allows us to stay ahead. That’s the way we win.

There's no right way to do a wrong thing.

It’s that simple. We have uncompromised ethical standards and our values of Integrity, Respect, Diversity and Inclusion, Teamwork and the Spirit of Winning are the foundation of who we are and how we work.
