Diversity and Inclusion
In early 2020, Garfield Bowen was leading global R&D operations and project management for one of 3M’s largest divisions when he got a call from the chief human resources officer – a call that would completely change his career trajectory. A leadership position had been created to advance more of the company’s equity initiatives and they wanted to know if he would like to be considered. “I took some time to think about it because the emotions of the time were raw and real,” Garfield said. “I wanted to make sure that the company was really serious about doing this work and that this was something I could see myself getting behind to make a difference because I have a bias for action. If the company wasn’t serious about action, then I wouldn’t be the right candidate.”

Diversity and Inclusion
During his 33-year tenure at 3M, Global Diversity and Inclusion Strategist Scott Morris has never been more excited to be a part of a company and movement that is helping affect people’s lives. It’s that excitement, mixed with his incredible passion and leadership, that has led to some of 3M’s biggest equitable actions in the past year. “This is a defining time for all companies and 3M is no different in that respect,” Scott said. This is an opportunity for us to shape what we’re going to be for the next 100 years.”

I currently work for 3M but have applied for an HR Manager (potentially VP) position at a local community bank. Any insights into salary expectations for a HR Manager/VP position at a midwestern bank employing approximately 100 people? I'm bracing for it to be quite a bit less than my current salary.

    There is a strong belief in innovation and employees are given a lot of flexibility to make a difference. Total compensation is very good It is a collaborative environment


    A large amount of overhead & meetings searching for consensus Some decision makers are too disconnected from the day to day reality

      Disfuncional interview process with terrible follow up from the company. Vague responses to interviewees questions but expect extremely detailed responses to their questions. I would not recommend even wasting your time trying to get a job here.

      Do you think you are good fit for this position.
