NIKE – Why Work For Us?


NIKE, Inc. fosters a culture of invention. We create products, services and experiences for today’s athlete while solving problems for the next generation.

Our mission — to bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world — drives us to encourage every person to reach their full potential, whether it’s on the track, field or court, at work or at home. We strive to help people be active and engaged, fully participating in the world around them. 

What’s good for our consumers is also good for our employees and our communities. We believe that investing in our employees and communities is essential to achieving our ambitious growth and innovation agenda. 

We are a place to explore potential, obliterate boundaries, and push out the edges of what can be.


Nike is already one of the world’s most imaginative and driven teams, where we value the unique backgrounds and experiences everyone brings and want all who join us to realize their full potential.

We believe breakthrough innovations happen when teams are inclusive and diverse. To serve every athlete individually and completely, across hundreds of countries where we do business, we need teams that reflect the diversity of our consumers and a culture of inclusivity that respects the communities in which we live and work.

We’ve found that our best ideas come when we bring different perspectives together and are committed to fostering a workplace that is increasingly diverse and inclusive. To accelerate our efforts, we are strengthening our recruitment, retention and promotion of diverse talent throughout the world, with the goal of reflecting the diversity of the consumers we serve and communities where we live and work.

Nike has eight Employee Networks, collectively known as NikeUNITED. These employee-formed and managed communities offer resources to a diverse spectrum of individuals across Nike. All employees are welcome and encouraged to join, participate or become leaders within the Networks.

Our NikeUNITED Networks bring together employees and allies who represent the unique experiences, perspectives and ideas of our diverse global employee team. Networks serve to advance the development of their members, promote Nike cultural awareness and demonstrate our commitment to diversity and inclusion in the communities where we live and work.

NikeUNITED Employee Networks:

  • Ability & Friends Network
  • Asia Pacific & Friends Network
  • Black Employee & Friends Network (BEN)
  • Latino & Friends Network
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender & Friends Network
  • Native American & Friends Network
  • Nike Military Veterans Network
  • Women of Nike

Nike Recognized as Best Place to Work for LGBT Equality

Nike earns perfect score on Human Rights Campaign Foundations’ 2017 Corporate Equality Index.

Nike is committed to creating positive social change around the world. We help kids get active, so they can have healthier, happier and more successful lives. We bring inspiration to the communities where we live, work and play. We engage our passionate and creative employees to amplify our impact. We work with global partners to tackle some of the biggest challenges in the world today.

Nike provides employees with the opportunity to stay fit, ensure the wellness of their families, and create a positive working environment. That is why every geography provides for variable health coverage, fitness center memberships, time off, retirement savings, and more.

For example, employees who work at WHQ, in Beaverton, Oregon have access to private running tracks, two state-of-the-art fitness centers and over 25 sports leagues.
