Mission: We make everyday life better, every day.
A decade ago, we became the first major CPG company to offer voluntary online ingredient disclosure for our U.S. and Canadian cleaning, disinfecting and laundry products. Today, our chief innovation officer, Denise Garner, talks about our latest ingredient transparency initiative. We’ve committed to listing ingredients on the labels of all our U.S. household cleaning products — beyond those required by a new California law — making it even easier for consumers to know what’s inside their favorite products.
The East Oakland Youth Development Center opened its doors in 1978 to empower and inspire young people in Oakland, California. After 40 years, we are proud of our continued partnership and congratulate EOYDC on the impact it has made in the lives of so many in the Oakland community. Read the blog to learn more.
One voice can make a positive difference in the lives of millions. One idea can inspire people for generations to come. At Clorox, the opportunity is yours. We’ve achieved success for more than 100 years by giving our professionals the resources to do their best. As part of our team, you’ll be empowered to lead, to delight customers, and to help make everyday life better, every day.
At Clorox, we're constantly challenging ourselves to improve our performance and stay ahead of the competition.
Our four corporate values say it all about how we do business at home and around the globe.
The long-term health of our company depends on our integrity, on the way we treat the environment and on always upholding the high standards and ethics that Clorox is built upon.
Our success is measured by our ability to win in the marketplace. Setting high expectations, pushing beyond the ordinary and creating innovative solutions are some of the ways we stretch for results
Progress is driven by those who own their results and strive to make the process of achieving those results as fast, simple and effective as possible. We believe each of us has a part in ensuring our company delivers excellent results and meets our goals.
Success depends on productive collaboration among Clorox employees and with our business partners. While individual ownership and contributions make a difference, teamwork is equally important to achieving great results.
We offer a broad range of competitive benefits to help employees meet their long-term financial goals, while balancing the demands of work and personal life. Benefits are available to full-time employees and their dependents, including children, spouses and same-sex partners. Here are a few ways we support our employees' health, wealth and more.
We offer comprehensive healthcare coverage and many wellness programs, including:
We offer insurance coverage in a range of areas including life, accidental death and dismemberment, disability, business-travel accident insurance and long-term care.
401(k) plan with auto-enrollment: This plan allows employees to set aside part of their current income on a pretax basis every month immediately upon hire. After one year of service, employees are eligible for the company contributions which consist of:
... And More
Rewards & Recognition
Our Bravo* incentive compensation program rewards all employees for supporting the company's goals. This non-monetary peer-to-peer recognition program empowers individuals to reward the efforts and achievements of their colleagues by assigning them points that are redeemable for a wide variety of rewards.
*Program available only to U.S. employees.
We want Clorox people to succeed. That's why we offer development opportunities to help our employees make the most of their job today, while paving the way for ongoing career growth.
We're focused on helping our employees excel because we see it as an investment in our business and our future. Professional growth is a shared responsibility at Clorox, and employees work hand in hand with their managers to pursue individual development plans. These plans build capabilities through a mix of development experiences, relationships, on-the-job learning, classroom-based training and e-learning.
We also believe that helping to shape our current and future leaders is critical to our company's success. To that end, our Diamond Leadership Institute provides leadership development opportunities for different segments of our company. Clorox executives often take part in these programs, teaching and offering participants unique and challenging experiences.
At Clorox, we value and encourage differences. We've found that new ideas for growth bloom when employees have the freedom to express their unique points of view.
Driving Growth & Innovation
Today's global marketplace requires diverse thinking and a leadership team with a variety of world views, experiences and thought processes. It also requires an environment where employees are encouraged to share their unique points of view. Only by tapping into our diversity of thought can we innovate, drive competitive advantage and win in a multicultural marketplace.
Connecting Through Employee Resource Groups
Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) help our employees connect with each other. Plus they also serve as vital internal focus groups. Our ERGs inspire product innovations, accelerate product placement plans and deepen our understanding of the multicultural marketplace.
Clorox ERGs partner with our multicultural marketing teams to uphold our business strategy. Our ERGs also provide career-advancement forums to help us learn, grow and engage with one another. Here's a taste of what else our ERGs have been up to:
Our Asian ERG was recently recognized as a "best practice" for its "IdeAsian" workshop, where speakers shared innovative approaches to address three business challenges: Asian consumer marketing, insights and needs of the U.S. Asian community, and product and packaging for Clorox brands
Our African Americans Building Leadership Excellence (ABLE) ERG is connecting brands Kingsford® and K C Masterpiece® with African American consumer insights.
The Latinos for Excellence, Advancement & Development (LEAD) ERG is partnering with our Multicultural marketing teams, engaging in retail store visits and staying active with Hispanic industry trade associations like the Mexican American Grocers Association.
Pride — Clorox's GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender) and advocates ERG — hosted a "Gaynovent" workshop to highlight business insights about the growing GLBT consumer segment. This event gave employees a chance to learn more about the GLBT consumer and demonstrated how ideas from Clorox employees can drive business growth for the company.
The Support, Heart & Opportunity for Women (SHOW) ERGpartners with industry groups like the Network of Executive Women (NEW) to connect employees to retail customers, suppliers, industry peers and each other. In just three years, Clorox has grown with NEW to include more than 175 members across the U.S. and Canada.

Clear vision and strategy from leadership
Employees are empowered to drive there own career development and to improve there work
Pay is not on par with Bay Area wages/cost of living
Takes to long for decision to be made (slow corporate processes)
