The Clorox Company – Why Work With Us?


Mission and Values

Our vision is to be exceptional innovators who earn people’s enduring loyalty. 

How do we do this? By offering high-quality products that consumers trust. By enriching the places we call home through grants that support education, the arts and more as well as encouraging employees to volunteer with area nonprofits. And by donating bleach and other products to communities around the world to help them recover following natural disasters. In short, we strive to “do the right thing” every day.

Culture

What sets us apart from other companies? To start, we’ve always attracted smart, values-driven people who strive to make a positive impact. Add to that a focus on continuous improvement through functional learning and development programs, recognition of the importance of work-life balance, and the opportunity to make an impact every day, and you have ingredients that make Clorox a great place to work.

Inclusion and Diversity

At Clorox, we strive to create a culture of inclusion where you feel a sense of belonging and valued for your unique world view and experiences. In order to win in the marketplace, our people need to reflect the diversity of the consumers we serve. We celebrate our differences so you can feel confident bringing your whole self to work every day.


A Household Name

Did you know The Clorox Company is the company behind Clorox, Glad, Hidden Valley Ranch, Burt’s Bees, Brita, Kingsford, Fresh Step and Rainbow Light brands — and more? Our brands are household names, found in nine of 10 U.S. homes. There’s a reason for that: We deliver superior value and products consumers love and trust.

Delivering Value

Where does the love come from? It comes from delivering outstanding products that support a better world for people and our planet. And it comes from always looking toward the next big thing — which we strive to achieve year-in and year-out. We may be over a hundred years old, but quality and value never go out of style.

Innovating Experiences

We have an unwavering focus on delivering superior consumer experiences by innovating in everything we do. Understanding you and your evolving needs is paramount so we’re constantly investing in our brands to better serve people. It’s what makes Clorox a place you’ll love to work, too.


Our Team

What’s the driving force behind a portfolio of leading brands? At Clorox, it’s our people who help set us apart from the competition. On our team, we’re looking for individuals who bring strong values and varied backgrounds, experiences, skills sets and perspectives. Sound like you? Then we hope you’ll want to learn more about us.

Our Philosophy

At Clorox, we build big brands that earn people’s enduring loyalty.

We try new things — sometimes we succeed, and sometimes we fail, but no matter what we keep learning. We work hard and make time for our personal lives. And we’re all able to make a positive impact — within our company, in our communities and in the lives of millions of people who invite us into their homes. Make your mark and help us drive Good Growth – growth that’s profitable, sustainable and responsible.

Our Organization

Everyone at Clorox can make an impact every day.

We all have the chance to be leaders in our own areas of expertise, contributing our best ideas and making them better through collaboration. Great ideas can come from anyone anywhere, and our culture encourages us to put our personal stamp on our brands & products. With our IGNITE strategy, our goal is to build an even bolder, more inclusive workplace in which we simplify operations, tap technology and move more quickly to drive growth.

Where We Work

Careers Page

Reimagining How We Work

Technology is an important element of our focus on reimagining how we work, one of the integrated strategic choices of our IGNITE strategy.

Our IT team is made up of industry-leading information technology experts who make sure we have what’s necessary to do our best work. We’re more connected than ever before with the right tools to improve efficiency and information security. Through technology, our employees also have the freedom to work remotely outside of the traditional office environment.

Manufacturing Excellence

Technology also plays a key role in our manufacturing processes. Our new Home Care facility in Atlanta, Georgia, for example, features one-of-a-kind, state-of-the-art equipment designed to meet the changing needs of our retailers and consumers.

Superior Consumer Experiences

As a CPG industry leader in digital marketing and e-commerce, we’re using technology to be better brand-builders. By adding human insights to data, analytics and social platforms, we’re able to engage consumers with the right content when and where they want it. Technology also helps us innovate in new ways so we can delight consumers with product features that are more and more in demand.
