Nurturing and developing the people who make up the “McCormick family” has always been a top Company priority. McCormick’s culture is founded on a participative style of management that encourages the active involvement of all employees in community service activities as well as at all levels of the business. At the core of the culture is a set of Shared Values, one of which is an unwavering concern for others and respect for the dignity of the individual.
McCormick’s global employee population is diverse. In the U.S. the McCormick Corporate Diversity Council establishes Company diversity initiatives, promotes diversity training and sponsors educational diversity events. The Company is a proud recipient of two James Rouse Diversity Awards.
For over 75 years the Company has offered employees a system of professional development, called Multiple Management. Each of the 13 global Multiple Management Boards allows its members the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to the business while developing their own career skills.
McCormick believes in lifelong learning and offers many internal learning and development opportunities to employees. The Company has two Learning & Development Centers (one in Maryland and one in the U.K.) which house central resources for business information and courses for skills development, career development and change management.
For employees who choose to take continuing education courses, in the U.S. McCormick provides an educational tuition assistance program. In addition, the Company sponsors a number of scholarships for colleges and trade school educations for children of employees.
The Company takes a leadership role in the health and safety of its employees. A full range of programs has been developed to promote safety in the workplace and good health habits among employees.
