Promoting inclusion, diversity, equity & allyship

To live our purpose and our values, we must build a workplace where every person can feel respected, valued and fully able to participate in our Clorox community. It means leading by example, at every level within the company, and having the courage and focus to continually challenge ourselves to do and be better.

Striving for diversity isn’t just the right thing to do it’s also crucial for driving business success. Diverse teams that reflect the consumers we serve offer a wealth of unique experiences, perspectives and ideas. They help us learn and adapt to the world around us while also making us more attuned to the needs of our consumers. Fostering an inclusive and equitable environment allows people to be their best selves and do their best work We strive for our processes, programs and opportunities to be fair and to provide equal possible outcomes for every person. We also stand for allyship, because we need every member of our team playing an active role to help achieve our purpose.

For these reasons and more, Clorox will continue working to be a leader in inclusion, diversity, equity and allyship. For the good of our people. For the good of our company. For the good of our communities. And for the good of society.

Ensuring employee safety & well-being

Ensuring employee safety & well-being

Providing a safe working environment for our people is essential. That’s why we invest so heavily in fostering a culture of safety. We also work to provide resources and benefits to support the total well-being of our teammates — physical, financial, mental and emotional. Because nobody can thrive unless they feel secure and healthy in all these aspects.

Supporting professional development

Supporting professional development

Our commitment to employee well-being includes supporting our people’s potential to thrive at work. We also recognize that an engaged and motivated workforce is essential to our success. That’s why we invest in our teammates’ professional development.  

We provide a suite of development programs globally to help our teammates become effective leaders and grow in their career journeys:

  • We offer seven different mentoring programs to develop our talent — enrolling over 970 teammates — for general and more specialized audiences, including a group program designed for our women’s employee resource group members and a group for underrepresented individuals in the workplace.  

  • We offer a suite of training and education for people managers to help them become effective coaches and leaders. And our Manager Central platform offer a one-stop shop for resources and job aids for our leaders. 

  • We offer training programs to all production and non-production teammates, accessible on demand. The Learn & Lead platform offers content in areas such as managing virtually, emotional intelligence and mental health.  

  • In fiscal year 2023, we organized a global Career Week — five days packed with engaging content, panels, mentorship guidance and conversations to guide people on what it means to have a successful career at Clorox and actions they can take to achieve that. 

  • We make it easier for teammates to explore new job opportunities by posting all roles below director level internally in an effort to increase transparency and support career growth at our company. 

  • Our robust annual performance review process for all permanent employees provides feedback and coaching for our teammates in their professional journey and supports our leader succession planning processes to ensure a strong pipeline of talent for key roles. 

  • We have an internal policy that provides clear guidance for nonproduction teammates to establish flexible work plans, in consultation with their managers, that will help them meet their personal and professional obligations.

We implement an ongoing listening strategy to gauge our teammates perceptions of Clorox as a place to work. In fiscal year 2023, we continued to have strong employee engagement of 82%, in line with the 50thpercentile of Fortune 500 companies. Some of the areas of strength identified by teammates included a belief that Clorox is a good place to work, cares about its people’s health and well-being and provides work that is intrinsically motivating.
