Inclusive Workforce

Diversity & Inclusion

Our Collaborative Workforce

Working toward a more inclusive world.

The goals of our 2030 Global Social Responsibility Strategy are within reach because of a dedicated, engaged, inclusive and collaborative workforce.

We know that our ambition is achievable only if we rely on the unique ideas, perspectives and backgrounds of our talented people around the world – and support an environment where that diversity can thrive. We take pride in the progress we’ve made with the knowledge that we still have ambitious work to do.

"Diversity and inclusion are essential for achieving our vision, fulfilling our purpose and being a sustainable company where the most talented people can thrive. A culture that doesn’t embrace people who look, think and act differently will simply not get to the best solution or results."

To be engaged, you must feel included and valued. We strive to build and nurture a culture where inclusiveness is a reflex, not an initiative. Where there is a deep sense of pride, passion and belonging that transcends any role, business unit, language or country and is unified in our shared commitment to excellence, innovation and social responsibility. We know through experience that different ideas, perspectives and backgrounds create a stronger and more creative work environment that delivers better results. To support an inclusive environment where employees feel empowered to share their experiences and ideas, we’ve encouraged the creation of a variety of Employee Resource Groups, including groups for Women, Veterans, LGTBQ (Pride & Allies), African Ancestry, Developing Professionals and more.


As an early adopter of Workplace, Facebook’s social media platform inside organizations, Stanley Black & Decker has enjoyed enhanced communication and collaboration with employees around the world. From closing language gaps to bridging location distance to accelerating productivity, we are connected like never before – creating a more informed and engaged leadership team and workforce. And we’re measuring employee engagement in meaningful ways as well, assessing it at the team level through our partnership with Gallup and working with leaders to support the needs of a highly engaged workforce. We want an environment where employees feel valued, heard and positioned to do their best work every day.


A healthy workforce is a thriving workforce, and we encourage and help our employees to be the best versions of themselves they can be. Through our “Healthy for Life” program and other initiatives, we provide resources to help employees take care of their physical, financial, emotional and work well-being. And we support employees at all levels of the organization in developing their capabilities and careers.


Guided by our purpose of being For Those Who Make The World, our employees bring to life our important values of Courage, Innovation, Agility, Performance, Inclusivity, Collaboration, Integrity and Accountability each and every day.  From bravely innovating without boundaries to collaborating to amplify customer value, the people of Stanley Black & Decker are bold and agile, yet thoughtful and disciplined. We operate with transparency, positive intent and the highest ethical standards to build trusted relationships.
