Diversity & Inclusion

At Newell Brands, we embrace diversity and inclusion and value a culture where employees can bring their whole selves to work while being recognized and rewarded for high performance. We believe that our workforce should be as diverse as the consumers we serve and the communities in which we operate. Accordingly, we leverage the skills and perspectives of the wealth of backgrounds of our team members to make a difference for our consumers around the world. 

We're proud to have been recognized on the Forbes list of Best Employers for Women in 2023 and Newsweek's America's Greatest Workplaces for Diversity in 2024, and to have earned a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation's Corporate Equality Index.

Talent Engagement & Development

As we build a culture focused on high performance, inclusion and innovation, we are enhancing opportunities for our people to develop as professionals. Employees can gain the skills and knowledge needed to excel in their roles and contribute meaningfully to Newell’s success through targeted training programs, workshops, and other learning and development initiatives.

For example, Brand Management University is offered to accelerate brand management training and support the global brand management model for employees in the marketing and innovation functions. The curriculum includes Brand Management Foundations, Innovation Claims Training and Gen Z Marketing. Our Training & Development team also offers general leadership and skills training. Our Leadership Exploration and Development (LEAD) series provides resources for developing leadership skills and managerial capabilities.

Employee Wellbeing

Fostering and retaining a high-performing workforce goes beyond professional development and training opportunities. It requires supporting employees holistically through their mental health and wellbeing so they can thrive personally and professionally. By providing programs and resources that support overall wellness, employees can feel valued and supported in various aspects of their lives, contributing to greater job satisfaction, productivity and sustained long-term success.

Our Benefits Offerings

We take a comprehensive, total rewards approach to employee benefits, including market-driven, insurance and wellness offerings to support all aspects of employee health.
