Diversity and inclusion

We value our associates’ diversity and encourage them to leverage their varied life experiences at our company. This includes diversity in terms of gender, sexuality, race, thoughts, interests, languages, beliefs and much more.

Growing careers and making a difference

Our industry leadership is tied to the varied talents, perspectives and experiences of our associates. We encourage associates to take an active role in discussions about our business and our culture. With volunteer opportunities and cross-functional projects, we foster a workplace where everyone feels included. This work allows us to cultivate a diverse and inclusive workplace that reflects the values of the communities in which we operate.

“Society is moving quickly, and we have to change with our consumers. Leveraging the unique life experiences of our associates is a great way for us to build a bridge to an even stronger and more successful ScottsMiracle-Gro.”

Jim Hagedorn, Chairman and CEO
