Eastman employees are the company’s most valuable asset. It is their commitment to going above and beyond that has allowed us to consistently provide value to our customers and stakeholders. Eastman seeks to create a workplace that attracts top talent, retains employees with engaging work, embraces differences and encourages all team members to reach their full career potential. We know that individual people are the foundation for our collective success.
We encourage our employees to be good corporate citizens by allowing them to participate in volunteer opportunities in the communities in which they live and work and help them develop leadership skills while giving back.
Training and development
We believe that training and development are cornerstones for building the Eastman of tomorrow. We provide educational resources to attain these skills, such as operator certification training, business ethics courses and global interaction workshops, and evaluate and modify these programs to ensure they effectively meet our employees’ evolving needs. On average, we provide our employees with 70 hours per year of global training opportunities via internal learning channels.
Focus on employee health
We place strong emphasis on maintaining the health, safety and well-being of our employees — both at work and at home. We believe that sustainability extends to the good health of our staff, which is demonstrated through our integrated health program, available for Eastman employees. The program includes access to on-site fitness centers and information and research from Eastman’s personal healthcare team. Personal health representatives are on hand at all times to help employees work through any health issues or questions they may be facing. Our collaborative focus on healthcare has helped numerous employees live healthy lives and prepare for and respond to major life events.
At Eastman, diversity is about capitalizing on differences and similarities for the good of our employees and our business. We value people of different backgrounds, races and cultures. Different points of view enrich our ability to gain insights, generate ideas and deliver value to our customers. Our long-term goal is to achieve a competitive advantage by fostering an environment that allows all employees to contribute to their full potential.
