The sustainable Eastman workforce

Eastman team members are our company’s most valuable asset. The commitment of Eastman people to go above and beyond has allowed us to consistently provide value to our customers and stakeholders.

We strive 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 individuals are the foundation for our collective success. We encourage our team members to be good corporate citizens by participating 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 offer various training and professional development opportunities for our teams around the globe. These opportunities focus on building the skills and knowledge of team members through classroom courses, online courses, just-in-time training and other training and development resources.

Eastman invests in training programs that go beyond informal “one-on-one” training. We support the use of formal plans and documented training guides for team members at all of our plant sites around the world. At our largest United States sites, our workforce training programs have been taken to new levels through the implementation of apprenticeship programs that are approved by the United States Department of Labor’s Office of Apprenticeship.

Health and wellness

We place strong emphasis on maintaining the health, safety and well-being of our team members — both at work and at home. We believe sustainability extends to the overall well-being of our global team, which is demonstrated through comprehensive health care plans as well as physical, emotional and financial well-being resources for our team members.
