Here are a few examples of how SC Johnson supports its unique company culture:
-- Assistance for families -- In 2007, SC Johnson expanded its Childcare Learning Center, adding 9,600 square feet to ensure that employees' children will not have to be placed on a waiting list to enter the Center. Today the center is a 45,000-square-food facility that provides full-time, part-time and drop-in supervision on all three shifts, as well as education and summer camp programs.
-- Learning opportunities -- for more than 10 years, SC Johnson has partnered with a local technical college to provide on-site courses to employees at its largest global manufacturing site, in Racine, Wisconsin. The initiative has offered 800 classes to date with more than 4,500 enrollments, and has enabled employees to complete associates' degrees, technical diplomas and other certifications.
-- Environmental leadership -- By powering its largest U.S. factory with Green-e certified cogeneration and using wind power for a portion of the electricity of another U.S. plant, SC Johnson gives employees an environmental legacy to be proud of. Plus, SC Johnson uses its patented Greenlist(TM) process to select better and better raw materials for its products. Since 2001, for example, the company has cut more than 61 million pounds of VOCs from the environmental footprint of its products.
-- Support at work -- SC Johnson has five diversity councils designed to ensure an inclusive, engaging work environment. In addition, the company last year launched support groups for Parents of Teens, Parents of Special Needs Children, Elder Care Givers, Single Parents and Mature Workers. The goal of the groups is to serve as resources for co-workers who are seeking guidance, education, or simply peers who can relate to or benefit from similar experiences.
