As a global employer, we are committed to providing market competitive compensation and benefits, maintaining fair labor practices, and ensuring a work environment that reflects our core values and culture everywhere we operate.

Our Workplace Culture

ITW’s nearly 48,000 colleagues around the world thrive in the company’s decentralized, entrepreneurial culture. Our people are well-positioned for success in an environment that empowers them to think and act like entrepreneurs. They experience significant autonomy, a compelling sense of ownership, and a work atmosphere deeply rooted in our core values of Integrity, Respect, Trust, Shared Risk and Simplicity. In our high trust environment, people are accountable and can have a real impact in terms of solving our customers’ most challenging problems and driving business performance.

Our Commitment to Competitive Compensation and Benefits

While specific compensation and benefits vary worldwide and are based on regional practices, we know we must offer market competitive compensation and benefits in order to attract and retain great talent across our global divisions and, in turn, to ensure ITW achieves its full potential. In the U.S., where we employ approximately 16,000 colleagues, we have been particularly focused on providing a comprehensive, competitive benefits package that supports our colleagues’ health and wellness, educational endeavors and financial security. Below are some common features offered to our U.S.-based colleagues:

  • Medical and dental benefits for employees, spouses and dependents
  • Flexible spending accounts for both healthcare and dependent care
  • 401(k) retirement savings program with company matching contributions
  • Paid vacation and holidays
  • Paid parental leave, for both men and women
  • Short-term and long-term disability benefits
  • Wellness programs for employees and spouses
  • Life insurance benefits
  • Education and tuition assistance
  • Employee assistance program
  • $3 for $1 corporate match for qualified charitable giving by our employees
  • Adoption benefits
  • Scholarships to support the academic achievement of employees’ children and dependents pursuing college or skilled trades education

Additionally, we fully support our colleagues’ volunteerism and charitable efforts. We strongly encourage community involvement and offer programs that help our colleagues support the charities they care about most.
