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 ITW Culture

ITW’s nearly 45,000 colleagues around the world thrive in the company’s decentralized, entrepreneurial culture. Our people are well-positioned to contribute in an environment that empowers them to think and act like entrepreneurs. They experience significant autonomy, a sense of shared ownership with their colleagues, and a work atmosphere deeply rooted in our core values of Integrity, Respect, Trust, Shared Risk and Simplicity.

Supporting Our Colleagues through Comprehensive 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. In the U.S., where we employ approximately 16,000 colleagues, we continue to focus on providing a comprehensive, competitive benefits package that supports our colleagues’ health and wellness, educational endeavors and financial stability. Below are some common features offered to our U.S.-based colleagues:

  • Medical, dental and vision benefits for employees, spouses and dependents
  • Flexible Spending Accounts for both healthcare and dependent care
  • Health Savings Accounts 
  • Wellness programs for employees and spouses
  • Employee assistance program
  • 401(k) retirement savings program with options to contribute on a pre-tax, Roth or after-tax basis, with company matching contributions
  • Paid vacation and holidays
  • Paid parental leave, for both men and women
  • Adoption benefits
  • Short-term and long-term disability benefits
  • Employee life and AD&D insurance benefits
  • Education and tuition assistance
  • Scholarships to support the academic achievement of employees’ children and dependents pursuing college or skilled trades education

Additionally, we fully support community involvement and volunteerism, and we continue to offer programs that help our colleagues support the charities they care about most, including offering a $3 for $1 corporate match for qualified charitable giving by our U.S. and Canadian colleagues.
