Our Culture

For those who make a difference

The diverse, purpose-driven people of Stanley Black & Decker share a unified passion for creating products, tools and solutions for those who make the world. Wherever you go in our company, you’ll find uncompromised devotion to performance, innovation, customer satisfaction and social responsibility.

We outperform expectations. It starts with being empowered and accountable—and maintaining the highest standards in everything we do, every day. Our people operate with a sense of urgency that stretches beyond what’s expected.

We innovate to win. To reach our aggressive performance goals and stay ahead of the curve, we push for constant innovation and positive change. We are bold and agile, yet thoughtful and disciplined—exploring without limits and pushing to cross the finish line first.

We develop and reward our people to deliver top performance. A world-class company can’t win without world-class talent. And that talent demands a culture where innovation can thrive and breakthrough performance and ideas are fostered, recognized and rewarded.

We use power(ful) tools. From STANLEY Fulfillment System (SFS) for operational excellence to our Digital Accelerator group to enable digital transformation to Workplace by Facebook for social collaboration, we equip our teams with leading-edge, contemporary work tools and practices.

We respect and embrace differences. Diverse voices and experiences are the heartbeat of our workforce. We have made a commitment to foster a culture of diversity and inclusion, where all our people feel valued and empowered to innovate and grow. We have employee resource groups—organized around ethnic diversity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical ability, veteran status and generation—across more than twenty locations, each helping to keep employees engaged and excited to collaborate by providing networking opportunities, improving representation across the business, and promoting career advancement.

We make positive changes in the world. We prove our commitment to a sustainable world every day—by being a force for change where we work and live and holding ourselves and our suppliers to high standards in three vital aspects of doing business: people, product, and planet.
