Workforce Diversity

At Ingersoll Rand, we believe that fostering a progressive, diverse and inclusive environment enables us to improve our performance and products, enhance the communities where we live and work, and enrich the lives of our employees. As a global company, we are strengthened by the diverse perspectives, cultures and experiences of our people, and we support their personal and professional growth as their ideas become the innovative products and solutions of the future.

Our approach for managing diversity, human rights, affirmative action and equal employment opportunity is embodied in company policies and our Code of Conduct.


Michael Lamach

"At Ingersoll Rand, we know that companies don't transform exciting concepts into true innovation – people do. A focus on hiring and retaining a diverse workforce is fundamental to our growth and success as a world leader in providing safety, comfort and efficiency.

Through our emphasis on diversity, we seek individuals whose life, work and cultural experiences deliver the know-how and insight that deliver breakthrough customer solutions. By bringing together people from various backgrounds, we can engage in thoughtful decision-making and unleash exciting ideas.As part of a global company, employees have opportunities to work in various regions and across our sectors, which enhances their capability to identify ways to serve our highly diverse customers. At the same time, our people are afforded the chance to work with and learn from people who represent a broad range of skills, traits and perspectives.

As an employer, what differentiates Ingersoll Rand is our ability to marshal individual strengths into comprehensive solutions that exceed our customers' expectations. That's a key reason why we are a 100-year-old company that continues to inspire progress every day."

Mike Lamach, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

"At Ingersoll Rand, progress truly begins with each employee. That's why we strive to promote an environment that values and appreciates a wide variety of experiences, attitudes and ideas. With employees working in well over 100 countries, our people represent a broad, global perspective that enriches everything we do. Our ability to continually rethink, improve and innovate enables us to inspire progress for our customers so they can deliver business results.

While our people come to us from many different backgrounds and possess unique points of view, they share one common trait: the commitment to achieving high performance. As an inclusive organization, Ingersoll Rand invites people to share their views, leverage their expertise and, at the same time, welcome and embrace one another's suggestions and ideas. Collaboration frees everyone to do their best thinking and, as a result, achieve their best results. That's just one of the reasons that Ingersoll Rand is such a great place to work."

Marcia J. Avedon, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, Communications and Corporate Affairs
