Xylem's approximately 12,500 employees work in more than 350 locations and 45 countries on six continents. But numbers alone don't do justice to the central role our workforce plays in advancing sustainability as a way of life at our company.
The global nature of our employee base gives us a broader perspective about water and other sustainability issues around the world. We're a diverse company by default, but we adhere to hiring and promotion practices that further ensure our offices, factories, engineering centers and executive suites benefit from a wide variety of voices and life experiences.
We can put a million well-intentioned sustainability policies in place, but it's our people that make them something more than words. They are the ones who recycle waste, report code violations, develop energy-saving products, volunteer for Xylem Watermark projects and embody Xylem's values with customers, suppliers and the people in their communities. Our job is to help them fulfill their potential by providing training and recognition, leadership paths and safe workplaces – and most of all, by creating a work environment that inspires them to make a meaningful difference.
