Safety: Our most important obligation to each other and our families. We require all employees to pledge annually to uphold this as our top priority. We place a relentless focus on creating a safe and healthy work environment.
Excellence: An expectation to continuously strive for world class performance in our individual behavior and business performance as measured against the highest standard we know or can imagine.
Respect: This is the cornerstone of how we behave toward others and is built on the belief in the inherent good intentions and orientation toward growth in fellow human beings. We believe all people are fully worthy of growth and development.
Commitment to Our People
People drive EnPro’s success. Our colleagues – the most valuable part of EnPro – are empowered to develop themselves as they build capability into our businesses via creativity and initiative. We are committed to helping them develop. This commitment enables us to attract and retain a diverse workforce of top-tier talent, positioning us for continued growth.
In a time of rapidly changing markets, where the pace of change is ever accelerating, EnPro chooses to aggressively respond by investing in human development – confident that these investments will produce the flourishing of our people and financial returns. We have invested in development workshops that have directly impacted more than 6,000 colleagues at all levels. These workshops involve learning through doing, which in turn spurs learning by experimenting, accelerating how quickly our people and teams gain knowledge.
Dual Bottom Line
Our purpose is to enable the full release of human possibility. As a Dual Bottom Line company, human development carries equal importance to financial performance. There is no trade-off between the two and we measure both. People who are focused on developing themselves pursue excellence, and when excellence is pursued, financial results are superior. Our human development philosophy is evident in our daily behavior and supported by an education system built on everyone teaching and learning from others. We recognize people learn and change from the inside of themselves on their terms, consistent with their beliefs.
In 2012, EnPro launched Building Our Workplace (BOW), a two day workshop that builds awareness of EnPro’s dual-bottom line culture. Nearly 5,700 employees participated in over 200 workshops facilitated by 150 educators worldwide. The workshop is offered regionally at various times of the year for all newly hired employees.
BOW emphasizes developing oneself in the areas of Community Building, Self-Awareness, Communication, Resolving Differences and My Full Possibility. The goal is to promote common understanding about our culture and equip all employees with skills necessary to work in a dual-bottom line company.
Working Your Way
We believe the people closest to the job should have the most input into how it is performed. Our employees have the freedom to define – and redefine – how and what they do.
This philosophy has led to success and the creation of long-term gains. It also earned EnPro an award from the New Jersey Manufacturing Extension Program, which honored our GGB business as the Large Manufacturer of the Year. This award recognized how teams throughout our business collaborate to resolve issues while challenging each other to improve by thinking differently.
Diversity and Workforce Equality
EnPro values diversity and is committed to providing equal opportunity for all employees. Discrimination based on gender, race, disability, ethnicity, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, protected veteran status, or gender identity will not be tolerated. At EnPro, we encourage mutual respect among all employees.
We are committed to fair living wages for all employees, and our wages and benefits are competitive within our industry and local labor market. Our working hours contribute to a healthy work-life balance. The right to pursue your life’s vision and purpose using EnPro’s work as a vehicle applies equally to everyone.
At EnPro, "learning & development" is not just another corporate catch phrase. Instead, it is an engrained element of our culture and a foundation on which we build our business and enlarge our capabilities. EnPro offers an educational assistance program, industry courses, a learning library, as well as many leadership development programs. It is our philosophy to hire and retain highly motivated employees and provide them with a vehicle that will enable them to continue to grow.
EnPro believes its vitality as a business is linked with the quality of life in the communities where it operates and that those communities become stronger through the contributions and involvement of its employees. EnPro encourages and supports employees who share their time, talents and resources with qualifying organizations through a matching gift program whereby EnPro will match, dollar-for-dollar, an employee’s gift with annual max of $1,000 per employee. We will also provide additional company match for volunteer hours with the recipient organization.
EnPro has raised more than 1.1M dollars for United Way through annual campaign giving. Several of our operating locations hold fundraisers to support local charities of their choice including Houston Food Bank, Stateline Family YMCA in Beloit, WI, American Cancer Society of New York, American Cancer Society of Florida, Millington Needy Families Fund, Susan G. Komen Philadelphia, D.O.R.S. Youth Transition Center, Three Gaits, Inc., Habitat for Humanity and many more.
Annually, we give community service awards to employees or teams who have done something spectacular with community outreach. One example of this is an employee with our Technetics manufacturing facility in Saint Etienne, France who developed a program to employ people with disabilities, providing them with an opportunity to put their talents to work.
