Of all the pathways to growth, investing in our people is most important.
The premise is simple - if your people grow, your company will grow. The key: Linking growth in individuals to those things that unlock energy and activities that our customers value.
At 3M, we believe that what the company stands for is just as important as what we sell. We are proud to have built a century-old tradition of operating with uncompromising honesty and integrity.
