Employee experience

We invest in our people’s success

  • At 3M, we know that engaged employees are more productive and committed, more satisfied with their work, and more likely to stay longer. Working at 3M provides a range of development opportunities few other companies can offer.

    Throughout the organization, we foster a culture of continual learning to help employees develop the skills of tomorrow. We also provide competitive benefits and recognition programs to support employees throughout their career.

Key impacts

  • Learning and development

    Through 3M Learn, our integrated learning and development platform, employees can access and explore personalized learning content and curated resources. 3M Learn contains tens of thousands of learning resources in more than 30 languages. 3M Learn reaches our entire global workforce, and employees receive recommended content based on their role.

  • Employee recognition

    Everyday Wins is our global point-based recognition tool that’s a convenient way to recognize fellow employees or groups when they embody 3M’s culture elements or go above and beyond. Our entire workforce can give and receive recognition points in real time on the platform. In 2023, the equivalent of more than $30 million in points was awarded by and sent to employees.

  • Flexible work models

    Work Your Way is 3M's trust-based work model that enables well-being and productivity in ways that drive our business and performance goals. Nonproduction employees may access three broad options — mainly on-site, hybrid, or remote (near or distant) — depending on local laws, regulations, work agreements, or other conditions. Many of our production employees have opportunities for flexibility such as shift swapping, adjustable start/end times, part-time models, job rotations, and more, with some options varying by site and geography.
