Workforce + Culture
PolyOne is committed to helping its employees build successful, long-term careers. Only by recruiting the best talent, developing their careers and rewarding them for their contributions, and then promoting them from within, will PolyOne remain as the global leader in specialized polymer materials, services and solutions. We take development in our people seriously, investing time, money and resources into making our associates the best at what they do.
PolyOne's commitment to the health and well-being of our employees, our customers, and our neighbors is second to none. It runs deep in our culture, our values, and our beliefs. Our record of excellence in safety performance, established over many years, sets the standard within our industry.* But we don’t stop there. PolyOne's safety performance ranks us among the safest manufacturing companies in the world, companies who are members of the American Chemistry Council (ACC) who put Responsible Care into practice every day.
At PolyOne, we live a culture of world-class safety performance that our employees, our customers, and our communities expect and deserve.

LEAD by Women
Leadership, Empowerment, Advancement and Development
LEAD by Women is a global PolyOne initiative designed to promote diversity and inclusion, by increasing access to the tools and resources necessary to build leadership skills and accelerate careers. While it’s led by women, the program encourages all employees to participate, learn and develop skills.
At the core of LEAD by Women are two strategic priorities: developing people, personally and professionally, and building networks for collaboration. Events have been organized all over the world since the program’s launch in the spring of 2017. Global speakers, local chapter programs, development programs, interactive case studies, mentoring, social events and more are used to accomplish the program’s strategic priorities.
PRIDE at PolyOne:
Launched in the spring of 2018, PRIDE at PolyOne intends to promote a safe and accepting environment for all LGBT associates to perform to their fullest potential and contribute to the success of PolyOne. PRIDE at PolyOne is an all-inclusive group - everyone is encouraged to participate, volunteer, learn, and advance our mission to make PolyOne “the company of choice for all.”
