Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Employees are our greatest asset

We recognize that our employees are our greatest asset, providing us with a competitive edge. For that reason, we believe the power of employee ownership best defines our commitment to DE&I. We are proud to offer all employees equity in our company as part of our Ownership Works Program.

By fostering an environment of employee ownership, we create widespread economic opportunities for all our employees and their families, regardless of their role, location, or background. Ingersoll Rand extends the opportunity of ownership to thousands of people around the world who would not otherwise realize the possibility of long-term value creation through stock ownership. While dialogue and training are critical, employees thinking, acting and being owners is what sets Ingersoll Rand apart in truly taking action to nurture a DE&I culture. 

Beyond employee ownership, Ingersoll Rand’s DE&I culture is focused on improvement for women and under-represented talent (URT) in five key areas:

  • Talent attraction 
  • Engagement 
  • Development 
  • Advancement 
  • Retention 

Over the past two years, we have cultivated Ingersoll Rand’s DE&I culture by emphasizing these five areas and fostering an ownership mindset, driving us closer to our goal of becoming a DE&I leader. In addition, we have established four regional groups in Europe and Asia Pacific, as well as a DE&I council in Latin America, EMEIA and North America. We have enhanced our global connectivity and reinforced our commitment to cultivating a more inclusive organizational culture. Our seven company-wide employee inclusion groups include:

  • Asian Inclusion Group (AIG)
  • Black Employee Network (BEN)
  • Disability Inclusion Group (IRealabilities) 
  • Hispanic/Latinx Org for Leadership Advancement (HOLA)
  • Pride Alliance (PA)
  • Veteran Inclusion Group (VIG)
  • Women’s Inclusion Group (WING)
