Inclusive Culture

Our inclusive culture is the foundation of everything we do. Employees feel empowered to make meaningful contributions.

Eight Values. One Team.

We have a strong set of company values that guide our employees every day. These core values shape our behavior and support our business and people as we continue to grow.


Be Different. Be You.


We are committed to workplace diversity because it’s the right thing to do - both for employees and for our business. By creating an inclusive environment of involvement, respect and connection for all, we put diversity into action. Specific diversity programs include:

  • Women.Empowered.: A development program featuring a curriculum with focused attention on career growth and creating an inclusive workplace for everyone.

  • Workplace Flexibility: Implementing flexible schedules, remote working and job sharing to help male and female employees balance work and personal responsibilities.

  • Unconscious Bias: A global training program that helps managers identify and counter unconscious bias in the workplace.



As a materials science and manufacturing company, ensuring our products are produced as sustainably as possible is important to us. We’ve established robust 2025 sustainability goals that inspire us to think bigger and reach higher, applying our collaborative spirit, passion for innovation, and technical expertise to transform our operations, our products, our industry, and, ultimately, our world.


Across our company and around the world, our employees are finding new ways to be a force for good. We see ourselves as an extension of the communities where we live and work. That’s why we support employees in volunteering and giving back to their communities, and invest in strong corporate social responsibility programming, including:

  • Global grantmaking through the Avery Dennison Foundation in the areas of education, sustainability, and women’s empowerment.

  • Employee volunteer opportunities to help improve the communities surrounding our facilities.

  • Annual Avery Dennison Foundation awards that recognize and encourage volunteer community service by employees worldwide.
