The entrepreneurial spirit established by founder Art Parker set the company on a distinct path of innovation and growth.
Today, Parker aims to rekindle that spirit by encouraging flexibility, autonomy and the ability to explore and excel.
• High Performance Teams & Leaders
A structured approach to team work and collaborative decision making, High Performance Teams are formed at Parker to apply
the unique knowledge and perspective of team members closest to the product and the customer. This structure empowers people
to leverage their expertise to solve problems, implement decisions and improve the company.
A safety-first environment is not only the right way to run the company, it is also the most productive. Safety, productivity and
profitability are all closely linked.
• Speed Within Win Strategy
Several strategies included in the Win Strategy are intended to increase the speed with which Parker team members perform
tasks and, as a result, cut the time it takes for Parker to respond to customer needs or changes in the market.
• Ownership > 80% in High Performance Teams
Establishing an entrepreneurial framework that empowers team members to make
decisions which impact their work is dependent upon ensuring they are engaged in
High Performance Teams. Parker is targeting an 80% or greater participation rate.
• Inclusive Environment
Parker is committed to building a diverse and inclusive workforce that respects and
embraces the unique perspectives of all people.
• Engagement Survey > 74%
The level of success Parker achieves in implementing the strategies is dependent on a fully engaged global team. Parker’s
Global Employee Engagement Survey questions are scientifically structured to accurately measure engagement with the goal to
achieve an engagement score of 74% or better, which is top quartile performance.
• Environmental, Health & Safety
Nothing is more important to Parker than making sure every team member returns
home safely after each work day. The company is also committed to operating
responsibly and preserving its vibrant communities around the world by serving as an active steward of the environment through resource conservation, waste
reduction and sustainable product design.
