Companies that prosper over time show a clear sense of purpose and core values. They translate them into action and ensure that they are reflected consistently throughout the organization in everything it does.
At Kohler Co., adherence to our corporate mission ..."to improve the level of gracious living in the lives of all who are touched by our products and services"...identifies a clear sense of purpose for the more than 31,000 Kohler associates around the world.
Continued success springs from a clear sense of purpose and a corporate culture which promotes:
- Living on the leading edge, meshing art and advanced technology to create new products, new markets and new niches within existing markets.
- Maintaining a single high standard of quality in all products and services to make them capable of delighting the senses and sensibility of end users consistently.
- Continually reinvesting the majority of our earnings in operational excellence. These principles have been powerful in driving the long-term success and character of the Kohler organization. Yet, a company cannot be explained in terms of mission or principles alone. Human energy is required to give life and direction to a mission.
