Talent Acquisition & Employee Engagement

We are committed to providing our people with opportunities to learn, grow and be recognized for their achievements. We are also committed to investing in our people by providing learning and employee networking opportunities to drive retention, progression and engagement and help them excel in their current and future roles.

Attracting and Developing the Best Talent

Our people are a key aspect of what sets us apart and drives our business forward. Without their hard work, integrity and vision for the future, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Through our integrated talent management strategy, we strive to attract, retain and support a team that reflects diverse backgrounds and perspectives, embraces our inclusive culture and reflects the customers and communities we serve.


At Sherwin-Williams, we pride ourselves on being an employer of choice and fostering an inclusive, supportive culture. From working in our manufacturing and distribution centers, to experiencing the freedom of the open road as one of our drivers, to serving local customers on the sales floor, our diverse career paths are designed to encourage all employees to create a career uniquely meaningful to them.

Investing in Future Leaders

Sherwin-Williams management trainee programs offer structured pathways to career advancement opportunities within our stores, in the field and with our retail partners. Our respected sales and management trainee programs empower employees to become experts in our business and build acumen to become leaders. 


Consistent with our talent acquisition and retention strategies, we are committed to amplifying diverse voices and viewpoints through the cultivation of our next generation of leaders. We are working to attract women and underrepresented racial/ethnic groups into our talent pipeline and help them grow as professionals and leaders.

Growing and Succeeding Together

In our ongoing effort to ensure our workforce is representative of the customers and communities we serve, we have identified metrics to track and measure our success in promoting qualified employees, including those from underrepresented racial/ethnic groups and women. Creating more intentional pathways to leadership opportunities is good for our people and our business.
