Diversity and Inclusion

We are guided by the Golden Rule and our core values at Lincoln Electric and recognize that advancing diversity extends beyond respecting and valuing the important differences between us in the workplace. We know that to achieve our best results, we must openly embrace a diversity of skills, thoughts, and the outcomes they deliver through inclusion and engagement.

Our 2025 Higher Standard Strategy focuses on the importance of employee engagement and fostering an organization where every employee is encouraged and motivated to bring their unique perspectives and talents forward. It is how we develop a diverse talent pipeline and attract top recruits to our Company to successfully drive our global strategy. With manufacturing operations in 9 U.S. states, in 18 countries spanning 5 continents, as well as customers in over 165 countries – it is essential that we understand and respect the customs and business practices of one another to achieve success together.

At Lincoln Electric, we have a longstanding commitment to equal opportunity in all aspects of employment – including employee compensation, job placement and promotion regardless of gender, race or other personal characteristics. We review and update our HR processes and benchmark roles and compensation externally on a regular basis to help prevent bias and promote a diverse and inclusive workplace.

We are well on our journey to enhancing a more diverse and inclusive workplace: an environment where differences are valued and integrated into every part of our organization and where each individual’s unique contribution is encouraged. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion starts at the top and our leadership team is committed to this effort. Our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Human Resources Officer lead our D&I initiatives and our CEO is a signatory of the “CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion.” Both leaders report on the Company’s diversity and inclusion programs, talent attraction and retention, and succession planning to the Board of Directors twice annually. In addition, our senior leaders have diversity and inclusion objectives as part of their annual performance goals.

To support a diverse pipeline of new employees, the Company has focused on diverse talent sourcing strategies and partners with external organizations that develop and supply diverse talent. This includes partnering and recruiting with associations such as the National Society of Black Engineers, the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, the Society of Women Engineers, and at institutions such as North Carolina A&T.
