The Reasons for Our Success: Our Employees

At DuPont, our most valuable assets are our employees. Their commitment to excellence, innovation and making the world a better and safer place is a key reason for our success.

We are fortunate to have so many talented people with different backgrounds, interests and skills who come together to make DuPont a strong and thriving company. Together, we develop the technologies, products and offerings of the future.

DuPont is a place where teamwork is essential. Yet our employees also maintain the freedom to work on their own, be creative and make their own decisions. And, most of all, grow both personally and professionally.

For more than 200 years, the DuPont core values of commitment to safety, health and the environment, high ethical standards and respect for people have been the cornerstone of who we are and what we stand for. We also are dedicated to working with customers to develop products and services that meet and anticipate their needs.
