Safe, healthy working conditions, job security and an opportunity for growth and advancement are considered fundamental human rights for employees of Lexmark.
All decisions related to our workforce – internally and through our supply chain – are made with those rights in mind. The pages within this section expand upon our commitment to the betterment of our employees’ and their families’ lives including opportunities for personal growth and empowerment such as training and ongoing education.
Among the many commitments discussed in this section are fair employment practices and diversity. We adhere to these practices in hiring, as well as when interacting with our employees. Lexmark embraces the conventions of the International Labour Organization (ILO) that aim, among other things, to promote open channels of communication among employees.

We also have a supplier diversity program in place that helps ensure that all businesses have ample opportunities to become a part of the Lexmark supply chain. Adhering to all of these principles means that we can hire and retain the best people and that they can do their best work. We are committed to cultivating our most valuable partnership—that which we have with our employees.
