Parker’s culture is reflected in the core values we aspire to: A Winning Culture, Passionate People, Valued Customers and Engaged Leadership.
Over time, Parker has nurtured a culture which emphasizes a commitment to excellence and integrity and a special concern for its customers’ welfare. Parker’s continued success in serving its customers, suppliers, employees, shareholders and the general public depends upon each individual employee’s full commitment. Because of our high ethical standards, the Parker name is recognized around the world as a good citizen and a symbol of quality in motion-control products.
Another contributor to Parker's success from the earliest stages of the company's creation is employee empowerment. In 2001, the inclusion of "Empowered Employees" as the foundation of the Win Strategy formalized the idea that encouraging employees to take action and ownership in their work will enable us to improve our performance and achieve our goals.
Employee Empowerment is a clear business differentiator that creates a competitive advantage for Parker by reflecting our unique values, promoting a structured approach to teamwork, recognizing the contribution of all employees, and holding us accountable for results.
We are committed to providing our employees an empowered, results-oriented and values driven work environment with equal opportunity for learning and personal growth.
Diversity is not just a part of our rich history or present culture, but a central aspect of our long-term goals and future plans. Diversity and inclusion are essential in creating a respectful workplace in which all employees are empowered, have the ability to grow and are recognized for their contributions.

The Parker Hannifin Foundation extends the goodwill of Parker’s employees often matching gifts and donations that benefit the communities we call home.
