Collaboration, Innovation, Success

Our success is attributable to the 2,000 Benjamin Moore employees who dedicate their time and talents to the brand and exemplify our core values of openness, integrity, community, excellence, and safety. The various disciplines within our workforce form one team that shares achievements and continues to build on our nearly 140-year legacy within the marketplace.

With an impressive average of 10 years of service, Benjamin Moore employees enjoy an environment of collaboration and learning. Employee offerings are regularly evaluated to ensure our people receive competitive and well-rounded benefits, career development options and opportunities to come together.

It is because of our dedicated and diverse team that our business continues to thrive. Learn more about our DE&I efforts.

Total Rewards–The Employee Experience

At Benjamin Moore, we strive to provide our employees with a sense of greater purpose through service to the communities where we live and work, and encouraged to volunteer.

Since 2017, Benjamin Moore employees have donated 7,200 volunteer hours to causes and community projects. Additionally, the company offers a matching gifts program, contributing $2 for every $1 donated by employees to the charities of their choice. This program has contributed $1.3 million to qualified nonprofit organizations since 2019.

Talent Development in an Evolving Environment

Employees participated in over 16,000 hours of online and in-person learning opportunities in 2022. In addition to personal development and skills training such as developing business acumen, polishing management and leadership capabilities, and enhancing knowledge of frequently used tools and software, we continue to administer annual cybersecurity, business practices, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), and harassment training.

Our Transformation and Development team continuously reviews and expands offerings to support employees in the current work environment, reaching a larger number of learners. This year we introduced access to LinkedIn Learning® to over 400 employees. Subjects accessed on the LinkedIn Learning® platform include Microsoft® Excel®, how to transition from a manager to a leader and emotional intelligence.

Our Leadership, Exposure and Discussion Circles (L.E.A.D. circles) program provides employees with an opportunity to build business acumen and professional skills through the combination of mentoring and experiential learning. Circles help employees stay connected with co-workers across the company, navigate the workplace, and garner insights into various business areas. In 2022, 65 employees participated in the program led by seven mentors and facilitators.

Health, Safety and Security

Benjamin Moore is dedicated to maintaining a safety culture in the workplace. As one of our core values, safety is at the forefront of all we do. In 2022, eleven of our 24 distribution and manufacturing facilities and our R&D site have had no loss time accidents for more than two years.

Life Critical Rules

To ensure the well-being of employees, we established Life Critical Rules. All employees are expected to adhere to these 11 carefully selected safety priorities. Failure to follow these rules may create a greater risk of injury to our employees, contractors and/or visitors. Employees are empowered and expected to stop work due to an unsafe condition or act that could result in an undesirable event or violation of one of the Life Critical Rules.


Since 2015, the SafeStart® Critical Error Reduction Techniques program has been embedded in our facilities across North America. To sustain the program, 18 Benjamin Moore employees are certified as SafeStart trainers— reinforcing knowledge with practical techniques that help our people stay mindful of safety risks at work and home.

Approximately 1,000 employees in our manufacturing, distribution, research & development, and quality departments have been trained on SafeStart principles since the program was introduced.

In 2022, Benjamin Moore began a SAFELEAD, SafeStart’s Safety Leader program, at our Landover, MD and Newark, NJ sites. SAFELEAD is an interactive training for frontline leaders that provides effective leadership skills and actionable knowledge on using human factors to engage employees. Frontline leaders are taught to assess for various hazards, encourage more near-miss reporting, and anticipate human error.

Security and Workplace Threat Response Enhancements

A comprehensive security plan was developed to standardize the company’s security-focused technology platforms and better protect our employees from internal and external threats. Enhancements consist of visual and access monitoring capabilities and the addition of a mass communications platform. In addition to updated technology, in-person training covering workplace violence prevention, active shooter scenarios, and situational awareness was conducted at all the supply chain sites.
