The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company: Growing Seeds of Diversity

The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, the world's largest marketer of branded consumer lawn and garden products, was founded in 1868 by O.M. Scott as a lawn grass seed business for homeowners.

A significant milestone in its history was the merger in 1995 of Scotts, the leading lawn care brand, with Miracle-Gro, the leading gardening brand, to create The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company.

The corporate vision of Scotts Miracle-Gro is "To help people of all ages express themselves on their own piece of the Earth," while part of its mission is to provide a dynamic workplace for our associates to succeed and grow their careers.

Since it believes every employee and each job is essential to its success, Scotts Miracle-Gro is committed to providing a safe, inclusive and productive workplace built on a foundation of shared responsibility and mutual respect.

Scotts Miracle-Gro's work culture is so highly energetic and dynamic that each of their associates feels like being part of a family.

Diversity and inclusion are well-planted in this ever-growing company, for it is committed to fostering and maintaining diversity of ethnicity, culture, gender, sexual orientation and age among their associates. This is so as its consumers are also diverse.

In fact, Scotts Miracle-Gro supports a variety of diversity outreach initiatives with the goal of developing women in the workplace, aside from partnering with the Ohio Diversity Council, member of the National Diversity Council. Thus, through its partnership, it has access to diversity consulting, enhanced recruiting opportunities and women's leadership symposiums.

As a result, in 2011 38% of its overall U.S. workforce were women, and 31% held positions at the manager level and above.

These diversity initiatives will continue as Scotts Miracle-Gro is committed to increasing these numbers, alongside integrating and expanding its diversity and inclusion initiatives into the process of organizational development.
