Global Workforce

As we evolve to a more technology-driven business to meet our customers’ smart water needs on a global scale, collaboration among our workforce throughout the world is more important than ever before. As an organization, our future success will not be driven by any one business, but by rather a diverse set of technology-driven solutions, strong brands and talent that come together as one company. Still, our core principles remain the same. We take pride in cultivating a culture that values diversity, recognizes and rewards talent, develops skills for tomorrow’s challenges and fosters good health and well-being.

The majority of our workforce is employed in manufacturing, product management, customer service and engineering positions. The remainder fills leadership, management, business-building and support roles in finance, sales and marketing, IT, human resources and legal.
