Ferguson Corporate Culture
Ferguson’s culture is deeply rooted in our commitment to take care of our associates, our customers and the community. We believe in working hard, working together and uniting for one common goal – to create the best experience possible for our customers. We recruit and retain the best and brightest associates in the industry – those who value teamwork, embrace innovation and thrive in a fast-paced, challenging environment. We build long-lasting partnerships with our customers and neighbors in need, providing more than just a product or a donation. At Ferguson, we truly believe that success comes full circle.
We owe much of our success to the entrepreneurial spirit of our 31,000+ associates serving customers across North America. Good ideas don’t just come from the top down. Innovation comes from every associate at every level of the business. That has been true since our inception, when our founders conceived of a new way of doing business and changed the industry.
Ferguson associates don’t just work together; they have fun together, too. They’re part of a family — one with a tremendous work ethic and rich values that go back to the company’s formative years. Working at Ferguson is a career, not a job. The camaraderie and enthusiasm in our day-to-day lives helps inspire customer service that has no parallel in the industry. By taking the time to celebrate our team’s personal and professional accomplishments, we’re sustaining our culture and longstanding values and preparing for even greater future success.
Giving back is important to Ferguson and is a large part of who we are. Our Ferguson Cares mission is to strengthen the communities where we live and work through associate volunteerism, community partnerships and donations. We work hard to make a meaningful impact by focusing our support on basic needs, families, education, skilled trades and the military – serving as a National Partner with Homes for Our Troops. Our locations across the country are also very active, supporting many local programs that bring about positive change.
Our founders believed a simple philosophy could ensure success at Ferguson. “Being a winner. Not afraid of challenges. Being a genuine team player with common sense judgment. A strong work ethic. Willing to give the very best in attitude and work effort.” Our success would not be possible without our tradition of nurturing talent, empowering our associates to give their best to our customers and our communities.
