When we created Avient and announced on July 1, we did so by bringing two great businesses together to form a truly outstanding one. A key factor in the decision to join together was the cultural fit. Each company brought unique strengths, people and ideas. These aspects, combined with our shared passions and values, are what truly make us better together.
Both organizations had their own longstanding practices of seeking out employee feedback and taking action. In November 2020, we conducted our first Employee Engagement survey as Avient. In the early stages of this new company, it was important that we captured every associates’ feedback to create a great place to work wherever we do business. We asked our associates to share their feedback- and they did!
Over 7,400 Avient associates participated in our survey, representing over 40 countries. We were honored that our scores once again earned us the distinction as a Great Place to Work® by the Great Place to Work Institute.
In another prestigious recognition, Avient was recognized as one of America’s
Most Responsible Companies by Newsweek. Our selection was based on publicly available key performance indicators and an independent survey. The KPIs focused on company performance in the environmental, social, and corporate governance areas, while the independent survey asked U.S. citizens about their perception of company activities related to corporate social responsibility.
