Given the rapid pace of change in the global marketplace, a diverse, skilled and knowledgeable workforce is a necessity. We consider our employees to be our most valuable resource. To help our people succeed, we provide multiple career advancement and development opportunities and programs.


Individual Development Plans

Every year, Donaldson Company employees work with their managers to create a customized Individual Development Plan (IDP). This process starts with the employee’s career and/or developmental goals. Then the employee and their manager identify the actions needed to best leverage and support the person’s strengths and development needs.


Mentoring Programs

Donaldson Company sponsors individual and group mentoring programs to encourage and support the learning and growth of our people. Oftentimes, employees and mentor partner relationships continue long after the formal mentoring program has ended.


Training Opportunities

Donaldson employees are encouraged to take advantage of a variety of internal educational and training options. Employees can enroll and participate in both classroom and virtual learning offerings, depending on where they are located, and can elect to:

  • Complete an onboarding eLearning session
