People and Culture
Our employees are the foundation of our sustainable top performance.
Our strategy begins with attracting the best, most diverse talent from top colleges and the labor market. We hire military veterans for their commitment, high ethical standards, skills, experiences and knowledge of our industry. We have a strong commitment to hiring and mentoring our nation’s wounded warriors. Our focus on building the best culture ensures that we attract and retain the best employees. We do this by creating a diverse and inclusive workforce that emphasizes employee and team engagement. Our annual employee survey asks our employees across the globe about engagement and inclusion, which are essential to our company’s culture. Other elements that are crucial to our best culture approach include our robust performance management process focused on recognizing top performers at Northrop Grumman. The performance management process and leadership development programs are a critical part of preparing for the challenges we will face in the future. Through our Northrop Grumman Development Center, all employees can leverage online, career-specific tools and resources to help them gain key job experience, increase business exposure and enhance skills with education and training.
