1 The Willis Towers Watson global high-performance companies norm is based on responses from 145,000 employees at 28 companies. Companies qualify for the norm by meeting two criteria: 1) superior financial performance, defined by a net profit margin and/or return on invested capital that exceeds industry averages; and 2) superior human resources practices, defined by employee opinion scores near the top among the most financially successful companies surveyed by Willis Towers Watson.

2 Based on corporate benchmarking by Clorox, we consider a recordable incident rate of 1.0 or less to be world-class. Our fiscal year 2016 RIR of 0.61 means that for every 100 Clorox employees, we averaged less than one reportable incident during the past year. According to the latest available data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average RIR for goods-producing manufacturing companies is 3.8. The criteria used to determine RIR follow the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration guidelines and are applied globally.
