  1. The FY18 engagement survey was open for three weeks, during which time 83 percent of eligible Clorox employees completed the survey (6,350 of 7,611). The Willis Towers Watson Global High-Performance Norm is based on responses from 409,521 employees (weighted N-size of 140,136) at 24 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. The Willis Towers Watson Global Fast-Moving Consumer Goods Norm is comprised of employee survey results from a cross-section of organizations that produce fast-moving consumer goods, based on responses from 823,964 employees (weighted N-size of 146,652) at 68 companies.
  2. Based on corporate benchmarking by Clorox, we consider a recordable incident rate of 1.0 or less to be world-class. Our FY18 RIR of 0.82 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 3.6. The criteria used to determine RIR follows the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration guidelines and is applied globally.
  3. U.S. Census Bureau benchmark metrics are based on the U.S. Census Bureau’s Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Tabulation 2006-2010, American Community Survey 5-year dataset. The benchmarks are modeled using Clorox’s workforce as of June 30, 2018. The calculations utilize weighted averages by U.S. Census job code and apply approximate workforce location assumptions based on Clorox’s historical workforce locations and headcount trends.
