Mary Kay Ash was on to something. The corporate culture she created began with practices such as imagining that everyone she met wore a sign that read, "Make me feel important" and identifying the selfless pursuit of the greater good as the Go-Give® spirit. She steadfastly believed in keeping one’s priorities in balance, with her personal priorities of "Faith first, family second and career third," as well as always doing what is right, honourable and ethical with hard work and fortitude.
We continue to honour the culture our Founder created by carrying on this extraordinary legacy today. Walk through the halls of Mary Kay in any of our markets across the globe, and you’ll experience an atmosphere of teamwork and respect where working relationships are built upon trust, honesty and kindness. We’re all a part of the Mary Kay family.
At Mary Kay, we’re not just enriching the lives of women around the world, we’re helping our employees develop their full potential through a variety of training, leadership and mentoring programs. We do this with a spirit of encouragement and positive support.
Our employees also enjoy tangible rewards, such as a competitive benefits package and exciting recognition and prizes for jobs well done. And we never miss an opportunity to celebrate. Our employees recognize birthdays, anniversaries, successes and milestones, both personally and professionally. Ours is truly a company that celebrates people. Mary Kay once said, “You can take away all of our assets … leave us our people, and we can do it again because people are our most important asset.”
As a Mary Kay family we take great pride in our legacy of caring. Giving was a way of life for Mary Kay, and we’ve been taught as well to understand the importance of giving back. The Golden Rule isn’t just a smart business principle; it’s an extraordinary way of life. And it reaches into every corner of our business around the globe.
Mary Kay is changing the lives of women and children around the world with efforts that range from providing reading resources to girls in Taiwan, supporting children’s charities in Kazakhstan to partnering with Habitat for Humanity® to build homes for families in need in the United States. In Canada, the Foundation’s annual shelter grant program awarded grants to domestic violence shelters and outreach programs in most provinces and territories across Canada. We’re also proud to support The Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation as it supports women living with cancer through the Look Good Feel Better® program and strives to eliminate domestic violence against women and children. These causes were close to the heart of Mary Kay Ash, and at Mary Kay, you can help make a difference every day.
