The Three Pillars of Our Culture
These foundational pillars shape our culture and help us come together to lead, create, and innovate to better serve students, educators, and school communities.
Our rich history makes us storytellers, but our far-reaching impact on millions of lives makes us story-changers. It is through learning that people create a better world—and we spread learning. This is our High Purpose.
When our people and customers are highly performing, we succeed as a company. We are able to create better products and ultimately have a bigger impact on society. This is our Double Bottom Line.
PEOPLE SUCCESS + CUSTOMER SUCCESS = COMPANY SUCCESS
What We Value
Our values outline how we achieve our High Purpose and High Performance. These values represent the best of who we are, who we’ve been, and who we strive to be. They guide the way we make decisions, collaborate, and grow as individuals and as a company.
Trust is our foundation. It grows from clarity, consistency, and character.
We embrace diversity and equity. We strive for justice to transform lives.
We support every new generation by learning and growing with them.
We imagine what is possible and implement it without fear of failure.
We have the courage to lead and disrupt because what we value demands it.
We take ownership because our work is greater than our individual achievements.
I have been proud to work for HMH for the past 20 years, and grow even more proud every day as we evolve our understanding of what it means to grow in diversity, deliver on a commitment to equity, and create environments that are truly inclusive.
Our Employee Experience
We strive to create an environment that meets the needs of every team member.
Set for Success
We help employees understand “what’s expected of them” and strive to provide the clarity, resources, and time required to deliver on our priorities.
We work to provide an environment that offers flexibility—with more than 70% of our jobs completely or partially remote.
We work to ensure every employee can grow both professionally and personally with access to development planning tools, thousands of on-demand training modules, and a robust mentoring program.
We provide a wide range of offerings that support employees’ physical, emotional, and financial well-being.
We rally around our “High Purpose” and reinforce our core values with our actions, not just our words.
We help our employees strengthen their family and community connections. We have a comprehensive Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion program, with nine Employee Resource Groups and a commitment to creating an environment where employees can bring their authentic selves to work every day.
Building a Better Workplace
We partner with Gallup® annually to measure company engagement and empower our employees to make their voices heard. We use this input to create solutions to address key pain points.
Since we started our partnership with Gallup, engagement levels have increased every year.
