We strive to have past, current, and future employees view their experiences at Iron Mountain as an accomplishment and source of pride.

At Iron Mountain, we foster a culture of collaboration, courage, and customer obsession that all employees live by. We work together to create a workplace where employees’ authentic selves are welcomed, accepted, and included. When we fuel innovation through diverse ideas, backgrounds and perspectives, our people thrive, our customers benefit, and our business succeeds.

Values That Define Us

Our Values are at the very core of who we are. They are reflected in our thinking, our actions, and in the way we interact with each other, our customers and our communities. Taken together, our values are central to our culture. We live them everyday - regardless of our role. With our values as a guide we remain focused on creating value for customers.

Inclusion and Diversity at Iron Mountain

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Iron Mountain

Iron Mountain is committed to intentionally creating and supporting an inclusive and diverse workforce. This culture of diversity allows us to recruit, hire, and retain the best talent while fostering an inclusive environment where many voices are heard. We see diversity as all the characteristics and experiences that define each of us as individuals. Diversity includes everything that makes us who we are—all the ways in which we are similar, and all the ways in which we are different. Diversity includes things like race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, sexual orientation, veteran status, gender identity or gender expression.

Inclusion happens when you value the differences and the commonalities of others. One of our core values is to promote inclusion and teamwork throughout the various parts of our organization. This means we look for and value each other’s unique ideas and perspectives to get better results.

 Employee Resource Groups

Our employee resource groups (ERGs) are employee-led, Iron Mountain-supported groups that bring employees together based on shared life experiences, backgrounds, or characteristics.

ERGs are composed of underrepresented people and their allies. Groups are centered on culture, professional development, business impact, and community. All ERGs are open to every employee, and more than 1,500 employees participate with one or more of our eight ERGs.
