Staples offers a dynamic work environment where each of our 91,000 associates is given the support they need to learn, grow and reach their potential. To us, diversity isn’t just about race and gender. It’s about creating an inclusive environment where the diversity of people, experiences and thought are valued.
We believe that differences in age, race, gender, and gender identity, nationality, sexual orientation, physical ability, background and thinking style allow us to be more innovative as a company. We’re committed to maintaining a diverse and inclusive culture, from supporting associate resource groups to partnering with diverse suppliers.
Our commitment to foster diversity, by building an inclusive workplace makes us an employer of choice. Embracing diversity also differentiates our brand and allows us to grow profitably and responsibly.
Our commitment to our customers is genuine, as is our commitment to being a responsible corporate citizen. We believe in transparency and have shared our goals and results in this report. We evaluate our progress against goals to make sure we are on track, and, if not, to ask ourselves how we can make better progress and re-calibrate if necessary.
