Our connected community
Culture makes a world of difference. Our culture is one where all employees can feel included and bring their best selves to work. In fact, we sponsor thriving communities of employee resource groups and networks to connect employees with similar interests, providing opportunities for career development, community outreach, and impact to our bottom line—all on work time. Active groups include:
- African American/Black Employee Resource Group
- Asian Employee Resource Group
- Empowered Employee Resource Group
- Hispanic/Latino Employee Resource Group
- Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender/+ Employee Resource Group
- OneABILITY Employee Resource Group
- Veterans Employee Resource Group
- Women in Leadership
- Women in Sales
- Women in Technology Group
Employee resource groups are open to all employees and focuses on the well-being as we live, work and grow together—giving all of us an opportunity to live our own best lives.
Speaking of best lives, you’ll find plenty of ways to enrich your personal and professional life. But those aren’t just words. Hear from our leaders and employees on how we’re making an impact building the careers of our veterans.
Culture isn’t just what happens on the inside
We believe that success depends on everyone's unique experiences, backgrounds and talents coming together to build a stronger whole. That’s why we don’t just accept diverse perspectives—we encourage them.
It’s also why we devote significant resources to charitable giving, volunteer efforts and sponsorships to increase awareness and appreciation for wide-ranging backgrounds and cultures.
