Respect Each Other

Living our value of Respect for the Individual starts with valuing diversity and inclusion. We believe having associates with different backgrounds, styles, experiences, identities, and opinions makes us a better company. Inclusion is an intentional act—it is investing time and energy to understand, support, and champion the uniqueness of individuals. Diversity and inclusion promote individual expression, creativity, innovation, and achievement—and help us better understand and serve our customers.


We are committed to a workplace that is free of harassment and discrimination. We do not tolerate any behavior that diminishes the dignity of a person, inappropriately or unreasonably interferes with work performance, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or otherwise offensive work environment based on an individual’s protected status. We also do not tolerate retaliation against anyone who raises a concern about harassment or discrimination.
