At Staples, we believe that diversity is one of our strongest assets. With operations in more than 27 countries, our brand continues to be shaped by the unique backgrounds, perspectives and experiences of our associates and customers around the world. And we are proud to become more diverse every year. We believe that diversity is good for our business. By fostering an inclusive environment — one that welcomes a wide variety of people, thought and experience — we enhance our success and drive shareholder value. Our goal is to reflect the diversity of our customers through our own associates, as well as the hundreds of suppliers and other businesses we work with every day. We consequently strive to enhance and leverage our workforce diversity and promote diversity among our suppliers.
“We’ve built a great company by embracing the differences of our associates, customers and the communities we serve. And our commitment to diversity will grow even stronger as we build the Staples of the future.
Our goal is to reflect the faces of our customers in every market where Staples has a presence. Only then will we achieve our vision of being the world’s best office products company.”
