At Giant Eagle, we believe inclusion, equity, and diversity are critical for three reasons.
First, it is simply the right thing to do - supporting a culture in which everyone, regardless of what makes them unique, can thrive. This is the foundation of treating people with respect.
Second, it is crucial to building a great business. Innovation and staying relevant to our Guests, who all have unique needs, is the key to business success. For that to happen, we need people from different backgrounds and with different perspectives who can help solve problems from different angles. To make the best possible business decisions, our Team Members must feel like they belong and therefore be able to bring their whole selves to work.
Third, we know that Giant Eagle can't truly thrive until everyone in our community thrives, and we're committed to doing our part to help every community member feel included. We're honored to play an important role in our communities by providing our neighbors with the essentials they need to thrive. To do this, we must understand their unique perspectives and needs - listening, learning, and valuing everyone's contributions and experiences.
We think about the order of the words inclusion, equity, and diversity very intentionally. Although diversity and equity are critical elements of the work, we believe they are merely a means to our true goal of inclusion, which is why we put inclusion first. Without inclusion, it's all for naught.
While we focus every day on acknowledging blind spots, educating ourselves, and taking action, we know we're running a marathon and still have so far to go. But, if we're open, honest, and vulnerable. we will continue to build bridges with one another and continue to move forward together.
We are building a global workforce because we know that's what it takes to be competitive as a leading retailer and to harness the innovation necessary to sustain the business well into the future. We have an opportunity to broaden our perspectives even more and include a whole new set of voices in our company. We are so excited to be working with our Team Members in Bengaluru and across India. We can't wait to build an environment where we are learning from one another and growing together.
We are determined to make progress and lead on inclusion, equity, and diversity and welcome you to join us on this journey.
How We Define Inclusion, Equity & Diversity
At Giant Eagle, we know that a culture of inclusion and belonging, based on respect for all people, is the right thing to do. Everyone from all walks of life who interacts with our Company should feel like they belong. This includes our Team Members, Guests, business partners, community members and shareholders.
It is also a critical path to innovation and business success. When people feel like they belong, they work smarter and more creatively. We build an inclusive, equitable and diverse culture by empowering each person, collaborating with people who think differently and celebrating their differences and unique talents.
Giant Eagle will build a better and more informed business when it engages with the diverse perspectives of each Team Member, Guest, business partner, community member and shareholder, and incorporates those perspectives into every action and decision. Our Company will mirror the people we serve.
Every person who interacts with Giant Eagle will feel like they belong and can thrive as their true self.
2023 Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion
Last modified 07/06/2023 We are honored to receive this award in recognition for our commitment to inclusivity.
Giant Eagle has been a great learning and growth platform for me. As part of the Category Analytics team within Merchandising Strategy, I have had the opportunity to directly interact with Category Managers, understand challenges and focus areas, provide meaningful and actionable insights, and add value to the business. This has certainly helped me broaden my retail experience and knowledge and enrich my professional career. I look forward to a more rewarding and exciting career path ahead.
My favorite part of my job is research and development of new products, specifically Ready to Cook Meal Kits. Not only do I get to engage my creative side, but it requires a lot of inter-department coordination and logic to piece the puzzle together for a successful product. It gives me the opportunity to work with different people and products. It never feels like work!
