Diversity in Business
UPS is in the business of linking people, cultures, and commerce, with diversity as an integral part of its global strategy. And with employees in more than 220 countries and territories worldwide, there's no question that diversity is part of the social fabric at UPS. Diversity is leveraging our unique experiences and contributions because they add value to our culture and contribute to the success of our company.
In today’s world, we understand that diversity encompasses more than race and gender. It extends to the full myriad of issues ranging from ethnicity to sexual orientation to physical ability. Inclusiveness, respect and cooperation are core values that help drive the way we do business with our customers and suppliers - and strengthen our bonds with a multi-cultural community of friends and neighbors.
Employees are the key to our continued success. Long-standing company policies, such as employee ownership, equal opportunity and promotion from within, have helped to foster employee dedication, making UPS a preferred employer.
Through workforce, customer and supplier diversity, the company’s goal is to help communities thrive by embracing and leveraging the unique ideas, cultures, and ideas of its people. In this section, you'll learn more about this goal and how the cornerstones of fairness, respect and dignity serve as the basis of our work environment and our supplier diversity program.
