The Importance of Diversity in the Workplace

Numerous studies and articles have shown that diversity is a key factor in a business’s ability to grow and thrive, while also helping employees become more creative, empathetic, and well-rounded.

At The Container Store, we don’t treat diversity like a trendy buzzword or have a department specifically devoted to promoting diversity; instead, we believe diversity is a natural result of our principled, inclusive, values-driven approach to business. Our culture embraces and celebrates the talents and perspectives of all our employees regardless of race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation, resulting in a loving, tight-knit, and FUN place to work!

We’re proud that FORTUNE and Great Place To Work have recognized our inclusive approach to business by naming us one of the 2017 Best Workplaces for Diversity! In order to compile the list, they examined over 440,000 employee survey responses from a wide variety of industries, and these survey questions covered topics such as professional development, leadership confidence, and the consistent treatment of employees of different backgrounds. The list also took into account the share of women, people of color, Baby Boomers, and LGBTQ employees in each of these companies.

This is truly one of the most important honors we could receive from our employees – thank you to every single person who touches our business, making it greater and better every single day!
