Why Diversity Matters
In today’s competitive market for top talent, companies must offer employees more than a good paycheck and benefits. Workplace culture is often more important than compensation for attracting and retaining employees. People want to feel connected and cared for by their employers. Shared values, strong relationships, and opportunities to develop professionally and personally rank high among the factors that influence individuals to work for a company and remain engaged and productive.
Vallen has made a commitment to developing a pipeline for talent—in particular, for women and minorities who are under-represented in the distribution industry. The creation of internal Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) has helped Vallen shape its culture into one that is more inclusive and welcoming of associates from all walks of life.
