Diversity & Inclusion: Our similarities and differences make us a stronger and more competitive workforce
At Ryder, we believe that our differences make us stronger and that our goals and values are enriched by the varying backgrounds, cultures and points of view that comprise our organization. We also believe that a diverse workplace enables us to attract and retain the best talent to meet and exceed customer expectations.
Diversity is about more than gender or ethnicity. It’s about experience, perspective and understanding. In a very real sense, diversity and inclusion keep us competitive. As the world becomes more mobile and connected, as demographics change and our customers become more diverse, it’s essential to have a workforce of individuals who contribute a variety of approaches and perspectives.
Ryder’s commitment to diversity & inclusion starts at the top. Our Diversity & Inclusion Council, made up of 11 cross-functional leaders, guides the company in achieving three key goals: becoming an employer that attracts diverse talent, developing the diverse talent we already have and driving innovation and growth through diversity of thought.
Our slogan, “Diversity & Inclusion: It Starts with You” reflects the belief that every employee at Ryder has an opportunity to shape our future success. Ryder employees execute our focus on sustaining a diverse and inclusive workplace and engaging community partnerships and diverse suppliers to ensure long-term business success.
