Staples offers a dynamic work environment where each of our 91,000 associates is given the support they need to learn, grow and reach their potential. To us, diversity isn't just about race and gender. It's about creating an inclusive environment where the diversity of people, experiences and thought are valued.
We're also committed to supplier diversity. In 2009, Staples spent $305 million with minority- and women-owned, veteran-owned, and small disadvantaged businesses. And we're focused on increasing the number of diversity suppliers we work with every year.
Staples has received numerous recognitions for our diversity commitment and initiatives.
