At Enterprise Holdings, having a diverse and inclusive workplace affects every aspect of the business – hiring and retaining the best talent, providing superior customer service, interacting with vendors, and attracting new business. Our focus on an inclusive culture allows all employees to bring their best selves to work every day and share their passions, talents and ideas. A diverse supply chain allows our company to foster growth and opportunities, while also mirroring the communities in which we operate.
As part of our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, we recognize the role we must play in combatting racism, discrimination and injustice in the communities we serve. Our leadership team and our employees are creating an actionable plan to introduce real and lasting change both inside and outside of our company:
- In 2020, the Enterprise Holdings Foundation allocated nearly one million dollars for our colleagues to distribute to non-profits supporting social and racial equity efforts to help create positive change in the communities where we live and work.
- Our global program – My purpose. My time. – provides employees with paid time off so that they can personally volunteer and serve local community causes that are most important to them.
- We’re expanding our diversity, equity and inclusion training curriculum to create more focus on topics impacting our colleagues, while also providing more tangible solutions and training on how best to address critical conversations, inclusive leadership and unconscious bias.
These initiatives are a very early start to the development of specific actions that follow our commitments. As a company, we know we can do more, and we will. It’s how we can begin to bring positive, real and lasting change – both outside and inside our own organization.
