Diversity and Employee Initiatives
At UniFirst, we believe that our success depends on our ability to embrace diversity companywide and realize the benefits of a diverse workforce that includes a greater variety of solutions to problems, a broader collection of skills and experiences, and an array of viewpoints to consider. Not to mention, more diverse Team Partners means a better understanding of our diverse customers' needs. We are committed to practicing affirmative action in the hiring, promotion, transfer, and training of all Team Partners.
We also appreciate the value of education and recognize the importance of encouraging the leaders of tomorrow to develop their professional skills and expand their educational foundations through continued academic enrichment.
And, as part of our commitment to talent development, we heavily invest in ongoing training for all UniFirst Team Partners. With two departments dedicated to on-the-job training programs and an estimated annual spend of over $13 million, we believe that there is no substitute for a knowledgeable team.
