Putting People First
We believe in the value of individuality and the power of coming together. At Essendant, you can thrive in an environment where everyone has a place, a voice and a purpose.
We celebrate our unique identities and know together they make us a stronger and more innovative team. Creating a welcoming environment for everyone is central to our commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. Our Associate Network Groups are communities built on shared interests. They provide the opportunity for people to connect, learn and support the causes they represent.
Through the Essendant Charitable Foundation and councils across the country, associates make a meaningful difference. By volunteering and donating, we support local charities and the City of Hope, a leading research and treatment center for cancer. Our signature program, Backpacks for Kids, provides tens of thousands of backpacks filled with school supplies to children in need so that they come to school on day one, ready to learn.
We work together with community agencies to address and create opportunities at Essendant for those with disabilities, veterans, formerly incarcerated individuals and other underrepresented groups. By empowering all, we build a more powerful team – more diverse, stable and productive.
