Built For You – Diversity & Inclusion message from CEO, Tribby Warfield

In order for us to be a high-performing organization in the 21st century, we must constantly strive to foster an inclusive work culture and maintain an environment that embraces the diversity of our workforce. Diversity includes all the characteristics, experiences, and cultural influences that make us each unique. However, diversity by itself is not enough. Our company must utilize that collective diversity of thought to capture the potential that comes in the form of inclusion.

Inclusion creates a positive work environment where all employees have the opportunity to reach their full potential and maximize their contributions, personally and for the company’s future success. In addition, we recognize that continued success in meeting the needs of our employees, customers, suppliers, and partners, both internal and external, requires the full and active participation of talented and committed individuals. With inclusion, we can capture a competitive advantage from changing demographics across the workplace and in the marketplace become a magnet, attracting top diverse talent. This leads to greater creativity and innovation that can help us distance ourselves from our competition and enhance our brand.

We must ensure that diversity, inclusiveness, and respect are integral parts of our day-to-day management and work. In carrying out this mission, we must set a strong example in our own workforce by continuing to acknowledge, appreciate, and respect the differences we recognize in one another. We must foster an inclusive environment that leverages the diverse backgrounds and perspectives of all our employees to drive a sustainable competitive advantage in our market. Cultivating an environment that is inclusive of all employees and respecting differences enriches our organization and contributes to our success.
