Life at UPS IT
From a Seattle basement in 1907 to an expansive worldwide operation, UPS has always placed value on people as our greatest resource. It’s not enough to hire people who are good at their jobs. Our people are committed to making a difference in the world, however they are able to.
- Diversity & Inclusion
As a global company, we believe our culture (and business) benefits greatly from fostering a diverse and inclusive environment. That’s why we so strongly embrace the unique ideas and philosophies of our people who live and work in more than 220 countries and territories worldwide. Understanding their cultural backgrounds helps UPS to better serve our customers’ needs and in turn, improves our economic and social sustainability.
Our Employee Diversity & Inclusion Strategy represents our commitment to creating an environment where all employees feel valued, respected and fully engaged to contribute to our future success. In support of that strategy, UPS’ definition of diversity extends beyond race, age and gender to also include differences in ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, education, religion, physical ability, values, backgrounds and experiences.
- The Logistics of Caring
UPS founder Jim Casey established The UPS Foundation in 1951 with a mission to help build stronger and more resilient communities around the world. That’s exactly what we've been doing for more than 60 years now.
To us, giving means more than just writing a check. It means combining employees' skills, passion and time with our logistics expertise, transportation assets and charitable donations to make a measurable difference in society. In 2013, we invested over 1.8 million volunteer hours and more than $100 million dollars into our global communities.
As our communities continue to grow and evolve, so do we. The Foundation's current philanthropic approach focuses on four areas that represent the purpose of our mission and reflect UPS's corporate values and expertise.
