HOME > ABOUT ACOSTA > Culture
Acosta is proud to foster a corporate culture that is empowering, inclusive and responsible.
As Acosta has grown, one thing has never changed: the values that influence, inform and inspire everything we do. These seven values drive our behavior — as individuals and as a company.
Each year during our Chairman's Award program, we invite our associates, clients and customers to nominate Acosta associates who have demonstrated these values through their work. We select, spotlight and reward the 150 best examples.
Acosta Sales & Marketing is an Equal Opportunity Employer M/F/D/V and complies with all federal and state laws prohibiting employment discrimination. Acosta is committed to providing equal opportunity in all of our employment practices, including but not limited to selection, hiring, promotion, transfer, and compensation to all qualified applicants and associates without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, citizenship status, age, marital status, pregnancy or any other characteristic or status protected by law. We understand that it is only through our differences that we are able to truly build a strong company — one with a range of perspectives and ideas that come together to create more innovative solutions. We also understand how important it is that our workforce reflects the diversity of our markets and consumers.
Our commitment goals to diversity regardless of content are to support the true representation of the environments in which we operate. We strive to create culturally diverse networks of inspired and skilled associates. We also promise to design and promote positive attitudes, beliefs and understanding toward equality. These principles will be based on respect and appreciation of individual ideas no matter the difference. We believe that when talented associates, from a wide range of backgrounds combine a variety of ideas, our clients and customers will benefit and thrive based on our commitment to inclusion.
At Acosta we believe that diversity in our associates and our business relationships brings richness and strength to the services we provide to our clients and customers. Our commitment to diversity extends to our suppliers, where we strive to increase opportunities for ethnic minorities and women-owned businesses to accelerate their growth with Acosta.
Diversity is embedded into our strategic procurement processes; we maintain a database of qualified diverse suppliers, and include diversity in our sourcing and procurement efforts whenever possible.
For more than 80 years, Acosta has been dedicated to conducting business with integrity, caring for our communities and respecting our environment. Through sustainability initiatives, Acosta endeavors to be a responsible corporate steward of the environment and, whenever possible, encourages eco-friendly business practices.
