Retail Business Services President Roger Wheeler has joined the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion, the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion within the workplace. In signing the commitment, Wheeler joins the growing coalition of more than 1,500 CEOs pledging to cultivate workplace environments where diverse experiences and perspectives are welcomed and where associates feel comfortable and empowered to discuss diversity and inclusion.
RBS is the services company of Ahold Delhaize USA.
“At Retail Business Services, we hold ourselves accountable for fostering an environment where all associates feel welcome and know they work for a company where they belong,” Wheeler said. “In joining the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion, we are continuing to care for and support our associates by taking one more step in the right direction. I am proud to be a part of an organization that is committed to creating a work environment where our associates can openly address challenges, present opportunities and share perspectives in meaningful ways that will lead to lasting change.”
As a signatory of the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion, RBS is dedicated to working collaboratively to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace, and in turn, improve corporate performance, drive growth and enhance employee engagement. To promote conversation, engagement and collaboration among organizations, the company is joining fellow signatories in committing to four actions:
- Continue to cultivate workplaces that support open dialogue on complex and sometimes difficult conversations about diversity and inclusion;
- Implement and expand unconscious bias education;
- Share best known – and unsuccessful – actions; and
