Schnucks Ranks Among Greatest Workplaces For Diversity

Schnucks has been recognized as one of America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity 2024 by Newsweek and Plant-A Insights Group. 

The survey of more than 220,000 people included representation at more than 1.5 million companies in America. 

“Diversity is a widely discussed topic – and it remains a crucial factor as people look for an employer or a business partner,” said Nancy Cooper, global editor and chief of Newsweek

“Newsweek and market-data research firm Plant-A Insights are proud to introduce America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity 2024, highlighting companies that are committed to offering a diverse and inclusive work environment.”

In 2020, Schnucks launched its diversity, equity and inclusion plan, Unity Is Power. Internally, UIP is focused on creating a workplace where all teammates regardless of background are welcome and feel valued. Externally, it focuses on efforts to increase community support for organizations and vendors that promote racial equity. 

Last year, the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis honored Schnucks with the Civic Leadership Award for these efforts. 

“Our diversity, equity and inclusion efforts are more than just words on paper. It’s how we celebrate our differences and learn from each other’s experiences and how we serve the numerous communities in which we operate,” said Emma Lumpkins, Schnucks’ senior director of diversity, equity and inclusion. 

“It’s also nourishing people’s lives by providing a welcoming work environment to our nearly 12,000 teammates whose efforts make it possible for our customers to feed their families.” 

Schnucks also recently launched a diverse-owned business accelerator program, Schnucks Springboard, to provide education, resources and access to local diverse-owned businesses.
