At Upbound, we believe that all of our coworkers, customers and communities have unique stories, experiences and aspirations. Together, they span a wide range of global cultures and historical backgrounds that makes us stronger by combining our diverse perspectives.
Inclusion is not only what we practice, it’s at the heart of our values and what keeps our company growing. We are a better company when we unite the diverse voices of our coworkers, customers and communities.
At Rent-A-Center, our approach to evolving our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) efforts is to expand our culture with an awareness around the meaning of DEI what it means to us as an organization.
As we continue to establish our DEI mission at RAC, take a look at what some of our coworkers have to say on why diversity and inclusion is so important to them in our new DEI Video.WATCH VIDEO
To create an inclusive and equitable environment that harnesses the power of diverse thought and experiences which help to leverage and sustain a workplace where all coworkers contribute to our success.
One of our most successful ways of fostering diversity and inclusion is through the ongoing support of our Executive Diversity Council and our Coworker Resource Groups (CRGs). They include: Black Professional CRG, Hispanic CRG and Women CRG.
Rent-A-Center’s Executive Diversity Council believes that increasing diversity and fostering a culture of inclusion among our coworkers begins by senior leaders setting the tone at the top of the company. We believe that increasing diversity and fostering a culture of inclusion at Rent-A-Center will help in our Mission to improve the quality of life of our coworkers and ultimately our customers. We will hold each other and all other leaders in the company accountable for building a more diverse, equitable and inclusive company.
Coworker Resource Groups are voluntary, coworker-led groups aiming to foster a diverse, inclusive workplace aligned with the organizations they serve.
They are led and participated in by coworkers who share a characteristic, whether it’s race, ethnicity, gender, lifestyle or interest. The groups exist to provide support and help in personal or career development and to create a safe space where coworkers can bring their whole selves. Allies may also be invited to join the CRG to support their colleagues.
