Diversity & Inclusion

INCREASING THE DIVERSITY OF OUR WORKFORCE AND LEADERS

US Foods® is committed to cultivating a diverse workforce built upon wide-ranging perspectives, unique experiences and a multitude of backgrounds and identities. Through multifaceted recruiting and training efforts, we strive to attract and develop a pipeline of diverse talent to maximize the strength of our teams and provide the highest quality service for our customers every day.

RECRUITING AND SUPPORTING DIVERSE TALENT

Over the past several years, we have been working to increase the diversity of our director-level and above leadership roles through accelerated development programs for diverse associates and expanded external recruiting partnerships to reach more diverse candidates. We have also enhanced our hiring process to require diverse candidate slates for leadership roles and introduced unconscious bias training for leaders. Moving forward, our goal is to fill 40% of our new or open leadership roles with diverse candidates.

TRAINING And PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Through training, mentoring, e-learning, on-the-job development and professional development opportunities, we help all of our associates learn and grow, while building a pipeline of diverse talent. Our signature leadership development programs include:

  • Gateway to Leadership, for new people managers
  • Aspire to Grow and Aspire to Lead, for high-potential leaders at different stages of their career

Learning Partners Program

Our Learning Partners mentoring program matches diverse, high-potential US Foods leaders (mentees) with senior leaders (mentors), facilitating one-on-one, two-way learning and helping prepare diverse leaders for career advancement.
