Grainger earns high score on Disability Equality Index
METTAWA - Grainger earned a 90-percent score on the 2020 Disability Equality Index and the designation as one of the "Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion" for the fourth consecutive year.
The DEI is a national, transparent benchmarking tool that offers businesses an opportunity to self-report disability inclusion policies and practices. It was developed by the American Association of People with Disabilities and Disability:IN, in consultation with an appointed advisory committee comprised of a diverse group of experts in business, policy and disability advocacy.
"Being recognized as a top-scoring company for the fourth straight year holds a special significance as we celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act," said Paige Robbins, Grainger senior vice president; chief technology, marketing, strategy and merchandising officer; and executive sponsor of Grainger's Disability Business Resource Group.
"Grainger is committed to fostering an environment where everyone feels welcomed, valued and able to make the most of their talents," Robbins added.
