We drive forward, together.

Schneider is comprised of safe, courteous, hustling associates who deliver superior experiences that excite our customers. We live out that mission with full commitment to our core values, which include respect for all, and which characterize how we and our associates do business. Our history has taught us that treating everyone with dignity and respect is vital to our ongoing success.

No matter your starting point, our destination is the same

At Schneider, we believe diversity fuels innovation, improves strategic thinking, and cultivates leadership. That’s why 'Respect for All' is one of our four core values. We embrace and seek out diversity that is inclusive of thought, race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, experience, and background.

In 2020, we reaffirmed our commitment to our associates, customers, stakeholders, and communities with our statement on diversity, equality, and inclusion: we drive forward, together.

Culture

  • We are driven by our uncompromising Core Values of Safety, Integrity, Respect and Excellence to deliver the goods that enhance the lives of people everywhere
  • Actively seek diversity of thought, experience and background for projects and programs
  • We strive to create a culture that supports and enables the needs of our diverse associates (e.g., space for prayer/meditation, nursing mothers, etc.)
  • We offer flexible work arrangements

We foster an inclusive workplace culture through:

  • Incorporating a diversity competency component in the performance management process for our leadership and associates.
  • All Schneider leaders completing the unconscious bias training in 2020 and all remaining associates completing the training in 2021.
  • Establishing Cultural Connections, an internal group committed to educating ourselves and coworkers on topics that pertain to who we are — inclusive of thought, race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, experience, ability, and background.
  • Partnering with Women in Trucking (WIT), a non-profit organization whose mission is to encourage the employment of and minimize obstacles faced by women in the trucking industry.
  • Partnering with AARP to empower people as they age. We are proud to pledge our support for the AARP Pledge Program, an AARP program designed specifically for mature workers.

We are ensuring our associates reflect the communities in which we work and live through:

  • Supporting the Military Apprenticeship Program (MAP), a 12-month program between the U.S. Department of Labor, Department of Veteran Affairs and Schneider to provide a way for service members to learn a new trade while using their GI Bill benefits.
  • Hiring Schneider’s first Campus Diversity Recruiter to ensure our talent pipeline is inclusive and accessible.
  • Continuing to target our recruitment efforts to attract diverse talent and implementing technology for blind recruiting to mask applications and prevent biased hiring decisions based on a candidate’s details related to gender, age and ethnicity.
