Aligned to Serve Customers and Preserve Our Planet
An important part of protecting our Blue Planet is our people. Without their unwavering commitment to the planet and our customers, we wouldn’t be able to do all that we do every day. We’re focused on attracting and retaining talented professionals that are just as committed to the environment as our company and our customers and we motivate them through meaningful and rewarding careers.
Diversity & Inclusion
We are actively and intentionally creating an environment in which all individuals are welcomed and valued. In 2013, we launched MOSAIC (Mission of Supporting an Inclusive Culture) as our renewed approach to diversity and inclusion. Through MOSAIC, we have developed new strategies and activities to continue creating a more diverse workforce and inclusive work environment. In this way, we can leverage our best thinking to improve our culture and better serve our customers and planet. Republic Services is an equal opportunity employer (Español). We make all employment decisions without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, genetic testing or any other classification protected by law.
