Marketplace

To succeed in this dynamic world, a diversity of ideas, innovation and a focus on solutions are critically important. To achieve this goal we must model inclusion in the management of our teams.

We are committed to understanding and meeting the needs of our clients and the markets they serve. At RRD, we also recognize new opportunities on the supply side of our business. Inclusion is driven through intentional partnerships with minority- and women-owned suppliers (MWBEs). These suppliers help us be a stronger company:

  • A company that is faster and more flexible company
  • A company that values a marketplace of changing demographics and new technologies
  • A company that offers a comprehensive range of communications services

RRD has a robust supplier diversity initiative with staff dedicated to strategy development and program management. Our programs include:

  • Developing opportunities for and buying from minority- and women-owned businesses
  • Partnering with select MWBEs to help increase their capacity to provide goods and services purchased by RRD and other companies
  • Increasing opportunities for MWBEs in the printing industry

Our spending with this diverse business community in the past three years exceeds $250 million. While we are pleased with our progress, we are not satisfied. We continue to set goals to identify new, incremental business opportunities for our MWBE supply chain partners.

We will continue to report our MWBE utilization to clients and to identify and develop MWBE suppliers, cultivating relationships with these businesses and measuring our progress.

RRD is an active corporate member of the National Minority Supplier Development Council and the Women's Business Enterprise National Council.

Workplace

Our goal for workplace inclusion is to make RRD a place where every employee feels they belong. Whether you're a new employee, have an open door concern, are applying for a new job in the company, are seeking a mentor or sponsor, transferring to another location, leading a new team, learning a new application or how to run a piece of equipment, in whatever place you find yourself in RRD, in whatever role you have or are aspiring to have, we want you to feel that YOU belong.

To do this, we prioritize a culture where differences are valued, respected, appreciated and everyone is empowered to contribute. With our focus on inclusion, we make it clear that every individual must take personal responsibility to think and act in a way that includes and values others.

Lasting sustainable changes are created by integrating inclusion into the policies, practices and processes that govern our relationships with our employees and business partners, our position in the marketplace and our outreach to communities.

We have several initiatives that specifically support the recruitment, integration, and retention of diverse talent and suppliers, and we track our results to ensure accountability. Workplace initiatives include:

External Relationships

We actively support and/or partner with organizations that focus on recruitment, professional development, and advancement of diverse talent:

  • The Consortium of Latino Employee Organizations (CLEO). CLEO is a roundtable consisting of Latino Employee Resource Group leaders at Chicago area corporations who meet for networking and professional development.
  • Catalyst. Catalyst is the leading nonprofit membership organization working globally with businesses and professionals to build inclusive workplaces and expand opportunities for women and business.
  • Empowering Women Network (EWN). EWN is a professional development organization dedicated to the advancement of women.
  • National Diversity Council (NDC). The mission of the NDC is to be both a resource and an advocate for the value of diversity and inclusion. The NDC serves as the umbrella organization to support our statewide and regional affiliates, which foster an understanding of diversity and inclusion as a dynamic strategy for business success and community well-being through various initiatives.

The common denominator to our innovation: extraordinary people.

It's not often that you get the opportunity to join a large company at the formative level, make meaningful contributions and ultimately be a part of something truly unique. We’re in. Are you?
