Strategies that build on differences to form a stronger organization.

RRD aims to build strong and lasting relationships with diverse partners in the workplace, marketplace and community.

Vision. Mission. Commitment.

RRD values diversity and inclusion to build a high performance culture that attracts and retains the best talent, excels in the new world of business and helps our customers succeed.

  • Vision


    Diversity and Inclusion is a critical part of our culture, driving business success and ensuring that all our employees feel they belong at RRD. Our customers, suppliers, and communities benefit from the wealth of ideas, innovations and focused solutions our diversity creates.

  • Mission


    Create and sustain an actively inclusive environment that embraces, respects and leverages the diversity of our employees, customers, suppliers and communities.

  • Commitment


    Our commitment is to ensure that everything we do advances our vision and mission.

We strive to create a workplace in which behaviors, practices & policies promote respect, inclusion, utilization, career development & success across all forms of diversity.


To succeed in this dynamic world, we need a diversity of ideas, innovation and a focus on solutions. The way we do that is to make inclusion the model for how we manage our people.

Customer insight is one of our core values. We are committed to understanding and meeting the needs of our customers and the markets they serve. At RRD, we also recognize new opportunities on the supply side of our business. Inclusion is about working with minority- and woman-owned suppliers (MWBEs). These suppliers can help us become a different kind of company:

  • A faster, more flexible company
  • A company that values a marketplace of changing demographics and new technologies
  • A company that offers not just printing services, but also a comprehensive range of communications services

RRD has the most robust supplier diversity initiative in the print industry 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.

Further, we plan to benchmark ourselves against the best companies across all industry groups. We will continue to report our MWBE utilization to customers 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.


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're creating 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.

At RRD, lasting sustainable changes are being 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:
