We’re committed to creating a more inclusive future, both inside our company and in our communities.
Inclusion and diversity are the heart and soul of Best Buy.
Best Buy’s purpose is to enrich lives through technology, and we know we can’t do that without an inclusive culture and diverse employees who reflect our customers. We also aim to positively impact our communities by providing access to teens in need and providing college scholarships for diverse students.
At my core, I believe our people are the secret to our success. It is my responsibility as CEO to unleash their power by nurturing a diverse and inclusive environment, one in which employees can bring their whole selves – their best selves – to work each day.
– Best Buy CEO Corie Barry
We’ve set major goals for how we recruit, hire and retain our employees.
We’re also fostering inclusion among all employee groups to create parity in retention rates, including transforming our senior leadership ranks to be more in line with our board of directors.
We’re providing tech access to teens in need in communities across the country.
As part of those efforts, we’re building a network of 100 Best Buy Teen Tech Centers, provide safe, after-school learning environments equipped with cutting-edge technology. Youth learn new skills, stay on-track with school, nurture positive adult and peer relationships, and prepare for the careers of the future.
We’re providing college scholarships for diverse students nationwide.
Together with the United Negro College Fund and University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management, we’re aiming to make a college degree more accessible for students, including those who were active participants at a Best Buy Teen Tech Center.
