Best Buy Diversity and Inclusion


01 Jul: Best Buy Scores 100% On Disability Equality Index

Best Buy has once again earned a perfect score of 100% on the Disability Equality Index (DEI), ranking among the leading companies on the list of Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion.

The DEI is a prominent benchmarking tool for Fortune 1000 companies and leading law firms to gauge their level of disability workplace inclusion against competitors. The criteria include culture and leadership, enterprisewide access, community engagement, supplier diversity and employment practices, such as benefits, recruitment and retention.

At Best Buy, we believe that an accessible and inclusive workplace is vital to attracting and retaining the best talent and to delivering a great employee experience.
