Our Team Schein Members (TSMs) are the cornerstone of our company, and the key to unlocking our potential. Our identity and success as a business is built on TSM engagement, commitment, skills, creativity and teamwork. We aim to provide our team with purposeful, rewarding careers where they can contribute to social, economic, and environmental value.
Henry Schein embraces and celebrates the diversity of our workforce, our customers, the patients they serve, our stockholders, our supplier partners, the communities in which the Company operates, and society at large. We include their voices in the decisions we make. For more information on our Diversity & Inclusion mission, please visit here.
Personal and professional development of our TSMs is important to us. As such, Henry Schein invests in our TSMs by providing formal and informal learning opportunities that are dedicated to growing and enhancing knowledge, skills, and abilities.
Talent Planning efforts are an integral part of Henry Schein's intention to ensure a strong leadership pipeline across the organization and are key to enabling the engagement, development, and retention of TSMs. Executive education, mentoring, and coaching programs also play an important part of our development and career support initiatives. All programming has a strong focus on ensuring a culture of inclusivity keeping in mind unique perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences.
We have a commitment to health and safety in the workplace, and a holistic approach to wellness. We have a Physical Security Policy in place, which guides our performance across all Henry Schein operations, supported by our safety rules and other guidance material. The policy and the supporting safety rules seek to ensure that consistent safety standards and practices are followed in all distribution centers and offices.
These relate to the reporting of safety-related incidents, general housekeeping and safety, PPE, fire safety, mobile equipment operation, and dress standards. They help us promote and foster a safe working environment and to minimize the occurrence of accidents and safety-related incidents in the workplace.
Dedicated training strengthens our approach. Safety training is conducted at the distribution centers to TSMs operating forklifts and those who may have contact with chemicals and spills.
Our culture is built on the belief that every person is as important as the next. This "Team Schein" culture is integral to our business and at the core of our Team Schein Community Service initiatives. Just as our Company as a whole focuses on corporate citizenship, each Team Schein Member (TSM) is encouraged to embrace community service and outreach on a personal level.
Team Schein Members are involved in numerous and diverse volunteer activities, including Back to School and Holiday Cheer for Children, two of our flagship corporate-sponsored programs. Meanwhile, around the world, our TSMs actively volunteer in their hometowns and give back to the charities of their choice.
