Social Performance: Team Schein and Community Engagement

Our Team Schein Members (TSMs) make Henry Schein what it is. Their skills, expertise, diversity, creativity, commitment, and teamwork ensure that we make progress every day in running a successful business, meeting our customers' needs, supporting our communities, and creating value for our shareholders.

Creating meaningful employment is one of the most significant ways that business contributes to the livelihoods of individuals and communities. Today's socially conscious employees want purposeful, rewarding careers that contribute social, economic, and environmental value. It is in our interest, as well as that of our teams and the wider society, that we create a working culture that respects and includes, collaborates and innovates, energizes and inspires, educates and adapts, leads and empowers, and enables us to respond to our stakeholders needs.

We are building a stronger baseline of high-level accountability and governance for key risks and opportunities of importance to Henry Schein and our stakeholders.

Our Company's steadfast commitment to ethical corporate governance starts with our strong, largely independent Board comprised of five Committees.

"We believe that our high standards of ethical conduct have been one of the keys to why we excel in our business."
