At Giant Eagle, we are fiercely committed to making our workplace and communities healthier and more inclusive. We greatly appreciate any recognition our company and our amazing Team Members receive for these efforts. We believe that these acknowledgments serve as evidence that we are headed in the right direction to grow as an organization and as people, and they motivate us to strive for more progress.
2023 "Best Place to Work" for Disability Inclusion
For two years in a row, Giant Eagle has earned the designation as a "Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion" by the Disability Equality Index. Some categories that we excelled in are benefits and community engagement. We also did well in culture and recruitment.
This recognition affirms our commitment to building an inclusive, equitable and diverse culture, but our work is never done. Completing the index helped us find areas we can improve. We will continue to dedicate ourselves to helping every Team Member feel that they belong in our community and can thrive at Giant Eagle.
2022 "Best Place to Work" for LGBTQ+ Equality
For two years in a row, Giant Eagle earned the designation as a “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality” in the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index, a national benchmark for policies and procedures that affect LGBTQ+ Team Members. The CEI measures corporate policies and practices concerning Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Team Members. We’re proud to be recognized as a company that goes above and beyond to foster a work environment in which everybody can feel safe, comfortable and welcome. However, the true recognition belongs to the Team Members at every level of the organization for their day-to-day commitment to equality.
2021 "Power of Work Award (Hire Category)" from Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania
Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania chose Giant Eagle as a "2021 Power of Work Award" winner in the Hire Category, which honors businesses that are opening their doors and improving the lives of people who are differently abled and/or face other challenges by offering them work or work-related experiences.
Recently, we hired nine Goodwill candidates from six Goodwill programs. One of the hires was a participant in Goodwill's UPMC Project SEARCH program who was hired into a position in the floral department. As she learned the job it became evident that, due to her height, some of the tasks posed safety risks to her. We identified other tasks for her to do that suited her friendly, outgoing personality while allowing her to continue doing some of the original tasks that she enjoyed and could do safely. She’s been successful in her new position with these accommodations!
