TJX is a terrific place to work. For nearly 40 years, TJX has provided apparel and home fashions to our customers, all at amazing values. The merchandise we sell is just part of the story. We fully appreciate that it is our Associates who bring our business to life.
Over the years, we have taken great care to continue expanding our global organization in a way that perpetuates the values upon which our culture is based. Our Associates embody our core values of honesty, integrity and caring, and lead by example, thereby helping to maintain our special culture at the heart of the Company. While it’s true that our flexible business model sets us apart, we believe it is our Company’s culture that keeps us together. Just as our stores have no walls between departments, our Company culture functions in the same way. We foster open communication and collaboration as Associates work toward common goals, with an emphasis on creating and delivering value for our customers.
United in Our Differences
We live and work in cities, suburbs and rural communities from Anaheim, California, U.S. to Warsaw, Poland to Sydney, Australia. We believe each one of our Associates brings something unique to our collective culture – a diversity of experience, gender, ethnicity, age, viewpoint and more. At TJX, diversity isn’t something we mark off of a checklist; it’s something we celebrate in many ways!
We are proud that globally, 77% of our total workforce – corporate, store, managerial and non-managerial – is female. And in the U.S., 55% of our total workforce and 32% of our U.S. management team are made up of people of color.1
A Collaborative Environment
We expect our Associates to work hard, challenge themselves and be innovative in their thinking. But we also know that when our Associates feel connected, respected and included, it shows in their performance. That’s why we strive to create a supportive, stimulating environment, where sharing ideas is encouraged and a work/life balance is attainable.
We are pleased to have been recognized for our efforts by organizations like the Human Rights Campaign in the U.S., Great Place to Work in Canada, and Glassdoor in the U.K., among many other organizations.
Lifelong Learning Takes Shape Here
We are proud that we get the opportunity to foster careers for so many people. Many of our Associates accept a job with us and then stay to build a meaningful career. We’re fortunate to have Associates who have been with us for 20 to 30 years or more, and this expertise and experience is invaluable to us. Fresh ideas and different points of view are also invaluable. So, we foster both at TJX. We value our seasoned Associates, and we seek to attract new talent. We encourage both our long-term and new Associates to listen to, learn from and teach each other about our values and our off-price business.
An impressive 35% of our global management team1 has worked here for more than 10 years. At the same time, we recruit hundreds of new Associates every year into our management development programs to support our future growth.
