Associates Bring Our Business To Life


We fully appreciate that our Associates bring our business to life, and we aim to support them by making TJX a terrific place to work. It’s very important for us to attract talented individuals, teach them our off-price model, and support their careers. We are also very proud of our culture and are committed to our core values of honesty, integrity, and treating each other with dignity and respect. In fact, developing talent and championing our culture are global business priorities year in and year out. We believe this encourages Associates to join us not just to find a job, but to build a career.

Inclusion and diversity have long been a priority at TJX, and we are continuing our work to do more and be better.

The diversity of our Associates makes us a stronger Company and better able to serve our broad and diverse base of customers around the world. We strive for an inclusive workplace where our Associates feel welcome when they walk in the door; valued for their diversity of thought, background, and experience; and engaged with our mission to provide value to our customers. Our programming is grounded in the understanding that inclusion welcomes a range of differing opinions and perspectives. Our decades-long, open door philosophy not only supports, but encourages this. We embrace that our workforce encompasses people of different races, ethnicities, ages, sexual orientations, gender identities, abilities, experiences, religions, and much more, who come together to move our business forward.

As a business, we do not tolerate discrimination or hate of any kind. In addition to our ongoing work to support inclusion and diversity across many underrepresented populations, in 2020, we made a commitment to expand our efforts in support of equity and racial justice. We stand with our Black Associates, customers, and communities. We believe every one of us can play a part in helping to build a better world, where justice, fairness, and dignity are upheld as basic human rights.

We invite you to visit the Inclusion and Diversity and Our Communities pages of our website to learn more about our approach and the initiatives we have underway.1
