Becoming an Employer of Choice

Nov 22, 2017 9:00 AM ET

Whether it’s providing training, the right tools and resources for the job, growth and development opportunities or celebrating achievements, at Republic Services, we believe in making our people feel welcomed and valued. We believe this brings out the very best in our people and it attracts the best possible outside talent. It is why we have become an employer of choice.

When employees are engaged, it means that they are in alignment with the company’s vision, mission and values – it means they enjoy their job, where they work, their coworkers and they are motivated to achieve goals that represent a shared “higher purpose.”

Together, we are leading the way within our industry, and receiving notable recognition for our sustainability achievements.
