The People Factor: How Diversity and Development are Shaping FedEx
by Kelly Gray
People are at the heart of FedEx. We’re in the business of connecting people, and we couldn’t do that successfully without the dedication of the hundreds of thousands of people within FedEx. That’s why we strive to create an environment where our team members can contribute and grow and where the values of diversity are woven throughout the organization. This starts with an inclusive culture. After all, different perspectives are critical to business success.
As a global company, FedEx employs 325,000 team members worldwide in more than 220 countries. They’re from different backgrounds and practice their own unique cultural traditions. They speak different languages but they all have one thing in common: They’re FedEx team members.
As Senior Vice President of Human Resources for FedEx Ground, Kelly Gray oversees all aspects of human resource initiatives and support for the company. Her responsibilities include setting the strategic direction for workforce planning and development for the more than 70,000 team members that make up FedEx Ground. FedEx Ground is a leading provider of ground small-package delivery services delivering over 4 million packages a day throughout the United States and Canada.
