Creating a diverse
& inclusive culture

We believe in creating a workplace that reflects the world in which we live.

One of our core values, Stay Connected, is a tenet that focuses on the importance of diversity and inclusion, and encourages a more collaborative and creative environment for employees at all levels.

By ensuring our business and teams are representative of the unique and diverse culture in which we live, we can attract the best talent and best serve our customers in the diverse communities where we operate.

Employee safety & well-being

At La-Z-Boy, the safety and wellness of our employees is paramount to our culture. Through training, education and an extensive awareness program, we empower employees and leaders to help ensure everyone stays safe on the job. Two of our manufacturing locations have celebrated furniture industry leading milestones without a lost time incident.

One of the industry’s best

La-Z-Boy was recognized by the National Safety Council (NSC) with 10 awards for performance and leadership in safety, including the Corporate Safety Award.

This prestigious award honors select corporations that have demonstrated leadership and commitment to safety inside the workplace and in the community.

We recognize and thank our employees and leadership teams across the company for making safety a top priority every day. 

Supplier relations

A close, collaborative relationship with suppliers allows us to provide maximum value to our customers through competitive prices, high quality and world-class service. These relationships are reinforced at our annual La-Z-Boy Supplier Summit, where we recognize our best performing suppliers, share business updates, and roll-out new programs.

We also discuss the importance of environmental initiatives, working with suppliers to integrate sound and sustainable business practices that have an impact in their local communities as well as globally.

We believe that creating an atmosphere where employees and suppliers work well together is key to everyone’s success.
