Workforce


Sysco is proud of the significant and growing presence of women and people of color in our workforce — over one quarter of our employees are people of color, and one fifth are women. Our talented professionals from all backgrounds view Sysco as a place of unlimited opportunity where they can make a difference and rise to the top.

Sysco S.T.E.P. (System to Entry-Level Promotion) is an independent-study program designed to provide motivated associates with basic training on key management concepts, while introducing them to leadership behaviors required of supervisors and district sales managers. The S.T.E.P. program has been an outstanding asset in our mission to improve inclusion at every level, and participation in the program continues to grow each year.

In order to build a truly diverse workforce, particularly among our Sales, Operations and Transportation associates, Sysco actively recruits the very best candidates from a wide variety of backgrounds and regions.
