Social Responsibility

 

Fastenal’s founders started our company with a few closely-held beliefs – a commitment to philanthropy, a respect for the unique humanness of each individual, and a relentless focus on not wasting anything. Our business has grown and changed dramatically over the years, but those beliefs still guide our practices today, from how we source, package and distribute products, to how we foster equity and opportunity among employees, to how we give back to the communities we serve. At Fastenal, social responsibility isn’t just a series of ‘boxes’ to check – it’s an essential part of who we are.

ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL, AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE PERSPECTIVES FROM THE CEO'S DESK; Dan Florness

"We are an organization that prioritizes employee empowerment through decentralized decision-making and a promote from within culture, and whose core strategy involves the reduction of resource consumption in our customers supply chains. As noted in last year's letter, we believe these principles create a natural alignment of Fastenal's growth goals with the environmental and human capital priorities of our stakeholders.

LABOR PRACTICES AND WORKFORCE DIVERSITY SUMMARY; Reyne Wisecup, Senior Executive Vice President - Human Resources

"When our customers needed help navigating a dark and uncertain period, the Blue Team stepped up to provide solutions and support. The pandemic of 2020 changed many things for everyone, but it also brought heightened focus to the character of our teams: They are resilient, they selflessly serve customers, and they support one another in ways that are typically unseen, but were unveiled by this tragedy. The teamwork displayed was inspiring to witness."  Read Reyne Wisecup's full 2021 letter here.
