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

"Fastenal’s focus on reducing supply chain resource use (versus just price) naturally aligns the goals of our organization, our customers, and investors. A good example is vending. Vending helps customers reduce wasteful consumption, while also providing a clear sight line to customer demand, enabling our teams to manage the supply chain more efficiently (with fewer ad hoc orders and, in turn, fewer miles driven to transport product).” Read Dan Florness's full letter here.

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

“Advancement within the organization is based on hard work and execution of performance expectations. Our internal promotion pathway is a great incentive for those with the determination and motivation to be successful, to develop and mentor co-workers, and to model our cultural values.  It is also transparent, fair, and consistent; if it weren’t, our leadership wouldn’t be respected."  Read Reyne Wisecup's full letter here.
