“Our Burlington” is the philosophy behind creating a supportive, results-driven, diverse and fun place for our associates to work, learn and grow. Our team lives “Our Burlington” every day, building on the fundamentals that:
We Are An Off-Price Retailer
We deliver great values to our customers every day. Our teams stay focused on executing the off-price model by ensuring we have the right product in the right stores at the right time for our customers.
We Live By Our Core Values
We Drive Results
Our fast-paced work place and culture allow us to continuously evolve the off-price model. We hold ourselves and each other accountable for our business success and have a shared sense of ownership to achieve our company goals.
We Trust & Respect Each Other
The way we do business is equally as important as the results we achieve. We have a shared commitment to conduct business ethically, and treat customers, business partners, and each other with trust and respect.
We Build Teams & Partnerships
Through collaborative teamwork, we solve complex business challenges together.
We Believe Everyone Matters
We listen to the individual viewpoints of our diverse workforce through open and honest communication. Our associates come from diverse backgrounds and offer unique perspectives on accomplishing our goals. Everyone’s contribution is valued.
We Win Together
We recognize those who make a difference. Great performance leads to exciting career opportunities, so as we grow, you do too.
At Burlington, we are continually expanding our learning and recognition programs to ensure that our associates feel rewarded and grow in their careers. Whether it’s an online e-course, one of our popular Lunch & Learn events, or an instructor-led classroom session, we are dedicated to providing our associates with the experiences, materials, and training needed to have a long and successful career.
We Are A Caring Company
We have a caring work environment, and the generosity of our associates and customers helps to improve the communities we live and work in and beyond. We know we can make the greatest impact by supporting causes that affect the lives of our associates, customers, and their families. Our charitable partnerships include the Warm Coats & Warm Hearts Drive, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, DonorsChoose.org and WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease. Burlington and our associates have raised millions for organizations that provide support to those in need.
Over the past five years we have conducted an annual “Your Voice” survey among our associates. The “Your Voice” survey results help us understand the associate experience, evaluate our performance, identify our strengths, and pinpoint areas of opportunity for improvement. Listening to our associates’ feedback and taking steps to create positive change in our organization are important parts of our mission to be an Employer-of-Choice.
Our most recent survey results indicate that over 70% of the more than 29,000 associates who participated would recommend Burlington as a great place to work! We aim to improve that number each year by acting on areas of improvement identified by our associates, ultimately striving to reach 100%!
Our goal is simple—to make diversity and inclusion an integral part of how we run our business, how we serve our customers and communities, and how we engage each other every day.
At Burlington, we don’t just talk about diversity, we live it. Our associates respect and celebrate what makes each of us different. Our business will thrive because we are committed to giving everyone the opportunity to become involved in exciting and challenging career opportunities and making an impact on our company.
We strive for diversity at all levels of our organization, and actively work toward this goal through partnership with several organizations. These include the Black Retail Action Group (BRAG), through which Burlington supports a scholarship program and celebrates the recipients at a gala event, and the Philadelphia chapter of the NAACP, through which we participate in a career event to engage candidates from diverse backgrounds.
Of our more than 30,000 associates, 74% are female and 70% are people of color. Within our management ranks, 64% percent of our team is female and 37% are people of color.
