Diversity Drives UniFirst Corporation


12 Florida locations

#5 LARGE Company

“Having a diverse range of people across gender, age, and cultural background is invaluable to today’s businesses. With so many different and diverse minds working together, we are able to offer best-in-class services and solutions to our expanding customer base,” said Steven Sintros, the president and CEO of UniFirst after winning a diversity award from the TRSA, a professional organization dedicated to strengthening and promoting the linen, uniform, and facility services industry.

We feel we would be remiss by not addressing the Black Lives Matter Movement as we accept an award for one of the Best Places to Work for In Florida. Your color, sex, race and religion do not and should not impede your ability to find meaningful work.

The 2020 Black Lives Matter Movement is not an anti-white movement. Sure, all lives matter, but if that was the case, people would not be protesting the mistreatment of black people. They would not be marching for justice reform if all lives mattered. This is not an anti-police movement. This is an anti-police brutality movement. It is a call for justice reform and an end to systematic racism.

We can do better. We can be better. We strive to remove the veil of bias from our eyes and see people for who they tell us they are by their actions. We will recruit, develop and support the best people for the job.
