Social

At Kohl’s, our purpose — to inspire and empower families to lead fulfilled lives — guides how we work with partners, how we approach philanthropy, how we consider the environment, and how we touch the lives of our customers, associates, and communities. We work toward fulfilling our purpose by living our values every day: Put Customers First, Act with Integrity, Build Great Teams and Drive Results. Keeping our purpose in mind is core not only to our business results, but how we achieve them. As a purpose-led organization, we strive to make a difference in the communities nationwide that our customers, associates and shareholders call home.

Living a fulfilled and healthy life is different for each and every one of us. Understanding and embracing those differences for Kohl’s customers, associates, and communities is not just the right thing to do, but critical to driving growth for the organization. We are committed to creating a culture where everyone belongs, where diversity and inclusion drive innovation and business results while enabling associates and customers to be their authentic selves every single day.

To that end, we are passionate about fostering a best-in-class workplace that celebrates transparency, opportunity and appreciation. We uphold ethical standards for ourselves and our partners to maintain fair business practices. We support our communities through charitable giving and volunteer efforts.
