Diverse Perspectives Make Us Stronger
'Together' may well be the most important word in our company's Vision Statement because it conveys our commitment to collaboration, diversity, and inclusion. At Owens & Minor, we know we cannot accomplish our goals unless we work together—together with our manufacturer and provider customers, and our talented, diverse group of teammates.
Our company highly values the diverse perspectives of our manufacturer and provider customers, our business partners, and our teammates. We insist on inclusion, support, and respect. We nurture, engage, and empower those around us. We invest in and participate as active members of the larger, global communities in which we live and work.
At Owens & Minor, we believe that the power of collaboration helps make healing happen for the patients our customers serve.
Owens & Minor allows you to improve and discover your career path by encouraging cross-training, job rotation, and special projects/assignments. I have the ability to connect with teammates in Virginia and all the way to China. It is great working for a global company.Tamara Thornton

Our Business Runs on Diverse Relationships
Diversity is important in everything we do. Our business is fueled by diverse relationships, and valuing others is a core element of our success. We operate with integrity so that our words, our work, and our people can be relied upon as trustworthy and steady. We make sound business decisions using the best information and best suppliers available, with a continual focus on quality for our customers and value for our shareholders.
This integrated philosophy relies in part on a robust supplier diversity initiative. Owens & Minor leads the industry by diversity spend as a percentage of private label revenue, and a significant portion of our MediChoice® brand of products is sourced from diverse medical-surgical companies.
