Our Culture Defines Our Brand

We’re inspired by our surroundings, and that inspiration shows in our work—both in and out of the office. Our culture is formed by who we are, what we do, and why we do it—as individuals and as a team. 

Social Responsibility

Macy’s thinks well above the bottom line about our impact on the environment and the people inhabiting it.

  • That’s why we’re proud to be named one of Newsweek Magazine’s 500 Greenest Companies in America.
  • That’s also why we take accountability for our product sourcing, calling for a strict code of ethics with suppliers.

As a Fortune 200 company, we understand we have power to make a positive impact. Head over to macysgreenliving.com to see all things Macy’s and sustainability. And check out our Report on Social Responsibility to learn more.

Community Involvement

We all want to do more for our community, but let’s be honest—we already have a full plate with work and life. When you work at macys.com, you don’t have to choose one over the other. Opportunities to get involved with your community are everywhere you look.

From funding for arts and education, HIV/AIDS research and awareness, and women’s issues to supporting associate giving and volunteerism, we know these issues are important to the communities of our customers and employees. They’re also important to us.


Each of us comes to the table with different backgrounds and unique perspectives to challenge and inspire each other; that’s how we learn and grow. When we have a diverse workforce and marketplace, we have a strong business.

The bottom line on Macy’s diversity:

  • Women represent more than 75 percent of the Macy’s, Inc. workforce and more than 65 percent of management-level executives.
