Today we recognize Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a federal holiday that celebrates the life and achievements of the influential civil rights leader. This day honors the impact Dr. King had and continues to have by encouraging acceptance and treating all people with dignity and respect.
Martin Luther King Jr. famously said, “The time is always right to do what is right.” His message was one of love, kindness and inclusion.
It’s a message that we value every day at Republic Services, as we prioritize being inclusive of our employees’ varied backgrounds, ideas, experiences and skills. Whether it’s joining a business resource group, asking for someone’s opinion, or reaching out to a new coworker, there are opportunities for all of us to continue the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. and help make Republic a workplace where everyone feels welcome and valued.
