For the second year in a row, let’s make some noise for United Natural Foods, Inc. (UNFI)! The distributor was recently recognized for its efforts to make a more inclusive workplace, nabbing the title of Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion for its top score of 100 in the 2022 Disability Equality Index® (DEI).

Guillaume Bagal, Vice President of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Wellbeing, United Natural Foods, Inc.“UNFI recognizes and commends all of our associates living with disabilities and those who are caregivers,” said Guillaume Bagal, Vice President of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Wellbeing at UNFI. “We are proud to be recognized as a DEI Top Scorer and Best Place to Work and for the progress we continue to make in this important area. But we are far from finished and are striving to further create space for disability education and awareness, eliminate stigma and misperception, ensure physical and psychological safety, and promote accessibility and advancement opportunities.”

The release noted UNFI is once again the only North American grocery wholesaler to achieve this score and recognition in 2023. In partnership with its associate-led DREAM group (Disability Resources, Equity, Allyship, and Mentoring), UNFI is working to advance inclusion in the workplace by fostering a culture of inclusion and empathy through open dialogue, effective associate training, and by honoring holidays and special events that speak to the identities of the company’s associates.

DEI was launched in 2015 by Disability:IN and The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) and is acknowledged today as one of the most robust disability inclusion assessment tools in business. Now in its eighth year, the DEI exists to help businesses make a positive impact on the unemployment and underemployment of people with disabilities.
