Employee Giving and Volunteerism

Every year, Express Scripts supports numerous companywide employee fundraising campaigns. In addition, when employees donate to eligible educational institutions, their gifts are matched by the Express Scripts Foundation.

Our employees are generous with their time, talent and treasure, and are encouraged to take an active role in supporting causes that align with our mission.

Diversity and Inclusion

At Express Scripts, our commitment to diversity and inclusion is fueled by the passion and unique abilities of our 26,000 employees — a mosaic of talent that enriches our culture and ultimately helps us better serve our patients.

Every day, we work hard to put medicine within reach for tens of millions of people. Because of this, it's important that our workforce reflects the diversity of the clients and patients we serve. When we respect and accept different backgrounds, beliefs, interests, convictions and ways of life only then can we all make contributions that will move the organization forward

As a company, we are proud to have a workforce that is 70% female and 40% minority. Additionally, over 45% of our leaders (director level or higher) are female and our commitment to diversity has been publicly recognized by the following:

-Human Rights Campaign Foundation, 100% on the 2017, 2018 and 2019 Corporate Equality Index

-US Business Leadership Network, 100% on the Disability Equality Index

-DiversityInc, 2018 Top 50 Company for Diversity

Equal Opportunity

We strive to support fair and equal opportunities for compensation and advancement within our diverse workforce. Consistent with our commitment to diversity and equality, our compensation programs are designed to prevent pay differences based on gender, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age, or disability of the person holding or applying for the position. Compensation and opportunity for advancement are based solely on scope of job, complexity, required knowledge, skill, ability and internal value of the job to our Company. In order to facilitate consistency of compensation among employees with similar performance in positions of similar scope and complexity, we regularly compare the compensation for any given position with market data based on multiple, nationally recognized compensation surveys. Initial offers for new hires and merit increases for current employees are designed to reflect the competitiveness of the external market, education, experience and internal equity.

Our Human Resources and Legal departments provide rigorous oversight of our compensation program through regular reporting and analysis. Any employee who feels that he or she may be the subject of unfair or discriminatory compensation practices is encouraged to contact our compliance hotline, where claims can be submitted anonymously and in any event, without fear of retribution.
