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

Diversity is an important enabler of our inclusive company culture, and we gain strength from the amazing tapestry of employee perspectives and experiences. Diversity goes beyond surface human characteristics – fundamentally, we’re all diverse in our backgrounds, beliefs and interests, and in how we think, work and live. Because we embrace diversity and inclusion, employees can be honest and open about who they are, and can bring their “whole self” to work.

We are proud to have been named a leader among Fortune 25 companies with a workforce that is 69% female and 39% minority. Over 45% of our leaders (director level or higher) are female and our commitment to diversity has been publicly recognized by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation (100% on the 2017 Corporate Equality Index) and by DiversityInc (listed as top 25 noteworthy company for 2016).

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.
