Putting People First
Our core value of Family drives our employee health and safety programs, shapes our learning and development initiatives, and guides our efforts to support a diverse and inclusive workforce. But we aren’t just focused on employees — we also support the communities where we operate. We give back directly as an organization, and we empower employees to give back in meaningful ways.
While the pandemic continued to challenge in-person volunteering, our campus-led volunteer groups found ways to support their communities during the holiday season. In San Marcos, employees teamed up to make the holidays brighter for local families by donating goods to the Community Resource Center’s holiday basket drive and collecting gifts for children through Toys for Tots.

Our people are our most valued asset. We launched several new learning and development initiatives in 2021 to help grow leaders inside Hunter and promote the retention of top talent by helping employees nurture their careers. Our new programs focus on boosting employee business leadership skills, self-empowerment, and more.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
We recently rolled out unconscious bias training on a limited basis. To gauge its effectiveness, we sought feedback from a broad range of employees, with 71% reporting that the training shifted their perspectives. Several employees also shared that the training has changed the way that they respond to situations at work and in their personal lives.
As a new material topic, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) is of utmost importance for all our stakeholders. After our DEI Council is formed, we will publish specific DEI goals.

Employee Health and Safety
As COVID-19 vaccines rolled out in 2021, Hunter Industries hosted several on-site clinics to ensure all our employees could protect themselves. We procured vaccines directly to ensure that they were available. Altogether, we achieved an incredible 98% vaccination rate in Tijuana, a 98% rate in San Marcos, and a 94% rate in Clermont.
Responsible Supply Chain Practices
During our 2021 materiality assessment, we made the decision to approach supply chain responsibility holistically. This will help us fine-tune our evaluation of each supplier to ensure that our relationships around CSR are geared toward relevant issues. We plan to implement a customized evaluation process to support ongoing supplier development.
