Our People

We’ve often said that what sets us apart from other companies is not what we do, but how we do it—how we conduct ourselves in our daily work and how we treat our people. But it’s during challenging times that the resilience of our values is truly put to the test.

During fiscal 2020, Schnitzer, along with the rest of the world, responded to the COVID-19 pandemic and its resulting implications for employee safety and well-being, remote work, and employee engagement. We also took steps to better support our Black employees amid a national reckoning with systemic racism.

We’ve weathered these changes thanks to a robust culture of transparency and ethical behavior that is part of our Company’s foundation. Further bolstering our approach is our transition this year to our new One Schnitzer operating model, enabling our business and our employees to be stronger together.

As we continue to make our way through an uncertain time, we’ll stay focused on our people, the continued source of our success.
