Our Commitment

"Diversity and inclusion are naturally woven throughout the framework of Harris Teeter, starting with our own associates and the customers that we serve. Respecting our associates as individuals by valuing their differences and similarities is an integral part of our business strategy and serves to strengthen our company. On every level of our organization, we will build a qualified workforce that reflects the diversity of our communities. In doing so, we recognize that creative energies and ideas generated by a diverse group of associates will always exceed those of any one particular group.” 

– Rod Antolock, President

“Diversity, equity and inclusion guides us as a behavioral and moral compass in all that we do every day. As a company, we will encourage each associate to bring their whole self to work and have their authentic voice heard while treating every associate with respect and showing appreciation for the qualities that make each of us unique.  In doing so, we will foster an environment of inclusion, providing every associate the opportunity to have a seat at the table.”

 - Tammy DeBoer, SVP Merchandising, 
Operations & Marketing

“The associates at Harris Teeter work in a very diverse environment with co-workers of different backgrounds, genders, races and personalities.  While our workforce is a mix of diverse associates, it is an inclusive mix of diverse associates that makes our business work.  With a team of smart, hardworking individuals, we can produce amazing results, but with a team of inclusive, smart, hardworking individuals - like we have at Harris Teeter – we can achieve impossible results.” 

– Ted Harrington, Vice President of Human Resources

“It takes people with different ideas, strengths, interests and cultural backgrounds to make Harris Teeter an Incredible Place to Work and Shop. To achieve this, we must foster an environment of respect and inclusion for every associate we encounter as well as the communities we serve.”
