“The positive energy fostered by a diverse and inclusive team is exemplified in Toys “R” Us’s distribution centers, through the team's "Differently-Abled" hiring initiative. Over the past few years, our DC's have hired over 250 team members with disabilities, many of whom have had difficulty securing a job throughout their lives. This concerted talent strategy has reminded us that valuing each team member's strengths means valuing diversity. That, in turn, has enhanced our collective team's contribution and commitment to delivering joy to children of all ages!”Jeff Kellan
