We’re the world’s
2nd largest eCommerce site.

And, in our opinion, the world’s
number 1 place to work.

At the very core of Staples is the entrepreneurial spirit that founded our company over 25 years ago -which means we live and breathe the energy of an always-growing, positive-thinking, fast-moving company. It’s this excitement, and passion for great ideas and new thinking, that inspires us to be the best we can be every day. That and of course, our company values.

Created with guidance and input from thousands of Staples associates, our values guide how we work with our customers and each other.

And, in addition to the satisfaction that comes from making our customers’ day easier, Staples offers lots of tangible benefits too.


  • Own it – Take personal responsibility. Act with urgency. Be accountable. Trust yourself and others to make decisions.
  • Say it like it is – Listen first to understand. Give and receive honest feedback. Share new ideas and brutal facts courageously. Speak up to defend our values.
  • Be caring – Support each other professionally and personally. Think about the impact of your actions and words. Remember to say “thank you”.
  • Keep it simple – Focus on priorities. Streamline and simplify. Highlight unnecessary complexity. Get rid of bureaucracy and red tape.
  • Work together – Collaborate. Rely on each other. Share resources, information and best practices across teams. Always think customer first.


There aren’t many businesses of our size that can say they conduct a global survey every two years. But with more than 85,000 associates, we think it’s the best way to get honest feedback and gather new ideas. Wondering what our latest survey said? That Staples associates are engaged and willing to go the extra mile to help us achieve our goals. We couldn’t be more proud.

Even with over 9,000 Staples® brand products to choose from, our customers still send hundreds of suggestions. Can’t wait for your big idea.


Peek into a corporate office conference room, visit any store, ride along in a delivery truck or listen in on a phone call, and you’ll see what makes Staples special: pride, integrity, teamwork and endless enthusiasm. We are one team that works hard for our customers, all across the globe. And we do it with honesty, collaboration and friendship. At Staples, every associate has a chance to shine. Will you be our next star?
