American Express is built on service and sustained by innovation. Established in 1850 as an express delivery service, American Express has remained a leader for generations by embracing both innovation and tradition. As our company has grown and evolved, sometimes reinventing our business outright, we have never strayed from the customer-service ethos and values on which we were built—trust, security, integrity, quality, good citizenship, respect and customer commitment.
As a global company it is vital to our success that our colleagues are as diverse as the customers and communities we serve.
American Express has built a diverse workforce and an inclusive workplace— a culture we are committed to continuing.
Through our Global Diversity & Inclusion strategy, we’re able to channel our efforts in specific ways. We continue to develop a talent pool that brings together unique perspectives, backgrounds and experiences. We foster a workplace culture where differences are valued and expressed freely and we back our colleagues with the support they need to take risks, learn, and collaborate.
HOLA (the Hispanic Origin & Latin-American Network) is a community that welcomes American Express colleagues who have an interest in the cultures and communities represented by Hispanic and Latin-American people. HOLA was created to establish a representative network of the Latin-American and Hispanic origin employee community or for those with an affinity to all the Latin-American and/or Spanish speaking cultures and ideas. HOLA has more than 1,000 members across the globe and is an immensely diverse network through which members exchange intercultural experiences and ideas.
We are excited to partner with HACE as it demonstrates our commitment to providing learning solutions and development opportunities to our Latinx talent.
