DIVERSITY, INCLUSION, BELONGING, EQUITY (DIBE)
At Sequoia, we believe in creating a space in which differences are acknowledged, accepted, and celebrated. We believe in mutual respect, recognition, and acceptance of others without bias, because everyone should feel safe and free to be themselves. We believe that success can only be achieved with diverse contributions, so we welcome them.
Sequoia’s DIBE Task Force is composed of team members from different positions, with different backgrounds, in different locations. Our mission is to cultivate an inclusive culture reflective of the diverse experiences and viewpoints of our team members, residents, and vendors. We strive to foster creativity, uplift and engage all voices, and embrace a wide range of backgrounds, knowledge, and perspectives.
WORK HARD, PLAY HARD
Our top sales performers are recognized in many ways, including an all expenses paid trip to a surprise destination with a guest of their choice, also known as Elite Retreat! But, that’s not all; we also reward them with spending money, gifts, excursions, and more.
We believe in work-life balance, which is why we provide four additional paid days off every year, also known as Rest & Recharge Days. Our team members can spend them however they like, resting at home or recharging in nature. It's up to you!
Our Spirit of Sequoia Awards were created to recognize our top performers and their contributions throughout the year. The nominees and winners of these awards are recognized in person at our annual Holiday Luncheon, because we want you to feel celebrated!
On Fun Day, we close our offices and come together to do something fun, all expenses paid! We have celebrated at amusement parks, sporting events, boat rides, and more. It’s all play, no work!
Our annual Holiday Luncheon is an amazing experience where we all come together to celebrate our accomplishments for the year. You can expect lots of mingling, fun activities, delicious food, incredible performances, gifts, prizes, and more. It’s a one-of-a-kind celebration!
We love to surprise our team members with fun treats and perks to show them we appreciate them. A few times per year, we will surprise our teams with Random Acts as a way to say "thank you."
IT'S WHAT WE DO
Sequoia embraces the guiding principle of giving back, and we know much of our success stems from relationships with the communities we serve. It's not a task or a reminder to make an effort; it's in our DNA. It's what we do.
That's why every Sequoia team member receives four personal paid days each year to volunteer with organizations of their choice, also known as PURPOSE days. You can use PURPOSE days to participate in a 5k fundraiser or walk to highlight social issues, or you can volunteer at your local school or church. The choice is yours!
Each region also participates in a team PURPOSE day to give back to our local communities as a group. In addition to donating our time, we also regularly fundraise and hold donation drives for local communities and individuals in need.
