A Foundation of Ownership

As one of the largest employee-owned companies in North America, Graybar has a distinct perspective on financial stewardship and how we do business. We’re proud to be employee-owned for more than 80 years and we place great value on our employee owners. But for us, employee ownership is about more than owning stock – it’s a mindset that shapes the way we work every day.

We’re compelled to be accountable and take responsibility for our results, because as employee owners, we all benefit when the company does well. For this reason, Graybar’s employees serve as the key ingredient to the company’s long-term success.

To help our employees understand how they can make a difference, we strive to communicate openly and transparently about the state of our business. We stay connected through all-employee web conferences, monthly branch meetings, an employee web portal and employee surveys. Through these channels, we discuss our goals, achievements and challenges, and collaborate on how we can meet the changing needs of our customers with innovative services and solutions.

Ultimately, by holding ourselves and each other accountable, combined with a workplace that strives for financial and personal success for employees, we create an environment in which we can better serve our customers.
