In addition, Digi-Key aggressively pursues remediation for any underutilization trending that may be identified by statistical analysis in conjunction with maintaining our Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Plan.

Because we value diverse ideas, Digi-Key has established a number of initiatives to promote and integrate diversity at every level within our organization.

"Working Styles" and "Treatment of Others" training are Digi-Key employee training programs that are provided to most employees in their first two years of employment, reinforcing our commitment to diversity and ensuring that our employees have the tools and resources they need to grow professionally. The emphasis of these programs is on understanding and valuing differences, and leveraging them in order to compete effectively in an ever-changing marketplace. These training programs are repeated with employees in a condensed e-learning refresher format on a regular basis during their subsequent years of employment at Digi-Key. In addition, managers and supervisors are provided with ongoing training regarding the value of diversity and the detection of discrimination in the workplace, through a program called Digi-Key Leadership Development Series.

Digi-Key wholeheartedly supports the spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act, continuously providing work accommodations to employees when required and appropriate.

In short, the Digi-Key management team is committed to encouraging diversity and removing discrimination from the Digi-Key workplace, resulting in a professional and pleasant work environment where employees and Digi-Key customers and business partners are highly valued.

Thief River Falls Community Information

Thief River Falls first developed as a lumber milling town. It also became a major agricultural service area because of the rich soil left by ancient, glacial Lake Agassiz. The unusual name, "Thief River," was given to the river by the Ojibwe and Dakota people. "Falls" was added to the name of the new city in 1896 because a series of rapids in the river had been converted to a waterfall by the construction of a dam. Until 1904, an Ojibwe village of 40 families was located where the Thief River and Red Lake River meet. The Great Northern and Soo Line Railroads brought prosperity when Thief River Falls became a center for shipping wheat. Today, the city continues its entrepreneurial spirit, preserving and respecting the past, yet growing and moving toward the future, especially in the manufacturing and distribution industries.
