Employee Culture

Employee Culture and the Quest Way

Taken together, Purpose, Strategy, and Culture comprise The Quest Way, our fresh approach to how we work together to achieve our goals as a company

Our CULTURE, or how we work, is powered by the 5Cs:

Our culture is an inclusive one that is strengthened by our commitment to diversity, celebrating the variety of differences among us. In the workplace, this means having employees with a wide variety of perspectives and backgrounds, welcoming a large range of ideas, skills, and talents and fostering an environment of creativity and innovation. We achieve this by:

  • Increasing the visibility and accountability of senior leaders in Inclusion & Diversity efforts
  • Instilling a culture of trust, collaboration, allyship, and belonging at all levels
  • Encouraging broad Employee Business Network participation and strategic business integration

A highlight of our actions include:

The Quest Inclusion & Diversity Council will advise Quest and senior leaders as I&D goals and priorities are established, act as a visible I&D leader and represent the needs and perspectives of diverse demographics across the company and our communities.

Quest is proud of our 11 Employee Business Networks (EBNs). Our EBNs are vital to driving The Quest Way and our Purpose:

Working together to create a healthier world, one life at a time

All EBNs are open to all employees. They create a platform to engage new colleagues and senior leaders, drive education and advocacy, access leadership development opportunities, drive community involvement, and influence business strategy.

Courageous Conversations on Race and Inclusion

On June 4, 2020, we hosted our first Courageous Conversation, a virtual employee event that aimed to elevate and honor a difficult but critical topic, seek feedback on a path forward, and spark an ongoing discussion at Quest. The feedback was so positive, we continued the initiative and held over 60 conversations with 7,400 employees in 2020.

"This conversation has made me feel the most proud I have ever been to be an employee of Quest. Thank you!"
