Capital One, Private-Sector Employer of the Year
Capital One is building a leading information-based tech firm on a mission to help customers succeed by bringing ingenuity, simplicity and humanity to banking. Still founder-led, Capital One believes success comes when customers are succeeding.
Guided by shared values, Capital One associates thrive in an environment where collaboration and openness are valued. Innovation is powered by perspective and teamwork, and respect for one another leads to superior results. Work is conducted with humility and a deep respect for a responsibility to help customers achieve their goals.
Capital One actively recruits people with disabilities (PwD) via local partnerships with the Department for the Blind & Visually Impaired and Department of Aging & Rehabilitative Services in Virginia. Since 2011 Capital One has participated in job fairs sponsored by Equal Opportunity Publication’s CAREERS & the disABLED magazine. Recruitment has also taken place at the Dallas Mayor’s EmployAbility Fair and virtual job fairs with Bender Consulting Associates.
The Disability Recruiting Team at Capital One has worked with a number of organizations to provide development opportunities for college students with disabilities and wounded veterans and their spouses. Examples include networking and match-making sessions at the U.S. Business Leadership Network (USBLN) Annual Conference and the Walter Reed Military Hospital in Washington, DC.
Via a partnership with the National Organization on Disability, Capital One received help in developing its initial disability inclusion strategy and CapAbilities Business Resource Group (BRG), which launched in 2014. It’s a forum for Capital One associates with disabilities, caregivers of individuals with disabilities and allies to create a support network, conquer stereotypes and extend community outreach. Established in 2009, Capital One’s Autism Spectrum Connection group serves as a resource for parents with children on the autism spectrum. It helps associate members navigate health insurance and financial issues, access insight, enable community services, and create a support network.
In 2016 Capital One sponsored the Invictus Games and its worldwide competitors. The Invictus Games are an international Paralympic-style, multi-sport event in which wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and veterans take part in sports.
Capital One received a perfect score on the inaugural and 2016 Disability Equality Index established by the USBLN and American Association of People with Disabilities. As one of 21 corporate sponsors, Capital One hosted the USBLN’s America’s Disability Rights Museum on Wheeler in Richmond, VA in July 2016.
