A workplace that reflects our values.
No matter who you are, Wayfair is a place where you can bring your whole self. We know that our unique perspectives make us stronger, smarter, and well positioned for success.
At Wayfair, the underpinning of our commitment to DEI is the belief that, “We are eclectic – designed for all.” There is no vision without variety, and there is no success without the celebration of our individual strengths. In our pursuit for equity, we do our best to tailor everyone’s experience with us – to help each unique individual feel at home at work.
What if every room looked the same? What if we could only decorate with one color? There is no vision without variety. And there is no success without the celebration of our individual strengths.
We are not just one thing to one person. Wayfair is a company fit for all. We do our best to tailor everyone’s experience with us, to help each unique individual feel at home, at work.
Everyone should feel seen, heard, and considered when they work with us. We welcome new ideas, different perspectives, and we love when people express their personal styles. We are eclectic – designed for all.
At Wayfair, we are committed to embedding Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) across all aspects of our organization, and we know that transparency and accountability are crucial to driving real change. That is why today, we are proud to introduce “Change Starts at Home,” our first-annual DEI report. This report captures the foundational improvements and new initiatives we have launched to accelerate this important work in 2020, as well as our representation data, which spans across 16 dimensions of diversity. This data is global and includes all Wayfair employees because it is important to us that everyone is represented in all of our DEI considerations and conversations.

In our home we strive to create an environment where all employees feel comfortable and empowered to bring their authentic selves to work every day. To help ensure this, Wayfair has employee-created and led Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), supported by our Culture & Inclusion team, with the aim to create safe, inclusive spaces for community building, networking, and professional development. This March our Women+ ERG celebrated Women’s History Month by organizing an internal fireside chat with Wayfair board member, Anke Schäferkordt. The event was moderated by Fiona Tan, Global Head of Customer and Supplier Technology. Throughout the hour-long chat Anke shared invaluable insights about the importance of challenging the status quo, male allyship, mentorship and much more.

Sculpting the Future of Home: How Wayfair Co-Founder Steve Conine’s Hands-on Approach Inspires Innovation
You can’t find couches made of frozen solid lake-harvested ice blocks on Wayfair.com, but on a cold winter day, look no further than co-founder Steve Conine’s backyard to find that kind of glacial decor. While the comfort and longevity of ice-based furniture might be up for debate, the lessons that creating it can teach are undeniable: “When you’re getting ready to hack off a chunk of slippery ice, the consequences of rushing to action without thinking ahead are obvious. It’s a strong reminder of the importance of managing risk and taking the right steps toward achieving your desired outcome,” said Steve. “With a chainsaw running, it’s a good idea to ask yourself, what am I OK with losing and what can I never get back if I make a mistake?”

During the Presidential campaign season in America, it can be almost impossible to escape the near constant coverage and conversations surrounding the premiere candidates and their positions on the issues. However, as voters look further down the ballot, they’ll find lesser-known candidates in local races who don’t receive the same kind of national attention that Presidential candidates do. As a result, voters may find themselves uninformed on those candidates' views and unsure of who they’d prefer to vote for.

Connect With Community
Affinity and Employee Resource Groups (AGs/ERGs) create brave, inclusive spaces for community building, networking, and professional development and support all Wayfairians’ continued learning about diversity, equity, and inclusion. ERGs are employee-created and employee-led with support from the Wayfair Talent team.
What Our People Are Saying
Amanda, Women+@Work ERG
“One of the biggest honors of my career has been the opportunity to co-lead the Women+@Wayfair Employee Resource Group of Boston. Each day, I am inspired by the incredible talent, resilience, and grit of women+ at Wayfair. Our goal is to provide a meaningful framework and forum for the women+ communities at Wayfair to celebrate, learn, and amplify action.”
Patrick, WayOut ERG
“When I joined Wayfair, there was no formalized group for the LGBTQ+ community in Berlin. I found some like-minded people who were excited to start WayOut Berlin together. Now, a year later, we’re 100+ members and growing!”
Amber, WayBlack ERG
“I love being a lead for WayBlack Bryan. This gives us the opportunity to speak to colleagues around the company, educating them on the importance of respecting all of the talent that Black/African Americans bring to the company. Being able to use both of my passions of advocating for Black people and teaching/training our allies the best way to help their teams grow and adapt makes my career fulfilling, and I am so thankful for that.”
Partnerships & Networks
Wayfair partners with a number of organizations to source and hire talented people with a variety of backgrounds and experience levels.
