Thank you, Tim, for sharing with us your wisdom and insights to create a culture that cares. We appreciated learning about Home Depot’s focus on its people and ensuring all aspects of talent management are centered around Home Depot’s values. We were especially impressed by your response to employees during COVID 19…“We didn’t know everyone’s circumstances – but we knew that everyone had something, and we had to care for our people”.
