Whether in store or on our store support team, there's opportunity at Fleet Feet for those who believe in the privilege of serving and the power of running.
How We Live Our Core Values at Fleet Feet
PUT PEOPLE FIRST
This really embodies what Fleet Feet represents to me. Whether it's helping a customer find the right shoes and gear for the race they are training for or helping them cross that race finish line safely and successfully through one of our training programs, our goal at Fleet Feet is to put our people first. Fleet Feet changes lives in every action we do!
DO THE RIGHT THING
Do the Right Thing is one of Fleet Feet's core values that I try to bring to life every day in my community. Whether we're partnering with a local non-profit to raise money or awareness for a local cause, building a community that people feel safe and welcome in, or providing top tier service to each customer that comes through the door, this is a value that drives a lot of what we do at Fleet Feet.
IT'S A PRIVILEGE TO SERVE
Fleet Feet’s core value, It's a Privilege to Serve, is a constant reminder for me that my work is not just a job, but a chance to make a difference in the lives of our customers and community. For me, it's a privilege to serve and to help others achieve their goals and dreams.
CREATE VALUE WITH EVERY ACTION
Create Value with Every Action is one of Fleet Feet's core values that I try to bring to life every day, not only at work, but also in my personal life. Each moment and every action in every day has the ability to shift perspective, make a difference and take you to a new level that you never thought possible. This is what I believe we do each day at Fleet Feet. We encourage each other and our customers to reach goals they never thought possible— one action at a time.
LEAD AND INFLUENCE IN ALL WE DO
I have been blessed to have worked under really amazing leaders so far at Fleet Feet. They have shown me the power of great leadership and how that can change one's view of work. It has been a goal of mine to embody the core value of Lead and Influence in all we do so I can give back to my team and community, like my leaders have given to me.
ENGAGE AND EMPOWER OUR COMMUNITY
Engaging and Empowering Our Community is a passion of mine that has been ignited by working at Fleet Feet. Being raised in a military family in Eastern Europe, I have an immense passion for supporting veterans and helping people in general. I volunteer my time, effort and resources to help make a positive impact in my local community. Collaborating with multiple non-profit organizations like Off-Road Outreach, Fort Bragg MWR, American Red Cross and Together We Stand allows me to support the less fortunate by donating gently used shoes to homeless veterans and stand up against racism. Working at Fleet Feet is a constant reminder that we're all in this together and we can all try and make the world a better place.
BE PRESENT IN EVERY MOMENT
One of the things I love most about running is that whether I am running alone or with friends, I can shut out distractions and be mindful of what I am doing in that very moment. Working at Fleet Feet affords me the opportunity to have the same experience at work. It’s a joy to have a career where I can be present in every moment and immerse myself in an environment that combines my passion for running with my professional skill set.
WORK, SWEAT, AND LIVE PASSIONATELY
In my 14-year career at Fleet Feet I've seen this core value in action consistently. Personally, running changed my life. It’s powerful to have peers that I can lace up my running shoes with before, during or after work. Running helps us connect on both a personal and professional level. The ideas that are sparked on shared runs add value to our work and often it’s hard to imagine they could have come up in a confined office space. While running is important to me, you don’t have to be a runner to Work, Sweat and Live Passionately at Fleet Feet.
Run Together is put into practice every day, as it exemplifies a healthy disposition in our approach to the duties asked of each one of us. The growth opportunities, challenges, wins, losses, and everything in between can all be leveraged in our collective favor, so long as our team is strongly tethered and moving together towards our common goals.
DEI AT FLEET FEET
We believe that grassroots outreach is vital to make positive and lasting change. We have created two key pillars of action and accountability to focus our DEI efforts on people and partnerships.LEARN MORE
FLEET FEET MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
Fleet Feet's Mentorship Program is a 10-week long program offered in the spring and fall, and is focused on professional growth, skill development and networking opportunities for mentees and mentors. It’s a space to break down barriers, increase communication and build stronger working relationships.
EMPLOYEE RESOURCE GROUPS
Our employee resource groups (ERG) are voluntary, employee-led groups that are formally supported by Fleet Feet. We value ERGs because they build and support community, encourage a culture of belonging and inclusivity, provide leadership development opportunities, encourage collaboration and support innovation across the brand.LEARN MORE
